I participate in a chatroom for language exchange and I mentioned having a large review queue (I really haven’t been on top of things lately…) and this guy came in and started going in on me, talking down to me and saying I was using a “shitty resource.” He believed Anki decks were the way to go and that anybody else was misguided. He even claimed that he learned 2900 Kanji in a year through this method.
He said that you wouldn’t be able to read very much and that WK is extremely limited in scope. I countered with the WKStats page which says that you’d be able to read 99% of Kanji in normal materials by level 60, but he quickly dismissed it and posted this graphic: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/511019900840443917/547561345877409861/1543046334472.png
So now I’m kind of confused. Does this difference come from wkstats only tracking readable individual kanji versus vocabulary count?
I know I shouldn’t pay too much mind to random people being rude on the internet, but it was kind of demotivating (especially being told “I doubt you’ll ever truly be able to learn Japanese”)
