I am sick to fucking death of the fandom police on Tumblr trying to dictate how I use other fucking sites.

Ah-Oh. What happened? (Or dare I ask?)

Oh dear. I don't use tumblr so I don't know what's going on, but screw whatever they're trying to say.

While on the one hand, tumblr is a bastard of a site to actually use if you want to ever be able to find anything again (ever) - I think it manages to break a primary law of the web in that respect alone - there is nothing stopping these little darlings from learning how to use things like search terms and boolean qualifiers ("Cloud" AND "Sephiroth" NOT ("platonic" OR "friendship"), frex...) or regular expressions. Not to mention regular expressions, or even database query languages. All of these alterations of their own mental tool sets to deal with a world which involves others would probably require far less effort than individually chasing down and scolding every single person who isn't following their particular little rule set.

But as I've commented elsewhere, there are some people who exemplify the retail truth that "the customer will always bitch" - and there are some people who will be whinging at the angels in heaven about the way the particular wavelengths of the divine light hurts their eyes.

What are they doing this time? Ugh, fuck them. (I've started ignoring basically everyone that tells me how I have to fandom right.)

And this is why I skim tumblr some days and completely forget it exists on others. Because it is not even a Pit of Voles, it is a Pit of Phenomenally Stupid Rabid Hornets, who will get their panties in a twist and swarm all over whatever is infringing on their ridiculously entitled little lazy lives. =P

It may be because I'm not actively in fandom anymore (at least, not in the sense of writing slash pairings), but I don't see too much of it -- except when other people repost an offending post to dogpile it.

If someone tried to tell me what I may and may not do in my fiction, though, I'm afraid my response would be scary. "If you come into my house to tell me what I can't write, you had better be armed and have a SWAT team with you. If you limit yourself to screeching at me on the Internet, I will laugh and tell you to fuck yourself."

I guess after decades of dealing with toxic people, I just don't give a shit any more.

Oh, sweet slashing Jesus. Call the FBI! ;)

I think nostalgia is clouding your eyes to the tsunamis of wank we enjoyed in the halcyon days of LiveJournal. Remember Fandom Wank? It's just that back then, the biggest rage-inducer was finding out that people disagreed with your OTP.

Oh, not that shit again.

I have a buddy who volunteers with the Archive and her rants re: pairings tags and the idiots who don't understand how they work are kind of hilarious.

Have these people forgotten that fanfic is written by other people in their leisure time, for free, for their entertainment, and the writers deserve a shitton more courtesy than these asshats seem capable of?

I honestly think it's a combination?

And as someone from the so-called "third world" I heartily dislike the term First World Problems, but damned if this isn't a textbook example.

(I really would like to punt these entitled children back to the days before Ao3, where your choices were some unholy combination of Yahoogroups, the Pit of Voles, trawling horrendously laid out GeoCities sites, and/or hoping your favourite archive hadn't been taken down because of a C&D or worse, but then, I'm not nice.)
