Too much capeshit

Too many retarded manchildren watching cartoons meant for prepubescent children.

It's a board full of newfags and hypersensitive landwhales that I visit purely out of habit.

I stopped browsing here for like 2 years at one point and I come back and it's pretty much the same boring old board as it has always been. The tastes are so similar most threads end up circle jerks and they're filled with the same people over and over. It really just needs more variety and people who actually read comics and form opinions on them and less people who don't read comics and just repeat popular opinions

/co/ used to be tolerable, but then the age of Tumblr cartoons happened.

Generals were a bad idea that's made the board meaner and more cubby holed for the questionable value of making it easier for people to hide shit they don't like even though they go to complain about it in thread anyway.

The threads that focus on cool shit and storytimeing are still pretty great. There's more bait then there was a few years ago, and a lot of the shared group stuff like streams and the like has gone elsewhere which is a shame.

Its not the best or the worst place on the internet, like most of 4chan.

At this point? It's a red scare-type witchhunt with everybody accusing everybody else of being a SJW while the very small fraction of /co/ that actually is SJW derails entire threads with one post.

Tumblr is shit, but in terms of /co/, the /pol/-tier overreaction to the supposed Tumblr threat has been without a doubt the most damaging thing to happen to this board.

Also consolewars bullshit. That's a close second.

>>79761326

/co/ has always been:
left-of center
full of manchildren
full of women
full of gays

/pol/ now derails threads if any such left-of-center or socially liberal opinions end up being expressed. Sure, there are some SJWs on this board, but I don't think they've changed anything like so many paranoid newfags think.

For thse down on /co/, where online do you go to talk/learn about comics?

Damn right. There should be separate cartoon and comics boards, and it should be about JUST comics.

I've heard reddit is better but I hate the idea of up votes and having a name attached to all my posts. Also having a different board for every specific thing sounds like shit.

>>79762029
Undoubtedly. It's interesting how 4chan was once fairly apolitical, usually just contrarian, and now there's some weird far-right dogma that seeps in through /pol/ and you get flamed for pointing out that things haven't always been this way.

Nah, reddit's /comicbooks isn't as good. There is some good stuff now and then, but the level of knowledge is even lower than /co/ because reddit gets more people.

There are some boards dedicated to serious comic commentary, including European/indie/underground stuff, but almost no one ever posts or comments in them.

Why do you keep using a non-sequitir normative argument? I'm saying you're stupid for complaining about something that is obviously going to be the way things work..
>>
>>79762083

I see it as a reaction to the sort of left-leaning "bias" that runs through Twitter and Tumblr. /pol/ is the closest thing to an "answer" for those sites as anything around here gets, and since /pol/-types can't stay on that board, their virulent strain of right-winger bigotry - whether real or "ironic", doesn't matter which - has infected the entire site.

And it's goddamn hard to have a decent conversation when the average poster wants to be an tryhard edgelord bigot than actually have a rational and reasoned discussion, even when they disagree on a certain point or opinion.
>>
>>79762201
Yeah, I know it's never going to happen but it would be nice to have it. I'm not one of those "LOL CAPESHIT FOR MORONS" fags, there's stuff to enjoy everywhere, but it would be nice to have a place to discuss just non-Big 2 stuff since it tends to drown out everything else.
>>
>>79762230

You shouldn't use words like that, for one. Any buzzword that SJWs use, accurate though they may be in a given context, can not be used in conversation on 4chan. It's guaranteed multiple vitriolic replies.

>but it would be nice to have a place to discuss just non-Big 2 stuff since it tends to drown out everything else.
Y'know, why not make threads on those comics on /co/? It could be a step somewhere as complaining about them not being on here isn't going to achieve anything.
>>
>>79762271

I'm well aware of the vitriol to be found on 4chan. It doesn't scare me. I was /co/'s whipping boy for years, and it taught me not to take 4chan's bullshit seriously.

You know because /a/ has fucking anime so might as well jumble cartoons with comics.

/a/ has manga too, mon. The whole idea of splitting /co/ into comics and cartoons boards is stupid anyway, and the whole merge with their respective /a/ equivalents is even dumber and disregarding the denizens of both boards.

Either way, metathreads are against the rules and yet they have an almost constant presence on /co/.

