TMNT fans outside of this forum are wayyyyy more rude, in my experience. I can't tell you how many times I'd see absolute rage-fests from people on the official TMNT's Facebook page posts. They were always casuals, though. It's the casual fans who are truly assholes. When we're dicks it's because of passion, whereas they, well, I don't really know where their anger comes from. You know the type, the ones who feel entitled to seeing characters like Bebop & Rocksteady in iterations that they don't even watch in the first place, who think any version that isn't Fred Wolf's is a "gay spin-off", etc. People who say stuff like "Ralph" & "Master Shredder".

It's because they are PAID PROTESTERS.

Ugh tell me about it. They claim to love the TMNT so much and yet barely even remember the FW series. I remember once a few people in another forum saying that only a teenager would prefer the 2k3 series to the FW series and I told them that the 2k3 series had story arcs and more action than the FW series did but ofc they did not listen to me. The thing is, I DO like FW Turtles, but it's kinda sad that it's set the standard for what the TMNT should be in the eyes of most people.

I don't consider those people fans. They don't count.

You don't see people getting banned or given warnings out of the blue here like in many other places. It's not an anarchy but not a dictatorship either.
Are there really mods here?

Jester's a mod, and he's pretty cool. Every once in a while the other ones will pop out of the shadows and, like, get mad about self-censored swear words...

I've lurked around for a while and I must say I think the forum has gotten more jerkish. Maybe it was the Bay movies. Seems like many people who had thoughtful things to say have given up and moved on.

You would be correct. Not many survived the war on Platinum Dunes...

Recently I've learned to quit bellyaching over the people here who dislike me and just focus on those who actually care what I have to say. It used to bother me a lot when I'd get into an argument and try to make amends with the person (even in private), only to have it blow up in my face, which then would get me extremely riled up.

It's like the saying goes: Haters Gonna Hate. That being said...

Maybe it's just me, but I've found fans of the 2003 series to be pretty bad (and I say that as a fan of the 2003 series). Many of them seem to look down on fans of the other versions.

Then again, I've also heard the same from the Fred Wolf one. There's a subsection of people who only watch that cartoon and call themselves 'purists'. I wish I was joking.

Conversely, fans of the Bay movies and the Nick show seem to be fairly chilled, even if they don't show interest in other adaptations, they're cool with the fact that other people like them.

.
None of those people are actual TMNT fans though. They're casuals who only briefly remember TMNT from their childhood and have no idea about the franchise overall.

I kind of think the Mirage purists are the rudest.

I like Mirage best too, but have to appreciate what got me into the franchise to begin with (Fred Wolf and live action movies), what re-ignited my interest (2003 series and, believe it or not, Volume 4), and any other honest attempts at re-imagining the series.

There aren't many Mirage purists around though. Andrew and maybe a few other people who rarely show up here are the only ones. In fact I can barely think of any Mirage purists in the 15+ years I've been on this forum.
