And lastly, I'm not anti-SM. I'm against stupidity. And no matter how
many times you play a serious person in voice-acting, that stupid show
you just done is going to be forever in your records.
Finally, if you can't take a joke, don't take it out on the comedians for
their attempt at laughing the bad times away. The world is a cruel place
you know, and we need all the laughter we can get.
## First of all, personally I didn't notice any attempt of belittling
## Misato's voice actress, or any hint of anti-SM. The original poster
## might have some strong opinion on the voice chosen by the voice
## actress to act Usagi, and perhaps sounding a little naive (sorry for
## word :p) in front of those who know the wide range of voice skilss
## the voice actresses have. Still I treated it as a harmless post,
## which can be reacted with a wink, a shrug, a smile, or a frown, but
## definitely not a shout or a fierce stare.
## Rich, if you could take a piece of advice, I would like to say that
## you could have put in a lot more smileys. :-) Yeah, some sense of
## humour. And try to use fewer words that bear strong tones.
## Remember the mail you sent in reply to my post on "EVA in HK"??
## You said "I found the above statement to be false". You may be right,
## but "false" implies a total negation, a complete disapproval, rejection
## And then when you asked me whether I lived in HK, it didn't sound to
## me like a joke, more like a challenge, a provokation. What a difference
## it would like if a smiley was put there, or some elaborations...
## I mean, it is good to make clear your opinion, but let's consider
## opinions and feelings of others. Try not to go all out like you want
## to grab the other person's neck and shake it. Act with restraint and
## talk tactfully. :-)
## I don't want to be seen as patronizing. But I learnt quite a lot
## from my years of experience of debating on the Internet in my student
## years. While people cannot hear your voice or see your face, what
## you write shows what kind of person you are. And misunderstanding and
## miscommunication are easy to take place under such circumstances.
