A killzone for butthurt toxic fanboys with a whole new level for opinion disrespecting…

TheTopTens is a countdown website where various topics are discussed. This page and this list pretty much explains why TheTopTens sucks hard.

Why It's Rotten

  1. A major issue with TheTopTens is that the countdown lists are made and voted by random users (including anonymous users) instead of professional critics. This leads to many ludicrous claims (especially those revolved around rip-offs), such as:
    • The Wii U is "a Wii knock-off" (both are made by Nintendo).
    • Auto B. Good is "a rip-off of Pixar's Cars" (the former was released in 1998, 8 years before Cars so that's a really pointless reason to say that).
    • LJN was the second worst video game developer of all time (LJN was actually a publisher like Electronic Arts and Activision).
    • Doug Walker and TheMysteriousMrEnter are both Social Justice Warriors (which is very false; both are against censorship and political correctness).
    • Among the contenders of the Best Video Games of 2016 list is Hitman: Blood Money, which actually came out in 2006, 10 years earlier.
  2. The site is infested with toxic fanboys, most notably those of classic SpongeBob, metal music, Sonic the Hedgehog (especially classic era fans), Nintendo, Disney, and to some extent by some, Vyond.
    • Most of them also pander towards nostalgia or SJW beliefs. Although to a lesser extent, some are even Anti-GamerGate.
    • Most of them cannot handle criticism or respect opinions, either.
  3. The hatedoms on the site can be just as toxic as the fandoms, and there are plenty of them (PewdDiePie, Donald Trump, Justin Bieber (they do target others too but Justin Bieber is the main victim out of them all), Cartoon Network, Teen Titans Go!, "baby" shows, especially Dora the Explorer and Caillou, One Direction, The Loud House, Ariana Grande, Michael Jackson etc.) While this doesn't sound bad since everybody has an opinion, many lists are based on personal opinions instead of actual reasons.
  4. Some users will go as far as voicing their desire to assassinate celebrities they hate (i.e. Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna etc.).
    • Some users celebrate the deaths of the celebrities they hate like when some users made of XXXTentaction's death in 2018.
  5. Some of the lists they made are highly biased and notably inaccurate, even to "public list" standards. And lists that contain Dead-disrespecting.
    • In their All-Time Worst People In History list, Donald Trump and Justin Bieber are considered worse than Benito Mussolini and Ivan the Terrible. How can a controversial president or a bad singer be worse than dictators and tyrants?!
    • In the Worst Things Ever list, Justin Bieber is considered worse than Adolf Hitler, hell, Racism and the 9/11 attacks. Singing terrible songs is not even close to being worse than killing six million Jews, burning in hell, being extremely racist to ethnic groups or even "the worst act of terrorism in modern history".
    • In the Most Overrated Singers list, they added artists that are dead and aren't here to defend themselves such as Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain, Aaliyah etc. It seems that these jerks have no respect for the dead.
    • In fact, Justin Bieber is number 1 on every worst list. Everything, his songs, movies and even himself are number 1 on every worst singer and movies lists despite the fact that there are worse singers, movies and songs than his.
  6. Besides being biased and inaccurate, some of the countdown lists are simply idiotic and disgusting, like Top Ten Users of TheTopTens With the Stinkiest Farts, Most Smelly Animal Poos and Top Ten Reasons Why Farts are Better Than Facebook (and no, these aren't Buzzfeed titles). There are also outright aggressive lists such as Top 10 Reasons Why Blaze the Cat Haters Should Go to Prison, and Top 10 Reasons Why Adolf Hitler Is Better Than Justin Bieber.
  7. Some users like to label too many things as overrated. Even Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), considered by many as one of the biggest failures in video game history, is called "overrated" by some. Basically anything that is liked or isn't universally hated is deemed "overrated."
  8. When there isn't hate, there's circlejerking. (DON'T LOOK THAT UP)
  9. There are some users who trash particular things for very idiotic reasons:
    • Some users will trash the Ferrari LaFerrari just because its top speed isn't as high as cars like the Koenigsegg Agera R (a car built for breaking production speed records).
    • Many users hate things with toxic fanbases just because of their fanbases and nothing else.
  10. Lots of troll users, such as KoolGuy2218. And because you can vote anonymously, you can get away with spam trolling and a lot of the time those voters are worse than the users themselves.
  11. Lists like Most Hated Countries are filled with xenophobic comments that upset some Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, Turkish, South Korean, among other people. Even worse, the administrator does nothing about it.
    • Also, users like kim1001 send death threats to people who like South Korea.
  12. There are sexist lists like "Reasons To Hate Boys" and "Reasons To Hate Girls".
    1. There are also offensive lists like "Ten Worst Religions", which is filled with hate comments towards Islam and Christianity.
  13. There are some users from India who keep using bots to submit votes in lists like Greatest People, and yet the admin does nothing about it.
    • The admin also claims that it's a surge in traffic of real people for some reason [1].
  14. The website is poorly scripted and filled with bugs. You can easily follow yourself and edit other people's comments if you know enough about web programming. It is also vulnerable to spam voting, comments and likes.
