When a career phase is too underappreciated...
You have a right to make your case just as much as the opposition does. If you feel that you no longer have enough trivia/logic/etc. to shift the outcome in your favor, you also have the right to choose between being a gracious loser, a silent loser, an evasive loser, or a more overtly... sore loser. Any of those can reflect your maturity. Just ask yourself where on the spectrum you want to be remembered, and then post accordingly.
The two common extremes seem to be the people who don't care about how they're remembered, and people who'd rather not be remembered. It's convenient to pick an extreme, that's what far too many people do, and their behavior unfortunately shows it. Sometimes people change their minds about whether or not they are okay with being remembered (usually based on how much they are 'winning' or 'losing' at the time) and flip like a lightswitch from one to the other while maintaining whatever their favorite career phase was.
Everyone has a moral obligation to take advantage of the fact that this community has no authoritative stance toward any particular career phase. If you find a expressive void that makes you feel uncomfortable or outraged, it's only as big as the combination of your bravery and your insight allow it to be. Nothing more or less than your own weakness will stop that void from being filled. You can cherish the opportunity or dread the responsibility, but either way the very last thing you need to be doing is blaming other people for the outcome.
You know Tokyo Jihen is a supergroup, when you can't blame most of the members for wanting to pursue other projects.
