But... but then he went on and said 'a sensation which most people who spend their day at home watching anime will rarely ever taste.'
Not that I was personally offended or whatever anyway, but yeah.
Is there anything wrong with that statement, besides it being true...? :3
No but seriously, besides these guys I mentioned, I have known people who do actually waste most of their social life away by browsing the internet. They're not even otaku's, just internet addicts. Some were, and still are addicted to MMO's. Others simply love the internet in general because they seem to get a feeling of satisfaction acting badass on a forum board, hiding their insecurities and completely changing personality on the net. Unfortunately, those are not stereotypes. People actually do that. And especially nowadays, people with various insecurities DON'T HAVE TO try and fit into society anymore. They can simply go back home and be whoever they want to be on the net. Mind you, that's still social interaction. But not necessarily the kind that would get you much action with the girls, if you know what I mean. Lawls. And sorry if that sounds mean, but it's the truth. <3
And by no means am I saying that all free huggers are like that. As I said, I don't mind free hugs at all. I even enjoy them sometimes, some people just give out that sweetness which can make your day brighter.
I just find it creepy that some people DO go around hugging people for other less innocent intents... Bleh. :s
But yeah, no one's trying to discourage free hugging (except from random glompers, of course), or to kill the expo enthusiasm! The expo is still an amazing event, otherwise it wouldn't have as many attendees and we wouldn't be discussing it on these boards right now. ;3
