So apparently, MAL was being DDOSed after staff mass-purged a ton of fake accounts that were used to upvote the recent Ishuzoku Reviewers.
Is is just me or is this a new level of insane? People hating something is one thing but doing harm because you aren’t allowed to give a show you like an unfair rating advantage? Nope, I don’t get it.
Hell, I enjoy Ishuzoku Reviewers. It’s a funny and creative show. But even if this was my favourite anime in all eternity, I wouldn’t see the need to bring down an internet site because it doesn’t let me vote for it a million times. Some people really need a life or something.
Oh yeah. I haven’t looked into the whole mess enough to be able to confirm or deny this, but apparently, a (or several) YouTuber actually rallied people to do this? Way to use your influence for good, guys. Sigh.
As for me, I’ll be over here, being part of small, non-toxic communities that – hopefully – don’t do shit like this 😐
