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. -.-
I feel: disappointeddisappointed

I didn't say "flame the shit".

pottersginny used racist abuse (and all sorts of other abuse). And was generally offensive before provocation. And was, well, a homophobic racist bigot and flamed people.

I have no idea what happened 18 months ago so can't comment on the rest of what you said.
That's what she said.: ...altricial on October 30th, 2003 01:41 pm (UTC)
"Flame the shit" wasn't a direct quote from you, but that was exactly what we did. And everyone considers different things offensive and wanky. To say that it is only right to attack someone when the majority agrees that someone is an ass? It reeks of mob mentality. If someone did something I feel is wanky, even if it's a good friend of mine, I'll say, "Dude, that was so wanky it's hilarious." It's really as simple as that.

OK, then as John and Odd and others have said, we just have different ideas of what is acceptable behaviour. I wouldn't mock a friend, simply because I don't think friends should. Inconsistent? Yeah, but it's how I think I should behave. I don't have any obligation to W_E or Darlene, I think I do to people I know.

So yeah. Difference in personal values, and we should probably best leave it at that. <3
