    How about commenters that would like to kill the authors coz they don't like something on a free webtoon trabslated for them for free and given free spoilers?

    I really think that is the reason.
    I've had to explain what happened in a chapter to people because they so obviously didn't even read that part of the chapter they are commenting on. It annoys me that when something about what they've skimmed bothers them, instead of rereading the chapter thoroughly to see if their complaints are valid or if they missed something, they go straight to complaining.

    Someone who essentially just shitposts.

    Another one the pisses me off a whole lot, is when they berate the author making x character do x things such as some characters being to greedy or do something dumb. I don't think they understand that the author meant to make the character like that. It's fine to hate the character in general, but don't accuse the author, unless they go back on what they have originally said/made.

    Oh also the fact that people can get really angry when a "smart" mc, does something dumb. It's not like the mc is perfect, sure he is smart, but he doesn't get the thoughts of other people, or be able to look at what others do, like the readers get too.

    Are you bingeing the whole thing? Are you reading it daily? Someone bingeing can obviously keep track of the minutiae which might be forgotten by daily readers who are usually the commenters.

    When even authors can't keep track of their filler filled extravaganzas, you can't expect daily readers who probably read multiple novels to be able to remember which random gu was with which demonic cultivator.

    The whole waifu nonsense from obviously non romantic stories eg The Devil 's Cage.
    Even the translator does it, he even spoils the story in the comments... :facepalm:

    The way I see it, when you read the story all at once, or at least in massive chunks, you remember enough of it to understand it well. But if the translation is slow, and you're reading only one chapter a week, you tend to forget much of the stuff that was there, and remember only the parts you're enjoying.
    On the other hand, some people are simply stupid or not familiar with the author's culture. So I don't hesitate to share my understanding with them. And occasionally I get to ask questions myself, because Japanese thought patterns still occasionally leave me confused.

    I suspect some theories are meant as jokes. Especially the ones that cross-reference other works.

    People who complain about MC having a fixed personality they don't like. Bonus hate if the MC's personality is similar to mine.

    I like the theory that they're all tsundere.

    I find the way you make communism and nationalism to be the same thing disturbing.

    Omg the comments on daoist gu are the worst, I remember reading this one that complained there wasn't romance yet (reason for that) and about the mcs personality and anti-hero-ness like... its in the tags and the description makes it way obvious that he's not a hero. I personally find those two points some of my favorite things about the novel tbh

    Novel comments are full of crazy people. Literally a chapter where some random bad guy acts up against the MC, all you see is comments is "this guy is so arrogant, hope the mc kills him and his whole family/sect/etc, rape his wife, kick there baby blah blah blah" then in later chapters MC acts superior, doesn't show anyone a single ounce of respect basically being an arrogant asshole and the whole comment section is like "the mc is so alpha, I love it!".
