It's a website that took the time and effort to come up for rules and regulations for competitive play. Not regular play, competitive. Personally I'm thankful there is a place that is taking its time to balance a competive aspect of a game that I love!

I have no problem with Smogon. I have a problem with the people that try to force people to play by their rules.

Yeah, I'm a crossplayer. Deal with it.

Heck, it's only rules for their own battle sim and advice on how to battle.
They're not forcing anything. Heck, you're encouraged to use your own Pokemon and movesets.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

People think Smogon is trying to deter people away from their favorites / ruins creativity.

I dunno why.
Apparently, I'm nobody.

I don't hate it, per se. But I like using it to help build teams and such.

Yeah I could see this. I also feel that people think most players that use smogon are jerks. Every single video game community as jerk. Personally I believe that the Super Smash bros. community is the worst.

Now, if people ASK me to use their rules, I most likely will. What I said mostly applies to Random Wi-Fi.

Obligatory "smogon iz the devil" post.

Seriously though there have been a lot of topics asking the same thing. Meh. For every elitist there's a hipster.
