In short, you’re wasting your time trying to argue with him.
Tbh, I'm only really debating with him to procrastinate and because I'm stubborn. His whole refusal to watch the anime thing is bizarre, I can't imagine debating so vehemently about something you don't even watch.
Well, I hated the post so much I edited it. I'd still prefer people to be more reasonable about the series and stop drawing back to the original series like it was some gold standard, but people love to argue.
I admit I hold D&P to some kind of gold standard. That more recent episodes are failing that benchmark certainly indicates something. (Not that XY is bad, though.)
Perhaps this is rare for an admin to say, but I somehow find myself drawn to all those posts of yours backing up Diamond&Pearl. They're lengthy (perhaps to a fault, for some people) but being the avid reader of great points and discussion, I'm immersed into some of the things you've been posting about.
Hey Lizardo! Within the next week, I'm going to create a "Favorite Character" thread. I know a thread like that would belong in your General Character Discussion thread, but the favorite character thread is going to be used to determine something that I'm going to begin rolling out next month.
Just a heads up in case you're confused by the similar threads :D