  15. A user named "Piplup" disrespects opinions, and made a list about why child abuse should be legal. She is also very sexist, and disrespects autistic people. She gives the Pokémon a bad name. She's also one of those people who say "If you don't like it, go away."
  16. Another user named NickebackLinkinPark4Eva is the biggest example of users who wish death. He made a list of Top 10 Celebrities Who Deserved to Die in 2018 in which not only did he wish slow and painful death on celebrities he hates (e.g. Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber) but he also went too far celebrating the death of Stephen Hawking, Stephen Hillenburg, Stan Lee and XXXTentaction just because he found their work or discoveries "overrated". JUST BECAUSE YOU FIND SOMETHING OVERRATED IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULD WISH DEATH ON THEIR CREATORS!!!
  17. You can get suspended unfairly for very stupid reasons.
  18. A number of lists have been ruined by trolls. One especially notorious example is "Top Ten Episodes That Should Be Created In Season 10 of SpongeBob SquarePants". It started out as a somewhat neat list for SpongeBob episode ideas before trolls discovered it and proceeded to flood the list with episodes and episode plots containing content that would be inappropriate for SpongeBob such as assault and murder (SpongeBob Assassinates JFK), poop and pee (Different Way, which involves SpongeBob peeing into Sandy's mouth), nonsensical crossover episodes (Caillou Meets Spongebob), sex (Spandy Day), episodes with absurd lengths (Sandy Moans, which goes on for ONE YEAR), ripoffs or combinations of bad SpongeBob episodes (Two Pals for Gary, Are You Whatever Happened to A Pal for Gary's One Coarse Fired Doofus Face Splinter with Sandy's Little Yellow Baby Vision Buddies in the Wringer?), and even ideas that have nothing to do with SpongeBob (A Honey Badger Eats Caillou's Head).
    • What's ironic is that none of the episode ideas actually got made for season 10 of SpongeBob, likely because Nickelodeon doesn't accept unsolicited episode/script ideas, thus rendering the list ultimately pointless.
    • Predictably, some of the more immature users ended up using the "Top Ten Episodes That Should Be Created In ((season X of) series)" format to list fictitious episodes of shows like Teen Titans Go! and Dora the Explorer that involve the cast being beaten up, humiliated, or killed. Some of the ideas on those lists are taken directly from the Season 10 list.
  19. Many users cannot handle criticism. When one user wrote a rant on the website, they responded with things like "Get out weakling!" and "Then what are you doing on here?".
  20. The character fandoms in the site are no better than the hatedoms, if not, much worse, a good example of this are fanboys and fangirls of Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls, who are known for treating her like she was perfect (not realizing she can be unlikable at times), bashing on Rainbow Dash 24/7, and even thinking she would beat characters like Donald Duck, Mario, Sonic and even Kirby.
  21. The most popular list on the site "Music Artists You'd Like to Perform at the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremonies" is extremely flawed in many ways:
    1. First, the comments are way to over-liked and some entries like Jackie Evancho, Dimash Kudaibergen etc are bot-voted.
    2. 2012 Olympics are long gone and yet a lot of people are still voting and liking already overliked comments. The admin does nothing about it.
    3. Majority of the entries on the Top 10 are taken over by Asian artists and British singers aren't even on Top 50. The topic is London Olympics for crying out loud. Besides, what do BTS, Dimash Kaudaibergen and other ones on the list have to do with London Olympics?
    4. The popularity of that list spawned several spin-offs like: "Music Artists You'd like to see Perform at the 2018 Olympics Opening Ceremonies", "Music Artists You'd Like to Perform at the 2022 Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremonies" etc.
    5. To make matter worse, users want Hatsune Miku, a fictional character to perform as well and the comments have over 10,000 likes.
  22. The lists often have the same thing appearing more than once in the top ten, causing not little confusion among the users and readers.
  23. The updates on the site are no better.
  24. Some drama often happens on that site.
  25. Some users claim that cyberbullying isn't real and that is just mean words on a screen when some of the victims of cyberbullying can commit suicide.
  26. When the users are commenting on something (shows, games, songs etc.) they don’t like, they attack basically everything related to it such as the creators, actors, fanbases by making abusive, offensive and toxic sentences like “Black death plague and ISIS is zillion better than this”, “Only idiots enjoy it” ... and they call these types of statements “opinions”.
  27. The admin is incredibly lazy. He doesn't take down hate lists such as Most Hated Countries. The only reason why he doesn't delete lists is because he wants users to keep comments that they made.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The ability to make your own Top 10 lists is a solid idea on paper, but poorly executed.
  2. There are some great users who actually can respect opinions like htoutlaws2012, PositronWildHawk, Britgirl etc. Sadly most of them left the site already or aren't very active.
  3. You can remix your list, which is a good thing because you can put things you rather that deserve #1. The more detailed your remix is, the higher your remix is in the front page.
  4. You can be entitled to your own opinion.
  5. There are a number of decent and good lists still on the site.

I'd probably expect it to be the Tokyo one, since Vocaloid is a Japanese software (even though it features English, Chinese, Korean and Spanish singers)
