lucifer-Why is this community so cancerous? They all defend retarded classes and think highlander is better than 6s

How is having an opinion about a certain portion of the competitive play spectrum "cancerous"? I would think poor sportsmanship and character in general, among other things, contribute to a "cancerous" environment, but definitely not a mere opinion that differs from mine or yours.

I assume that they are mostly pubbers, with vague senses of competitive. They chooses highlander probably because it is more recognizable to pubs, it has the classes that they enjoy playing in pubs, or they know about it through people who are highlander players but prevalent in the pub communities like stabby. /r/tf2 is meant for tf2 in general, so don't expect in-depth discussion about the game or serious posts.

I'm pretty active there because I can't ever get enough comp TF2 content and there are usually questions I can answer.
That being said, it's almost as bad. The front page over the last week or so has been full of multiple complaints about the 6s metagame, complaints about the comp community in general, and tons of incredibly general threads about "how to play x class in y format." They're so general as to be completely useless, and they've also been posted literally dozens of times. I don't have a problem with people complaining if they have valid complaints that they back up with experience, but that's not what's there. All too often it's the "6s community won't let me run pyro to mid because it's too good/a circlejerk/elitist/whatever," and they refuse to take any other explanation.

That guy must have been pretty disappointed to find out that a jacking off server was not what he was expecting.

To be fair this community can be pretty toxic as well.

I'm not saying that I am not contributing to it, just putting it out there.

There are other gaming communities that are infinitely more "toxic" than any TF2 community. I would say we have it pretty good in comparison.
