    Default Completely uncalled for...

    Wow... Dattebayo had sunk to a new low.

    If you've seen ep. 122....



    That's totally rude in my opinion.

    This is what he meant:

    The Joke
    "Statistically, there is a 33% chance DB will have one less download due to the Vtech massacre."

    The Explanation
    timecop (the subber who's responsible for the message), is saying that there is a 33% chance that the Vtech Gunman was a part of the Dattebayo Fansubs viewer community or the anime fansubs viewer community, in general. At the same time, he implies that 1 in 3 members of this community are just as psychotic and immoral as the Vtech Gunman.
    Well.. DB did release an apology... but I think it's half-hearted. They didn't fire timecop or anything, so that's why I think it's a fake apology. >_<

    Why would he released an apology when what he's doing he's not even legal??? There is no such thing as Damage control as he's doing fan-subs for free and wouldn't care less about who watches/download them or not.

    whatever...



    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    I didn't get it at all...

    All the VT jokes on 4chan must have desensitized me...

    I thought it was funny, their joke apology doubly so. Seriously, they're the GNAA, what do you expect?

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,
    how do your powers grow?

    is saying that there is a 33&#37; chance that the Vtech Gunman was a part of the Dattebayo Fansubs viewer community or the anime fansubs viewer community, in general. At the same time, he implies that 1 in 3 members of this community are just as psychotic and immoral as the Vtech Gunman.
    I doub't that he meant that.
    33% isn't a number that was mathematicaly archieved..

    33 is the number of deaths.
    (I'm sure you said: but were 32! You forgot the shooter.. so 33! he died too)
    So its very likely one watched DB fansub.Hence the phrase.
    Its not about the shooter itself, simply that one person there might watched DB fansubs.

    What I'd say bad is that from that message I get that DB is a Viewer Counter Whores, concerned more with numbers (but we all know they are.. "served over xxxxx? c'mon")

    I don't see how thats "offensive", it might be slight unconfortable for the 33 families involved in the case.

    Seriously, I don't study there, I don't know anyone there, heck I don't even live near there, We got to keep the perspective, thats isn't something I'm going to expect happening again.
    I do feel sorry to all relatives and families that got the jackpot of statistics there of some unforseen horrible acident. But unfortunatelly its more probable for you to die sliping and falling on your bathtub, or plane crash into your home.

    Unless you really have a relative there that died, I don't see the point of stressing over it. Nor dismissing the damn raw provider -.- I want my bleach/naruto/Pitagoras.

    Now if you are randomly pissed with nothing to do with the VTech Shooting:
    Please mourn also for:

    Titanic Express massacre
    The Simele massacre
    Chinese massacre of 1871
    I'm not up to start listing every damn genocide out there, google is out there, just search.

    Why? they were people too, weren't they? VTech people aren't any more special. (for me at least, but the same I'd apply for the people that also died on thoses genocides) I'm indifferent

    anyway, what's the point of apologizing if the end result will be you being fired ?

    the joke was not very nice, but as someone else said there are far worse ones on 4chan or other websites... ^^

    That would be a 1 in 33 (~3%) chance, not a 33% chance.

    In any case, the caption in the video doesn't make sense in the first place, it's too ambiguous to pick what he meant. It's insensitive to try and make a joke about that particular subject though...
