Top 10 Reasons Why TheTopTens Needs to Be Shut Down


The Top Ten

1 Admin's Hypersensitive Nature To Criticism

I kinda agree with this - Randomator

Might that explain why no more thumbs-down or dishonorable mentions?

2 There's No Sense Of Community Between Anyone Anymore

True - Randomator

3 All of the Good Users Left or Retired

Yeah unfortunately this is true. Even some of the good users who remain are barely active anymore - Randomator

Britgirl is still here - Userguy44

Well, you got to at least make room for new users who have potential... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Don't worry I will never leave thetoptens! - TinyToonsGirl45

4 The Rising Amount of Christians in The Community

Someone explain to me how this is a problem. - Randomator

Considering all the anti-Muslim prejudice and stereotyping of Muslims as terrorists despite radical terrorist groups only making up a small percentage of the world's Muslims when in reality a large majority are nonviolent, then yeah. I think it's safe to say that's the ONLY thing wrong with Christians. Otherwise, there is NOTHING wrong with Christians or any OTHER religion being represented on here. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 All Of This Site's Charm Is Gone
6 Can't "Thumbs Down" Comments Anymore


7 Politics Has Become Too Much Of An Issue

That's not exclusive to this site, though

Yeah, can't we just stop talking about politics all the time? It only divides us further. No need to start endless arguments that go nowhere and have visitors attack users over politics. This is why I rarely talk about politics nowadays on here. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

8 Web Design and Glitches are Still Common
9 Most People Are Inactive

I just lost a bit of interest to this site, but that doesn't mean I quit. - yamionthetrap

Yeah, I rarely visit TheTopTens, but that doesn't mean I want to terminate this account. I still think some Anti-Amour people would at least take a look and see what lists I have to offer. I pretty much came here (late) because of all of the Anti-Amourshipping lists and community, now I don't come here as much although I don't log in.

Yeah, there was a gap of 4 months b/w me and TheTopTens because I was so busy in college matters! But I'm now active & I'm regularly keeping comments and adding lists! But I'll never leave the site! - Victoryboy

10 Too Many Stupid Lists

*cough cough Letter lists, comparison lists - Randomator

The Contenders

11 It's Overrun with Sonic the Hedgehog and SpongeBob SquarePants Fanboys

You forgot Lego Movie/its spinoffs and Lion King/Lion Guard fanboys!

12 Good comments are constantly buried under dumb ones

Like how perfectly valid and actually well-worded criticisms against Zootopia keep getting buried under cries from social justice nutters of how wonderful and important this movie is?

13 No New Inside Jokes In Between Users

When I joined this site, there were users like darthvadern, Britgirl, christangrant etc., but I rarely see them now! - Victoryboy

14 People Are Being Racist Towards Other Races, Like Making A List Of How “Bad” Indian People Are
15 It's the Worst Website Ever

Second only to Tumblr

Actually, that's Tumblr, but this site's still pretty bad.

Worse than Buzzfeed?

No, that would be Tumblr, followed closely by Upworthy and Buzzfeed. But this site is in fourth place for worst ever.

16 Too Much Spam Voting
17 Satire is Non-Existent
18 Troll Users are Joining Left and Right

Depends. Some are bad, others are okay. - Userguy44

And they aren’t even good - Randomator

It's still a major problem, unfortunately. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

19 People Getting Far Too Worked Up Over Fictional Characters

Not only was (is? ) there that Elsa fan, but someone's overly defensive of Bayonetta, too. And those two are just for starters.

20 Death Threats

Someone or multiple people keep posting the comment "this is why bleach exists". Translation: go DRINK bleach.

I'm seeing far too much "Whoever [added list item/made comment] should go die! " around here.

21 Too many users acting like they own the place/have any admin privileges
22 Too Much Opinion Bashing

Got this a few times from a visitor. No words for how pointless and immature it is. - Userguy44

23 Repeat List Items are Not Deleted

Also *objectively* incorrect items aren't deleted. For example, I resent Bayonetta's presence in "Smash Bros." too but she doesn't need to be on the "Overrated Brawl Characters" list since she (fortunately) wasn't in that one.

It's not that they're not getting deleted fast enough, they're not getting deleted at all. Same with any other "factual errors" that get reported. Why even give us the option of reporting these things if they're never going to get fixed?

Nor are irrelevant list items, like "Frozen" on an overrated VIDEO GAMES list.

24 Too Many Votes are Made Solely to Argue

You have to vote to comment, and often I've noticed the top items are riddled with comments that are just two people arguing back and forth or the same person commenting repeatedly on how "right" they are/how "wrong" anyone or everyone else is. Ergo, the items only got so high on the list *because* people voted to make those comments.

Case in point: a Snape fanbrat keeps stalking the Top Ten Worst Fictional Canon Couples list and voting for Snily (their darling Saint Severus paired with Harry Potter's mother) just to call those who call out Snape's flaws "monsters" or "bigoted" yet swears they don't actually ship the pairing. Happy though I may be about how reasonably high this pairing is on that list, that's just pathetic.

25 It's Become an Echo Chamber
26 The Waluigi Haters Overreact to the Fanbase

Remember when this was a thing? - Randomator

27 It's Overrun with Princess Peach and Frozen Haters

And "Fire Emblem" haters

Yeah yeah, entitled to opinion, blah blah blah. But hating, and expressing said hate at every opportunity and creating opportunities when there are none, that particular character and that particular movie (as well as anything to do with that movie) has practically become a requirement here. So much for being entitled to opinion.

28 It's Overrun with Fortnite Arguments

Hate arguments. - Userguy44

29 Awful Community

That’s assuming there’s actually a community - Randomator

30 More Users are Supporting Trolls and Trolling
