I had to spend whole class periods last year trying to explain that the furry fandom is not a fetish.....(I know that is the wrong term, it just goes to show how much they know about the subject)

so yea...the stuff like the stupid encyclopedia dramatica article is nothing compared to the abuse I have taken in-person.

Uhm being a furry doesn't -mean- you have to yiff or anything.

The fandom is more people who think anthro characters are cool...Like people who likes Anime thinks anime chars are cool.

Yes... unfortunatly some people cant get thier heads out of thier... i think you know how that sentance ends... and realise that if someone is part of a group(ie. furry) that not all those people are alike...

I agree with Zethy here.

Because someone is a furry doesn't mean he is a yiffer or anything.

A furry is just a man who's a fan of anthro-characters..It's like people who's fan of anime's. I do not see everyone bash them because they got some anime-pr0n in their group, it's unfair!

I'll start an anime-hate group...Everyone who loves Naruto is a Narutard and they are some anime-f***ers!

Well not -just- like. We've got more sub-sects, the lifestylers and such.
But really, on some parts we seem to be a little deeper than the Anime fandom.
And also, while we may merge at times, the other one does seem to have much more acceptance.

Because they are the "cool" ones. Gods forbid we like anthro-characters and they like overpowered god-like beings.

Hey, I don't think we should stereotype them.
Take pride in the fact that we accept them, and can understand something simple without making a big silly deal out of it.

I didn't stereo-type them. I simply said how they thought and it's dumb...I have nothing against Anime but if we bring up hate, let us bring up all dumb things they like...

Ever tried hitting them?

Some are..amusing, others irritating.

it depends.

However, I normally encounter them in Second Life, which means that all I have to do is mute them, and sim-ban them from Unreal.

Of course, at times, I can't resist having a bit of fun with them.. messing with their heads. :fox-:P:

Not everyone from 4chan hates furries. In fact I have a good friend who is a \b\tard and he's perfectly fine with us.

Anyways, I think that some of the reasons that they hate us is because they either don't understand us, was in a bad situation with one, or they just want to attack something; they know a lot of us will fight them back and to some it's the fun of seeing us get frustrated.

For every /b/tard that is ok with furries, or is even furry themselves, there are a dozen or more who see furs as simply a chance to attack.  They've launched full-scale raids against this site twice now, and we have a very effective method of dealing with them:  Do what's necessary to contain the attack behind the scenes, without giving them any public attention whatsoever.  Which is why, if you're not a staff member, you'll probably never know about a *chan raid on this site.  It's not because we don't trust y'all or anything, but the raiders one and only goal is to get attention of some sort.  By keeping their attacks secret from you guys, and staying out of their threads during the raid, we deny them from acheiving their goal in any way, and they invariably give up.

Last year, at about this time of year, they launched a massive raid against us that had the site's staff working around the clock to keep things under control, and aside from the initial raider who made an inflammatory post, and the two existing members who gave us advance warning, no one knew what was going on.  A few weeks ago, they made a second attempt, and they actually caused some mayhem.  For those who didn't see it, we had to close the site for a half-hour while I cleaned up the gory image posts, and when we thought it was over, they snuck in again and harvested a massive number of email accounts.  But, the bulk of the attack was thwarted, and they only did as much as they did because unlike last time, we had no advance warning.

Why am I posting this, aside from its relevancy to the topic at hand?  Because I want anyone who even considers defending that group of idiots to know this:  Every troll and attacker this site has ever had has been in some way affiliated with /b/, and the fact that these attacks haven't been publicized does not mean that they didn't happen.  It just means that we went to great lengths to keep the attacks contained, for the purpose of keeping the tards from declaring any sort of victory.  During last years attack, when I wasn't working or sleeping, I was at my computer watching over the site for over two solid weeks.  I even gave out my home phone and cellphone numbers to the other staff members, in case a situation developed while I wasn't there.  It was not an effortless victory.

Anyway, that's my position on this subject.  So if I seem a bit bitter toward any /b/ references, now you know why.  I consider them the closest thing we have to an organized enemy.

Sorry if what I said came off in a bad way, but I wasn't defending the group or their actions, in fact, I've disliked all I've met besides my one friend, I was just mentioning that there are always exceptions. I know for a fact that their behavior is stupid. I have been attacked by some of them before, and I agree with what you said about them being enemies, I just don't like characterizing every single person that if they belong to a certain group they have to act a certain way.

Once again, I apologize if what I wrote angered you in any way.
