My post was quite ambiguous, was it not? It wasn't aimed at you, to be honest. If it was, I'd have written your name instead of 'people' in there. Though I do agree that it was my bad. The post itself was weirdly worded.
It just reminded me of many people I saw over the interwebz who were crying "omg OP too longgg!!11!" while they had no qualms about watching/following Naruto from the very beginning and I thought out aloud on the topic (like I do quite a lot of times. This post comes to mind). Plus, you said that you, pretty much, skipped the whole first part of Naruto just because you "couldn't be bothered". It would be stupid of me if I were to say "heyy One Piece = Naruto in number of chapterzz you're a hypocrite, Tara" after that sentence. Since you, you know, skipped half of it. A manga/anime you were familiar with. I know you wouldn't think of reading/watching a manga/anime which is unknown to you if you couldn't be bothered to read/watch half of Naruto. Hope that makes sense! ;p
