To me, it does not come accross that way at all. It may be that the public decides to view a deck and that the larger community has decided that the person who posted the deck believes a certain way; but the interpretation of the “work” while public domain, can’t be used to condemn the “artist” without just cause.
Its unfortunate if you guys really do see these decks only as mockery, or gate keeping. Is it there a bit? I’m sure it is occasionally. But when I wrote mine I had nothing in mind but self deprecational thoughts. I want to pump this deck up that isn’t AMAZINGLY COMPETITIVE because it is AMAZINGLY JANKY. Within my posts is both a love jank and an understanding that it is suboptimal and will fail me if I subject it to the true fires of competition. I am intending to strike both a balance of self criticism and love of the jank with a single posting, and I acknowledge then that the casual viewer may then apply their own frame of reference and interpret the medium as they see fit.
That said, it would be unfortunate to judge the posters based on your interpretation of events as we’re all incomplete and flawed interpreters. It would also be unfortunate to grant sanctity unto a list or a system which is flawed such that we must only ever be srsly serious when evaluating stuff. If a person is allowed to sincerely believe their jank deck is amazing and post it. Then I feel I should be allowed a more self-aware post that acknowledges the truth, even if my acknowledgement is expressed sarcastically.