This. Make the threads if you want em. It's not like /co/ moves that fast. Hell I remember a story-time of a French comic about an animator in North Korea was up for days. Was a good read too, very fascinating subject matter.

/co/ is a slow board. Post the threads and people will populate them.

Waifus, underage kids, nerds, people hating things because people love them, people hating things because they get off on hating already terrible things, porn, generals, cancer, shitposts, off-topic discussion, and degenerates.

>>79762415
But with /a/ it works. Chinese girl cartoons and comics, no complaints there. But /co/ has such a wide variety of fucking cartoons spanning from every fucking which way in the world. Then you add capeshit to the mix and it's a fucking disaster alongside whatever cancerous web comics that's in the ether, it's all just fucking gay.

It was a really good and nice board ,for the western lovers, but the problem was that it was away too friendly and /co/ left in cancer such as newfags (that don't lurk or learn the board culture), tumblrfags and other internet scum like furries.

Now with the "nerd culture" that the capes movies has promoted, we have to deal with /v/ and /tv/ ledditors too.

There is a direct correlation between "SJW shit" and fetish shit. Tumblr is basically nothing but SJW shit and porn. It's the same audience and the come over here and ruin everything for everyone, because their anonymous they can get away with more.

And the mods defacto enforce this. A thread talking about a comic or cartoon dies unless you constantly bump it yourself and a thread talking about something sexual or some fetish will go on and on and on for fucking days. Even though we made /aco/ these threads still won't stop. They won't delete barely on-topic threads about fetishes but they will instantly delete threads talking about anything controversial in actual comics or cartoons. Shows where their priorities are, just like with all SJW it's actually secretly about sex.

A lot of them are probably women, there is nothing more female than avoiding all controversy while praising anything sexual in nature to the high heavens.

>>79761292
>>79761363
>>79761450

But they sure as fuck spam the report button until the mods come, which is very leddit/tumblr of them.

There is no reason to delete those threads, all threads 404 eventually. Just let /co/ take out their anger and frustration. I'm sorry tumblr is too immature to ever share a board with people who aren't jerking themselves off like they are.
>>
You know what I hate about /co/? Dumb off-topic threads like this tend to get lots of attention and be faster than on-topic threads; they're not deleted right away too, which makes people think they're okay to post and do they show up often.

Not enough cartoons from my liking, most of the discussion is for currently airing cartoons. I'd like more "indie" or "obscure" discussion, like Waltz with Bashir or My Dog Tulip.

I also wish the mods were more forgiving of anime in /co/.

/v/ was right, indiefags do have their heads up their asses.

This is so true. I would honestly just be okay if they kept one waifu and one beefcake thread and banned it from the rest of the board.
>>
>>79763881
Thanks for the idea, I will make a /co/ general thread a week from now, keep a look out
>>
Dude, /co/ is a board. How can a board have an opinion on itself dawg? It isn't even sentient!
>>
Furryshit, wafushit, capeshit, tumblrshit, fetish-shit and cancerous /a/ memes.
>>
>>79761840
Its the oldest one on the board.

One of the biggest hurdles to get over with getting into non-cape books is the insufferable attitude of the capeshit posters who'd rather bitch than post about cool stuff.,
>>
>>79762230
We DO get the crazies over here, though. Comics are a battleground the SJW types think they can win on, like vidya.

Yeah, some are trolls, and some might even be those /pol/ false flaggers we're all giving them so much credit for. They all show up here because comic nerds are used to being shit on by people and get defensive super easily; its an easy place to practice more nuanced internet bullshit techniques because of how easy it is to get a reaction.
>>
/co/ is perfect, it's other boards and other websites that bring all the annoying stuff

>>79762315
He's probably just sick of whiners bitching about capes instead of posting about indie comics they like, which some of us capefans would be into reading about.

you pronounce it /co/, not /co/, you faggot!

"God if only we could split the boards up even more, that'll fix everything!"

Fuck man I've been hearing that since 2008 and it hasn't.

That's what I meant by streaming dying down, which is more the sites that host's fault than /co/'s but has directly effected our ability to go "hey i'm streaming this if people want to watch." and spread older or rarer toons around that way.

man that's not how 4chan works. Whenever we get more regulated we get more shitty. I can't stand the waifuers too but that's BASICALLY moderated forum posting at that point.

