Oh, I forgot we have users after the Whiskey Media Sale Out. During Anime Vice's birth, this site used to be part of a family of sites that caters to these main interests: Comic Books, Video Games, Anime, TV and Movies, and Technology.
Didn't mean to comment on those sites. Was about to edit them out. You caught me. I still hold some grudges, but I try to be open minded and forget the past.
Those misconceptions came from outside communities, not just Comic Vine and Giant Bomb sites, that Anime Vice was a dead site. The black sheep in the Whiskey Media family. Though, people tend to use red haired child, but I don't understand the reference or like using it since it feels racist.
During the closure of Screened, a lot of folks were making ill comment about Anime Vice and Screened rather than thanking and praising Final Dasa, Acura Max, Callum, MrMazz, CherryBomb, and countless others for doing the best they can in maintaining Screened. These old misconceptions kept coming back from the dead. I appreciate FinalDasa, Hailinel, Turamblar, and others defending the two sites and correcting them. I feel none of our comments change their views.

Wheaton's Law applies to games but everything fans are interested in.
All of the things that make us weird and strange in the real world.
Those things that people tease us for loving.
Those things that we seem to care about more than anyone else at work and school.
Those things make us who we are.
And when we are at PAX, we don’t have to hide them, or explain them, or justify them to anyone.
We have come here this weekend because just playing games isn’t nearly as fun as playing them together, surrounded by thousands of people who love them just as much as we do.
