Ever since the hacking incident, people hardly post on yuku anymore. I've seen many sites that are honestly just knockoffs of AU, AVA, and the other AVA. Not meant to be an insult, but its a fact that those sites were the ones getting tons of posters, and now that they're gone, so is everything else. Quite a shame really, and according to Tigris, he actually met the hacker in person. It's a crazy man from Russia with way too much time on his hands, and no it was not WolverineClaws like it was once believed. Pretty much most of the original posters and some of the new posters now post at wildfact, and some of the younger posters post at proboards where its mostly debates about dinosaurs, and gathering more information on their favorite animals.
But this isn't my point. What I want to know is why on Earth do you people continue to debate and put so much time and effort to prove that either the lion or tiger wins in a fight? It is 2016 and hardly anyone comes on yuku anymore, and the people you wish to debate don't even come here anymore. I'm not putting you guys down, but seriously, why put in so much time and effort over two endangered cats killing each other? Starfox has been doing this since mid 2012, and some of you have been debating this even longer than that.
I have to ask this because you people aren't dumb. You have devoted hours into finding accounts and coming up with arguments to support your claim, but what is it for? Your opponents don't even debate this anymore. What's the gain out of this? To prove you're right? At Carnivora, the owner at least gets paid for people posting there (even though Taipan isn't exactly the best person), but you're not getting much out of it other than a bit of entertainment. My point is that with your mindsets, you can do more than just go around searching books and the internet for accounts of these cats killing each other. Haven't you people ever thought about working together and making ideas on how to save both of these cats from extinction? Why use such tenaciousness and dedication for such a waste of time? Why continue something so silly?
Debating can be fun, but time after time, the Lion vs Tiger debate has proven to be one of the most frustrating, tiresome, extremely long, and highly repetitive debate that gets both sides nowhere, and of course the inevitable flamewar happens after a few days or even minutes sometimes. Hell I remember several posters actually toying with the idea of fighting each other and threatening to show up at each others house on some bullshit over two cats fighting. This debate is literally like people talking politics who cannot come to some type of agreement. I'm not joking when I say that this debate has caused the most amount of anger I have ever seen in just about any debate with feminists vs anti-feminists coming in 2nd place barely stalemating dumber debates like Superman vs Goku.
I don't think I can stress this enough though. What's your gain out of all this?
