Unamusement Is Me
So, nonexistant viewers of my journal, we all heard about the incident or as I like to call it "The Post" on [info]deleterius. And I have to admit that I do agree somewhat with the reasons for keeping the icon up. However, I do believe that tricksyserpent could have been a lot less offensive with her reply than she was. Yeah, I know this is coming from a cynical bitch who isn't too kind too the fanfics she sporks but there's a fine line between courtesy and cruelty. So yeah... I'm considering leaving the community earlier than I wanted to and sporking on my own... but as you know, nonexistant viewers, the people who would actually watch my journal is well... nonexistant. So I'm doing what I do best: weighing the pros and cons of staying or leaving [info]deleterius.

If I stay...

- Sharing the humor of badfanfiction with fellow sporkers and viewers
- Guarantee that my sporks won't rot away in my journal viewed by no one

- Possible loss of viewers who have left the community due to "The Post"
- Loss of sporkers to discuss the bad fanfic with who have left the community due to "The Post"

If I go...

- More freedom in how I spork
- Sense of independence
- It's my playground ;)

- High guarantee the no one is going to view my sporks
- Possible loss of thrill when sporking since I will have no one to share that thrill with :(

I really don't know... So, off I go nonexistant viewers, I need some time to think about this.

I haven't been on Deleterius for a long time. I'm still following it, but I've kind of felt before now that the "Glory Days" of the journal might be over. I'm hoping this whole fiasco isn't the deathknell for it, because I still have a soft spot for the community even if I haven't been participating lately.

I agree that the situation was poorly handled. I've never been entirely comfortable with the icon itself, but I overlook it because my enjoyment overrides the discomfort. I understand other people can't overlook it, though--there's always going to be someone who disagrees with you--so I think Tviokh's reaction was irrational and unreasonable at best. It wasn't like the e-mail was attacking her personally, or even attacking the journal--if it was, I could understand the reaction, but as it was, it was a total overreaction.
