That's the first time I've seen scums used. Usually it's just scum.

Scum is used for the plural usually.

Saying scums is like saying deers.

I am referring to gaijin people, not gaijin foam.

Your logic is essentially "I have always been doing it wrong, so it must be right".

Can you even read?

Your sources are not even in agreement.

One says "C and U", the other says "mass noun".

I don't think food knows what a mass noun is or knows what "C and U" means.

I'll put it this way a "group of scum" or "you people are scum" is correct. Going "there are scums over there" is wrong.

Well if all you see is one convention, and then compare it to 2chan, you're going to end up with weird results.

They don't know what's going on this side of the ocean because they don't bother reading about what you think.

They imagined fans in the West are pleasant children who appreciate their artistic merit, little do they know white neckbeards are the same as Azn neckbeards.

This place seems pretty nice. I haven't gone to conventions or frequent other forums, so I can only judge on a case by case basis.

^That would be true, social awkwardness and pettiness probably isn't going to change so drastically due to nationality.

You haven't been to fanfic.

You need to master the art of Internet mutual masturbation to survive there.

Hugboxing is something that can only be limited, never eradicated.

Some posts are terrible, but it gets evened out.

We should not perpetuate the norm of Neckbeards.

I will start a petition for more Saber merchandise, so when it happens me and 500 jackasses can think we contributed something to the fandom.

Like they care what you think.

They are making more Sabre merchandises anyways.

Look for that picture of the dude with several display-cases-ful of Sabre merchandises.

He was comparing American convention goers to 2chan or something, not exactly a fair comparison. Comparing /a/ to 2chan would have been fairer.

Sounds like he spoke about it some. What did he say in addition to what we've already heard?
