Why is every other post on these forums a reference to something?

"BUT YOU MAKE REFERENCES TO THINGS TOO YOU FILTHY HYPOCRITE"
Yeah. My usertitle, profile bio, and possibly username are based off things relatively obscure outside Japan. (If you want to know what they are, it's Touhou Project, Mahou Sentai Magiranger, and Kamen Rider Blade. If you didn't want to know, too bad I told you anyways) The only problem I have is if you post it in a public place and force other people to talk about it.
This mostly stems from the fact that every day I go on here, I seem find at least one person posting some Yugioh meme in a thread/whatever that has nothing to do with Yugioh. Why? If the topic has absolutely nothing to do with Yugioh, what is the point of bringing it up? Saying something that non-fan will not understand is just completely myopic. And I don't mean just Yugioh here, even if it's coming off like I am.
If something was really witty and worth posting to other people, anyone would be able to understand it; not just a specific group. Resorting to nothing but references and memes for your wit is creatively bankrupt and does not contribute anything of any value to any discussion.
