So not too long ago, I made a thread where basically all I did was ask for people to suggest quality anime to me, seeing as I got a brand new internet connection which was much faster than the one I previously had. Karl Olson (who, if this is any sign of his work, should not be a staff member at all) closed the thread immediately for "implications of piracy." Now, I see a couple of big flaws in this. The first being that, first off, I never explicitly said that is what I was going to do. I don't even see how it was implied. For all he knows, I planned on watching it from whatever streams I could find. Now you can refute this point with saying that it was 2007 and there was no Crunchyroll or Hulu or anything big streaming licensed anime, but this in itself leads me to my second big flaw in his argument- If my thread was closed for "implications of piracy" then 80% of the threads in the anime board should have been closed as well. Back then there were a ton of thread talkbacks for anime that hadn't even been licensed stateside, as well as talkbacks for anime that were currently licensed domestically that were clearly pirated via fansubs. Here is the thread in question - http://www.toonzone.net/forums/anime-forum/191346-anime-recommendations.html#.U8NJ6vldWSo I'm not asking for much, just for my thread to be unlocked and bumped. It is also worth noting that it was my first thread (and I think first post) on the site, so I personally believe Karl was using this to personally attack/intimidate a new member. P.S. - Please excuse the poor grammar in the aforementioned thread, I was only 13.
