We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
her viewing rates on yt rarely exceeds 100k even though she has over 800k so it seems the viewers are losing interest in what she has to offer which is monotonous and quite bland. Adding the lashing at people it will only prompt viewers who are still active to unsubscribe.
kenna's trajectory with her alleged productivity is quite an astounding record of not finishing anything: -a poetry book that was never published. -a language that she couldn't master. -videos she didn't film or edit. -an apartment that was invested into its gadgets and stuff but she left anyway. -unlimited funds that were wasted. she could have done a lot with the resources she had. maybe, having a private teacher if she was indeed persistent to acquire the language and settle in Japan. Another thing is hiring an editor or something that could have helped with the poetry book. Their job includes correcting mistakes and stuff. truly what a waste of good resources and time. I have noticed she moved out of Japan but wasn't sure until I checked her bec she is shoving the topic aside.
well, some users here are think the others being too harsh are quite mistaken imo. Vina has been nothing but a manipulative friend imho. first with Venus: they started off by going out, vina appearing in venus's videos and there were signs from then and there with the 'British humour' she keeps sticking too, when apparently she has stated that she hates the UK & will not return to live there. So, why do you abide by their humour narrative if you hate the place so much? -proceeding to Venus's mental health deteriorating and her fans going after vina- I don't blame her for getting angry and all bec it is draining- but at the same time she clearly explained that she is contacting venus in private and would like to keep it private. However, how on earth can you explain cutting off the person when they are in a dark place as a claim of working through it in private? I am not justifying venus's crazy behaviour or fanbase one but I am talking about how vina is contradicting herself, which quite honestly shows that once a person's purpose in her life is no longer needed she would easily cut you off like you mean nothing. Venus to her played an important role in her channel's growth and that's one of the major reasons I see that urged her to approach her. -secondly,we have kenna that isn't any better in terms of snowflake-ish behaviour, but just for the record even snowflakes have fucking feelings and people going silent on you does sting and leave you confused. So, if we are going to drag down other snowflakes but give vina the pass for doing the bare minimum it leaves a bad taste of double-standard here. A lot of foreigners travel to Japan, study, work multiple jobs and learn other languages along with Japanese and even sometimes support a family without seeing it as an asset of praise and to add they don't have a youtube channel or care to create one. yes, it is amazing to manage all of that, but knowledge is supposedly something to humble you. -lastly is piper, I also won't take her snowflake-ness into consideration because the vlog situation was purely a matter of respecting a person's personal space and the privacy of it. If you were in Piper's shoes-God forbids- would you be happy seeing ppl justifying this behaviour just because you aren't likeable. Also, vina kept bragging about how she convinced piper to move which is weird tbh. -in conclusion from these 3 experiences, I find the issue to be in vina's attitude whether it is the superiority thing or lack of sympathy or plain rudeness, it doesn't involve snowflakey behaviour but rather an interpersonal level of interaction. -she even came her once and readily threw her own mother under the bus to enforce a narrative that may possibly be as falsified any other thing fabricated on the internet. Later, we knew that her mother funded a lot of her lifestyle that she previously made it seem as if it was all her sweat and blood.
damn that sums up my online interactions..they only show interest when i serve a purpose and once i have given my all iget ghosted even though i just want to make friends i swear. i am tired of humanity at this point
It speaks volumes. I mean ppl who expect everyone to coddle them with praise abd whatnot while they on the other hand slander them "jokingly" are the most draining humans you can have in your life. Good on piper if she is trying to find genuine friendship tbh.
@Caeleigh you either don't understand what I mean or just want to put words in my mouth that I haven't said to validate your point. Well, we have never been given a firsthand account from the guy's parents anyway. As much as it is most generous to offer food to a guest and show them hospitality, it is also as important to be courteous and light on the family. Some invites may be out of their own kindness but they may as well not want guests on every single night. Japanese families are quite conservative and private, so having a person joining them for dinner every single day is burdensome even if not said out loud. I am certain they may have foreshadowed a little as she ceased bringing them up all of a sudden (which could very much imply she doesn't want questions on the topic but alas). It isn't farfetched as a heavy guest is an unwelcome one. what ay be accepted in the west isn't necessarily the norm elsewhere. It isn't about you and if you want to witch hunt bec i state the truth about her & you like her then you are in the wrong place. I take guests anytime and treat them like family but they are at least sensible and respectful to not knock at my door every night and I live alone. Respecting personal space and family's privacy has nothing to do with her behaviour and from an upbringing that stems from Asian tradition: it is an unspoken rule to be light.
As if she is one to talk with how she used hiro's place to save money on food and fyi even if Japanese ppl were polite enough to not say it straightforwardly i am sure there was hints and comments alluding to this but she didn't catch them or acted like it wasn't important.
Using simple grammatical structure is evident in her sentences that can barely pass as a N3. I am sorry but she is still far from N2. The formal text book sentences show how little conversations she has with people outside of the learning circle. She makes mistakes which is normal but it irks me how N2 is easily flaunted about. Entrance exams test personal & communicational skills and isn't indicative of the level acquisition.
