[Mod announcement] Dubs vs Subs  
Alright, just popping in to say: knock it off with the dub bashing, sub bashing, and/or manga-anime in general bashing. We just had an angry (now deleted) goodbye post from an (ex) member, and honestly, the bashing just gives me a headache. It's not productive, and it annoys and/or hurts people, 'kay?

If you see any dub, sub, anime or manga bashing - and I don't mean expressing an opinion like 'the anime's okay, but I prefer the manga for xxx reasons,' I mean 'The dub sucks! I don't know why people like it' type-things? Contact one of the mods. If you don't want to contact us through LJ, my email address is kaltia at gmail.com, and I'm a nerd who checks it at least every fifteen minutes. Email me any links and let me or the other mods take care of it; don't let it wind you up to the point where you feel you have no choice but to post a 'goodbye, cruel community!' note.

Anybody caught being a dick and bashing stuff will get a warning their heads flushed down the toilet from us LJ Nazis mods, 'kay? Three warnings and you're out, and we won't miss you. We might celebrate. There may even be party poppers and vodka, although if there is I ain't footing the cleaning bill.

Play nice.

Just as a note, it would be appreciated if the community advertisments in this community for the rangers, brigades, lesbian orgies or whatever they are for the dub actors were... uh.. not there. The advertisments clog my FL and uh... well, they're advertisments for a... dub-war for.. favorite voice actor or something... not really FMA whatever...

That'd be cool.

We as the moderators do not restrict post content unless it violates one or more of the community rules. Unless you can provide links to the posts you are referring to and point to which rules they violate, there's nothing we can do.

Mod Post - regarding off-topic posts
We would like to take this chance to attempt to define what is and isn't regarded as off-topic. These points are, of course, presently open for discussion.

b). Posts that rely solely on fandom injokes.

I can't see anything wrong with the formation of fanclubs for voice actors, but you're right, they can keep their rivalry off fm_a. I'll talk to the other mods and see what can be done.
