Most maddening thing in the furry fandom?

You're putting on a show. And it stars, "You".

Good luck with that, Arshes. *shrugs*
So I don't minimize the importance of what I've had to say by responding to your own personal lecture and attempt at misdirection with the virtues of why it is important to be excessively fearful of stepping outside of most normative boundaries, as your high-fiving friend would agree with, I'll simply reiterate that if you're an adult, and you can't handle adult conversations, than maybe you should avoid places where others are willing to take on the responsibility.

Fair? I think so. Enjoy the company of your pal. I'm sure he'll make for intriguing conversation.
If you're an adult you'd actually address my statements instead of resorting to condescending and passive aggressive remarks to prove that you're on some moral high ground.

Second most maddening thing in fandom:

White Knights. ;)

Well ...

What is it? 8)

You implied there was one! ;)
I'll humour you

If you can't pick up on really basic social cues of what's appropriate etiquette for a given situation, then not everyone's going to accommodate for you if you repeatedly overstep people's boundaries.

As a side note: it has nothing to do with being "fearful" of stepping out of some norm but you know, what's stated above.

The lack of creativity of 'sonas.

We don't need any more 'loner, but nice when you get to know them,' raver foxes/wolves plz. Give me a seahorse-sona NOW. Or at least a turkey vulture. Anything to mix things up. There are so many species out there.
Pshh, didn't you know the fandom is only foxes and wolves? Everything else is just make believe, hah! A sloth? What's that? A bat? How about a flying fox! Grrrrrr u fucks!!

Ahem.

Ah shit, I just stepped into the middle of a shark fight.

No, it does.

So, allow me to explain: it's about enforcing regular normative values on total and complete strangers, by total and complete strangers, because parts of the fandom are "scary".

EDIT: This should do.

Please tell me you didn’t say that. Please, please, please for the love of God let this be a joke.
I honestly doubt it's a joke.

You know what else annoys me about the fandom? Is that assholes like this feel the need to keep up a creative welcome, like it's going to win them some popularity points, or something.

Wait...

Is honestly confused by life.
>_> well i have a owl soul not a human soul. and another thing i hate is when anyone has power where they shouldent. so if dragoneer really was the leader id assassinate him :3
I can't tell when you're serious or when you're joking.

I've watched enough ancient aliens to know that you're the long-thought-dead 17th prophet of Egypt's Mesuda. You started this. You brought the aliens here. YOU have to fix this. You must go back to your home planet and leave humanity to destroy it's own self with time.
The worse thing in the fandom is the attention seekers. Exhibition A is on show.
Me or him?
I hope it's me! That's +1 attention right there! :3c
The self loathers.

Oh shush. You know furries are disgusting. I mean, look at the awful fetishes this fandom has created..
Oh man, and we're also so fucking stupid and naive. "Every furry is nice QQQQQQQQQQQ" obviously if that's how some furry acts that means I'm no better.

JEEZ XoPachi, you know deep down you just despise yourself. You hippo >:c

I have a very strong dislike when the people here forget their roots. Our childhood, that is what affiliates us with the fandom, even though we didn't understand it to be under this name. We called it cartoons or toys.
 
Um... holy shit.
Noah, I'm not gonna harass you needlessly like a few others, but holy shit dude. Don't go around saying you'd assassinate someone by name. Especially not the forum owner. Besides, I think that's considered a callout which is against the rules. I mean...he still posts here. Just letting you know because you clearly didn't.
Start watching what it is you say.

For me, it's the uber-lifestylers, since every fandom needs it's otaku. Other things: the fact the fandom changed from a fetishized sci-fi/fantasy fandom (like all geek fandoms) to a penis fetish with sci-fi/fantasy aspects. The other fetishes scare me too. The asspats suck. And most of all, it's the overreactions to any perceived "threats" and the inability to separate furry from daily life, going into gory details about their fetishes. Huh this all sounds familiar...maybe nothing, but I don't know.

Furry Fandom, how do you madden me? Let me count the ways.

1. The amount of entitled people who think that just because people in the fandom know how to draw, they should draw them and for free.
Latest example of this I have seen? Someone asking for a 24 minute-long animation for free and getting offended when people told them they might want to consider saving up a budget.
> See also: begging for art, requesting when no requests are being offered and price-wanking when fandom-prices are already insultingly cheap in most cases.

2. Lack of respect for people's personal boundaries.
Just because someone drew a pin-up doesn't mean you get to state how many loads you blew while looking at the picture. "This looks very sexy." is OK. "OH MURR I CAME" is not and I hate the fact that for some people it just won't sink in that this is not acceptable behaviour, especially when people go out of their way to mention in the image-description that creepy comments are not welcome.

3. Tied to point 2: the fetishes, some of them being pretty damn disturbing. You are free to like what you like, draw what you like and fav what you like.
But don't take what you like and start shoving it down people's throats because you will be seen (and then shunned) for being "that guy/girl/..it". Also, don't identify yourself on the forums as "That person who likes wearing diapers and is really into porn, porn and more porn" (just an example). You wouldn't introduce yourself like that in real life, why the hell would you do this online?

There are more things, but these are the three things that tend to rub me the wrong way the most.

I'll give you +1 attention Wither :)

We should consider turning this thread into a page that flashes up as people register on FA, like a terms of condition page. But you can't continue unless you actually read it all.