>virulent strain of far right bigotry

And this is why I am rapidly finding the American left to be just as distasteful as Republicans are. BAWWWWW, ANYONE THAT DISAGREES WITH ME IS A BIGOT! BAWWWW, ANYONE THAT DISAGREES WITH ME HATES JESUS AND AMERICA! It's exactly the same fucking shit from both sides.

Get fucked. You fucks whining "Go back to /pol!" when folks who have been here all along dare to express their opinions about shit are absolutely fucking disgusting.

It's entirely possible to disagree with someone on a subject without being a bigot. But when right-wingers express their disagreement with racist in-jokes like "dindu nuffin"...well, even "ironic" racism is still racism.

>folks who have been here all along dare to express their opinions about shit

You can express an opinion without sounding like a bigoted asshole. Example:

>Creative types should be able to write whatever story they want, and they shouldn't be pilloried for any decisions regarding "diversity" *unless* they really fuck things up in that regard (writing a black character who's just a bundle of negative stereotypes, for example).
>>
>>79768390
>It's entirely possible to disagree with someone on a subject without being a bigot. But when right-wingers express their disagreement with racist in-jokes like "dindu nuffin"...well, even "ironic" racism is still racism.

And yet "male tears", "die cis scum", and the frankly racist as fuck shit coming from the Left is beyond reproach. Yeah, no.

And beyond that: It's words. Words won't fucking hurt you. There is no harm that comes from bigotry on the internet. You might be a pussy that gets their panties in a twist, but that's no excuse to curtail peoples' freedom of speech.

>You can express an opinion without sounding like a bigoted asshole. Example:

And simply put, it's not your place to decide that someone "sounding like a bigoted asshole" means he shouldn't be able to talk. I'd say "sorry," but you need to learn to take your offense, and shove it up your ass. Because that is the cost of a free and open exchange of ideas.

Whining about "bigotry" and "hate speech" and bullcrap like that ALWAYS has a chilling effect on the WHOLE discussion.
>>
>>79768415
>is beyond reproach
But shit like that gets criticized literally all the time. Do you think a few fucks on Tumblr represent all people left of center?
>>
>>79768390
People bitch about people writing the stories they want anyway. See: all the complaints about faith being fat and SU. Neither side cares about creative freedom, its all about shoving l their political views into everything.
>>
Things like DCuck/DCasual and Marveldrone derivatives need to be auto-filtered.
>>
>>79768415

>And yet "male tears", "die cis scum", and the frankly racist as fuck shit coming from the Left is beyond reproach.

No. It isn't. That's all grade-school-level horseshit and it's little-to-no different than the "dindu nuffin" and "LOLJEWS" shit that you'd see on /pol/. (The only difference is the left-winger shitflinging like you're pointing out often targets groups with greater sociopolitical power, whereas right-winger shitflinging often targets maligned portions of the population.)

>Words won't fucking hurt you.

And if I directly called you an idiot to your face once every waking hour of every day for the next ten years, I'm sure you'd feel right as rain once the decade was up! Yeah no, words can be as hurtful as any physical form of violence; just because you can't see the harm done doesn't erase it.

>it's not your place to decide that someone "sounding like a bigoted asshole" means he shouldn't be able to talk

Oh, by all means, feel free to talk. Feel free to paint yourself as a bigoted asshole. Just remember that you're only giving your "opponents" more rope with which they can hang you.

You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

I think the Hillary campaign has been tapping into the gender war zeitgeist pretty fuckin' hard lately, and that's fairly mainstream.

And, granted, I *do* see it criticized-- But a fuck of a lot less in general, and pretty much NEVER by the folks bitching about "right wing bigotry." Just like I never see the folks bitching about the left's lies and hatred take a moment to realize that yeah, they're reading fucking Breitbart and pretending that's an ethical journalistic institution now.

(Hey, take it as an admission, I've dealt with some pretty fucking disgusting folks on both sides of the political divide.)

>>79768509
Huh. Three bingo squares. Nice.

Privilege is a bullshit concept. The saying "words can be as hurtful as any physical form of violence" really shows your ignorance and lack of experience with physical violence. And mate, it's fuckin' hilarious that you think I'd hang and you wouldn't shortly follow.
>>
>>79768612

>The saying "words can be as hurtful as any physical form of violence" really shows your ignorance and lack of experience with physical violence.

