Aniblog Tourney

Huh, lol what. There’s a tournament pitting anime blogs together (direct link removed due to RP’s arrogance, google this little self-aggrandizing scheme yourself, if you really want to care about it)?! Um… what?!

I don’t think it’s worth fighting for, but for what it is, I am just going to check it out and see what happens next. Feel free not to vote for me, lol. Also, the creators could have given the blogs in the tournament a heads-up email too. Y’know, just for being polite and such.

I guess whoever wins this gets a humongous e-pen0s boost, eh? I have a feeling it’s going to come down to a battle between Random Curiosity and BlogSuki at the finals, ahaha.

    @wut you act as if i am forced to defend my position. i am only one of many people who felt this whole contest thing was offensive and now i have to construct you, of all people, some kind of extensive lengthy response explaining my view? i think my view is already pretty clear, so i do not know what you, sir, hope to achieve by asking such an asinine question like “what do you hope to achieve?”

    i cannot help but suspect you’re one of the contest organizers disguised under another name if you ask me.

    Clearly wut and RP are the same person. Nice sockpuppeting RP, but I’m on to you.

    @casval Honestly, the negative comments are mostly limited to the comments in this post. I’m not patching anything up, I am adjusting what I say based on an increased understanding of Kurogane’s point. I didn’t quite understand where he was coming from before. I do have a better understanding now. It’s how conversations work. Someone says something, understanding ensues and the the conversation evolves.

    But to your point, so the only way something like this would have any value is for it to be run completely by anons? How realistic is that? So here at least I’m willing to be a “face” and engage with you, responding to criticisms, but instead the better route would’ve been for us to have hid behind anon accounts? If I recall correctly, even the ABA was run by some prominent bloggers at the time.

    “And of course, someone doesn’t want them to patch up for the lulz, right?”

    I admit, if there is enough dorama, I will report on it.

    For the lulz, as you say. :D

    I laughed at how you guys thought RP and I are the same guys. Frankly, I didn’t even read RP’s blog until this happened. And I am one of those lurkers that followed Kurogane’s blog for ages. I don’t agree with what RP did in regards to not sending notification… but that does not justify the amount of bashing you guys are doing to him and the organizers.

    But whatever helps you guys sleep earlier at night. :)

    Anyway, Kurogane had posted a new post up and the organizers have admitted their mistakes, so that’s that. I am not going to be contributing anymore to this “conversation”.
