Do you personally farm "easy PP" maps?

I actively avoid PP most. As a consequnce, for the most part, my top ranks are filled with maps that are good and I actually enjoy, rather than generic anime map 1-100.
Like I honestly couldn't wrap around my head why people actively avoid farming pp, you could still pretty much rank up and have various non meta maps in your top rank like what you said about cookiezi

i don't feel that guilty in standard. i feel guilty in taiko bc no one knows my super secret methods of farming so i feel like i'm a step of scum beyond scum ;_;..... but i guess i can live with being scum if it provides pp

I have a mix of PP Maps and Maps I'm simply proud of setting such a score on for the Rank I was "back then".
Everything's there, my first 200 PP is Get Jinxed, Sweet Neko and Can you understand me? both long and short version are in there, but also Maps like both Remote Controls and Endgame, because the thrill of setting such a Score was insane for me.

I am however horribly overranked for my actual skill, all I'm good at is jumps - throw me a 10 circles stream and watch the Acc go to shit when it's above 180 BPM. Yet, I want more PP and the only thing I refuse to do is Mod farming, especially since I can't DT to save my life.

And no, why would you get guilty for playing easy pp maps? [spoiler]unless it's choco-cookie[/spoiler]
Read this thread, KupcaH's answer, went for Choco-Cookie after that. Thanks mate. =D

To answer the initial question : Even if you're getting an easy score somewhere, 2.000 players will do the same. Let's share the shame if you're feeling so. That's still not my case tho.

Some people just don't accept "pp mapping" and it is a point of honor for them to not have top ranks filled with them. Simple as that.

Actually, in your cases, you're still letting the system define what you play.

Did it ever occur to you two that when you define yourself as anti-conformists, you're letting the people you hate control you, because you have to do the opposite of whatever they're doing, even when they're right?

Not actively chasing pp I can understand. But actively avoiding it? Get a grip.

Yes, I actively avoid shitty maps because I don't like those maps, nor do I want to support those maps with my plays, nor do I want to have them as permanent records on my top ranks rather than my top ranks being defined by maps I like and play. I'd much rather actively avoid PP maps that over time my top ranks being filled with nothing but TV-size this and DT that.

You don't really get guilty when farming pp.

You only feel like shit once you hit a wall and run out of pp maps to farm because your skill never improved from farming.

Yes.

I replaced my world's end score from three years ago with that kneesocks map as my top rank and I've felt gross about it ever since.

People still think like this.

It doesn't matter what map is it, If you like the song and want to have a good score on the map, go ahead and fc it. If you like the map and want to have a good score on it, go ahead and fc it. If you just want to play for PP and you want to get PP the easiest way possible, go ahead and fc it. there is no reason to feel guilty for doing something that you like, osu! is just a game after all. If you play the game for fun, just do whatever you enjoy. If you want to become good at the game in general, you have to play everything and this includes easy PP maps as well. If you want to be good at a specific aspect of the game and don't care about the rest then only do that. No one is going to judge you for what you do and if someone does just ignore them and enjoy the game :)

We share the exact same feeling, when I farmed Chicken's Theme (0:40 lenght) in a few tries, and then realised that it was my second best performance, I felt really guilty :/