When I was a kid, I was bullied like goddamn - *and* I used to hit other kids for it. Around the time I entered the sixth grade, I stopped trying to be a violent little shit, and I paid for my passivity by getting bullied - physically and verbally - far worse from sixth grade through the eleventh than I did from first through fifth. A decade's worth of bullying will fuck you up, even when you leave school; I not only have a shitload of social anxiety as a result of having virtually no friends in school, but it's hard for me to consistently think well of myself and anything I do in this world after having shitloads of people tell me on a regular basis (and in varying terminology) that I'm a complete fuck-up.

I have *plenty* of experience with violence, physical and psychological.

>it's fuckin' hilarious that you think I'd hang and you wouldn't shortly follow

I least I'd have enough self-awareness to know why I'm hanging. Y'know, right before my neck snaps and all. That...that would put a quick end to my self-awareness, I tell you hwat.
>>
>>79768718
Y'know, that's all nice and cute, but it's an anecdote. I went through some fucking severe as hell bullying throughout all of highschool, and it really didn't fuck me up. No real social anxiety according to my friends, just a few weird habits, but I'm on fucking /co/ so that was a given.

Getting my face flattened and then being stepped on in a mugging certainly did fuck me up, however. I'd wager that would fuck a lot more people up than bullying.

Like, you seriously want to shit on the entire concept of free exchange of ideas-- That glorious, messy, hateful, loving, absolutely mind-blowing process that's better than any drug-- because you got bullied in school.

What a fucking pussy.
>>
>>79768850

>Like, you seriously want to shit on the entire concept of free exchange of ideas-- That glorious, messy, hateful, loving, absolutely mind-blowing process that's better than any drug-- because you got bullied in school.

Actually? No, I don't. I'm more than willing to listen to ideas with which I disagree. But that doesn't mean I automatically have to take those ideas seriously, and it doesn't mean I can't point out that some ideas can be construed as bigoted or otherwise (ugh) "problematic". If you're going to champion the cause of "free exchange of ideas" but rip on people who criticise your ideas as being "censors" or "enemies of free speech", you're not much better than the people who think racists should shut up because they're racists.

I say let the racists speak - the more they talk, the more they indict their own ideas. But by the same token, I don't have an obligation to listen, and if the mods/admins here don't want racist bullshit on their site, they have no obligation to allow it. And if you're going to champion the cause of "the free exchange of ideas", you'd better be ready for people to criticise those ideas.
>>
>>79768938
Fair enough then. I'm so goddamn used to folks saying "words can be harmful!" and then IMMEDIATELY moving to censorship that I made an assumption where I shouldn't have. Which, admittedly, DOES make me a hypocrite, given that I was just bitching about that type of assumption.

That said,
> I don't have an obligation to listen, and if the mods/admins here don't want racist bullshit on their site, they have no obligation to allow it.

Is... legally correct, but the kind of thing I really do feel undermines valuable traditions with inadequate legal protections in the modern age, such as the right to reply.

>>79768993
Largely true, but irrelevant to the current discussion. Bottom left on the political axis and voting Sanders here.

Ain't a problem, man. I have an itchy trigger finger when it comes to censorship, too - even censorship of ideas with which I disagree. (After all, popular speech doesn't need protection.)

>the kind of thing I really do feel undermines valuable traditions with inadequate legal protections in the modern age, such as the right to reply

Yeah, but there ain't much you can do about it if the mods don't want you saying racist shit or whatever. Best you can do is move to another site and bitch about shit. (I suggest Tumblr. ;)

I only view maybe less than 10 threads and hide the rest. But where else am I supposed to talk about comics? Sometimes here is a good place to find new comics I would have never heard about otherwise.

The community of comics and cartoons is not related to the topic of comics and cartoons.
>>
It's the only place I'd ever want to talk about comics with more than one person. There's a lot of very knowledgeable people, plenty of folk who can give good recommendations even on obscure stuff, storytimes people do out of the goodness of their hearts...it's a fun place
Sure, a lot of threads can turn to shit quickly with SJW boogeyman stuff and so on, but I like to think that it's all a big joke that everyone's in on. We ARE all in on it, right?
