I've got a "Hogwarts headache" all right...  
Today sucked. Have an HP-related link.

And then I made the mistake of clicking on someone's link and ended up reading some fandom wank. Big, huge, nasty mistake.

You see, I really don't understand why people find fandom wank enjoyable. Someone please explain to me why hurting other people or making fun of their problems has become a form of entertainment? People I consider friends, people I thought of as geniunely caring, wonderful individuals, go over there and laugh and mock and point and call names and make fun of whatever and whomever with no shame whatsoever. It's making me think I don't know them at all.

Maybe I'm naive. Maybe I need to get over myself and learn that being crass and rude and saying nasty things about others is where the real fun is at, and I'm crazy for trying to be nice for the most part and thinking the best of people.

And the saddest thing of all? This post about my disgust with fandom wank and disappointment in the people involved with it will likely end up ON fandom wank - this time with me being made fun of and called names. Well, I hate to break it to all of you wankers, but there is nothing could you possibly say about me that would be more painful than the things that have already been said - so go for it if that's what gets you off. -.-

That's what she said.: :-?altricial on October 30th, 2003 05:29 am (UTC)
Pretty much what John and anatsuno have said. We think it is funny, some don't and that's fine. Just avoid it if it bothers you, it's just like the whole if slash irks you, don't read it thing. It's like how during family gatherings my cousins and I sit around and snark about something a particular relative has done. It's funny and then we move on. Some of my cousins find that nasty so they don't join in, that's cool. We all just find different things funny and nasty. Will elaborate in my LJ if I have the strength.
