1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    They don't. If you're talking about native asians or FOBS, it's because they've done hair like that since the early 90's.

    Is someone cruising for a banning or am I missing something here?

    I think it's just cruising, period.

    I've no idea that we Asians in the Pacific Islands have Emo hairstyles. I don't even think more 3% of the population here would know what Emo is.

    Wait are you referring to pacific islanders like those who reside in Hawaii, Samoa, and other polynesian/micronesian islands? Most of them that I've known have unkept hair. Some consider Filipinos like myself as Pacific Islanders rather than Asians yet most of us have shaved heads. So I fail to see what you are referring to.

    I think you mean eastern Asia. In that case blame their popular culture. Drama and J/K-pop stars. They love being trendy.

    Those cuts are much more rock-star inspired than "emo." In the case of hte guys in that picture, I think most of them are well-suited to their hairstyle.

    What's the beef?

    oh and uhh.. Final Fantasy styles are a reflection of pop culture, not the other way around :p

    I don't know... I'm jst making stuff up as I go along. I saw FF characters long before I started seeing Japenese kids with those sorts of haircuts everywhere. Not that I was really looking, but none of the japanese at my boarding school had those sorts of cuts.

    It's kinda what you do with really straight black hair. I am a daywalker though since I'm asian with relatively curvy/wavy hair.

    I deal with my stigmatized half-existence by being lazy and simply shaving my head every couple of months.

    Asian chicks love it.

    You don't.



    You are clearly not their target market but by starting this thread, it sure seems like you want to be.

    You're confusing the two because they *gasp* both have straight hair, and asians have always had inherently straight hair.

    I think Asians like outlandish haircuts because they watch too much Dragon Ball Z.

    The Asian haircuts vary depending on age and region. The guy in New York may sport his hair long, but his San Francisco counter-part may do something shorter. The place you frequent apparently favors the longer &quot;emo&quot; look.

    OP was repeatedly sodomized in the butt by a gang of emos.

    and they all cried after.
