    What ARE the most generally accepted interests on the internet?

    This is a question that has bugged me for a long time. Ever since I started to watch anime back before it was "ok". Whether your an otaku a furry, brony, or trekkie, etc. There are many different subcultures that may not fly with a large group of people.

    Certain video-games and films are taboo when compared to others. Lets take Namco's Tales of.... series and compare it to say CoD. Or the positive comments on GW2 where as WoW gets ridiculed for being an industry destroyer.

    It seems like there is a generic type of lifestyle that the internet fully accepts. Is this true? And if so what is the most accepted form of living on the internet and mainstream society? Which style gets the least amount of hate comments?

    Or is this all apparent with every single interest group and lifestyle

    My little pony is a way of life not a mere animation. Anyone who disagrees should be sentenced to death.

    Cosplay seems to be something most of the "geek"-community can get behind. Steampunk is another.
    But that doesn't really answer your question. I think "nerd" or "geek"-community has watered down somewhat, to the point that find a common interest is hard. Maybe space-travel and science of all kinds.

    As a rule, I try to act on the internet as I would in real life. If I have offended you, feel free to point it out. Unless I meant to offend you, I will probably apologize.

    Interests are just opinions. You can't ask 'what is the most accepted'. That's like asking what the best religion is.

    Everyone has opinions, and for every person, there is another person who will disagree.

    The internet is a giant bandwagon. Whatever the new emerging trend is, the rest of the internet will jump on it without question or reason, then once that trend is too mainstream, everyone hates it instantly.

    The funny thing is you'd expect me to have to deal with more ridicule IRL for liking different things from the norm. However this is not the case for me as the internet seems far more rampant than people you walk by on the streets. You would expect vice-verse

    This world is full of strange twisted individuals. That can't seem to look passed there rose colored glasses. It is quite interesting imo.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Which is odd. I mean, I know people love cats, but you wonder why it wasn't dogs, or birds. On that note, what interests me the most is the origin of these things.

    I can agree with this. Anything with cute little animals doing funny/cute things.

    Reminds of that episode of SP. With the school news. (Society may be high on cough syrup)

    Cats and porn

    I would say that almost on the net seems to like Lesbians not matter what...

    Liking cats and dogs; a lot of people obviously accept porn; images of girls almost naked is fully accepted.

    What I think that most people don't accept are people that like PETA, some kinds of anime, the pony show, pictures of guys almost naked, people typing stuff that no one cares on facebook and other social networks, religious and homosexual propaganda( a lot of people don't like this) and some atheist propaganda too sometimes, I have seen it.

    There's a lot of stuff that people accept and don't accept, to be honest I couldn't care less or more, doesn't really matter, I think people shouldn't base their opinions on what other people like.
