I couldn't care less what came with the ants as long as it doesn't cost anything extra. I mean, I'm not under the obligation to use any extras that come with it. But still, I second no anime.

There is no rule against anime, I don't see why he can't do this. It's a perfectly good advertising strategy, and it also draws the attention of fellow weebs. If you don't like it, don't click in.

Of course there's nothing wrong with it. I am just anti-anime (kinda joking) kinda not.  :)  Also I was tricked because I didn't know I'd see anime until I clicked. The title should say "Warning Anime Present In This Post"  :D

I don’t get this thread, but to each his own. Cut the OP some slack. We all have a hobby that most people think is stupid, disgusting, or worse. Why judge someone for another hobby?

i mean, it is not relevant to ants. it works as long as they are actually into ant keeping, but this forum should NOT become a place to just sell things not related to ants. it is a ant forum, after all.

But they are selling ants just giving a free mousepad with it. I don’t see a problem. It’s an advertising tactic.

Uhh, no matching opinions here. I may not like anime, but have I ever denied this thread is related to ants? Ants_Dakota should have read the first post and obviously jumped to conclusions ignorantly. While apparently Ants_Dakota wants this thread taken down, I am content to make the point that I don’t like anime.

i never said i wanted the thread taken down. i just want to keep formiculture solely about ants. that is what it was created to be. as long as they are really selling ants, i guess it works.

You stated that you wanted to keep this forum solely about ants. This implies that anything that isn’t solely about ants should be avoided. And I meant before you noticed that this was indeed an ant shop.
