My last word - for now.  
Since it's now on f_w and personal attacks have been made against friends of mine (which is so far beyond the joke it's not even remotely funny or forgiveable), this is what I'm going to say about the current nonsense. Yes, ckll, I was talking about you and the dean_sam community yesterday. I still firmly believe the email you received is a fake, your 'proof' which you didn't even post yourself, is not proof, it's publically available information that can be found by anyone who can use Google.

That said, I'm pulling back from this now. I know what I think, if something more comes from it and I'm proven wrong I will stand up and apologise. Not for any personal attack on you because up until this moment I had not identified you in anything I said, no, I will apologise for bringing my friends into this nonsense and exposing them to wankery and personal insults.

For the record, *we* (since apparently this fandom has now become them and us - news to me) are not jealous that you were singled out. *We* asked for proof, *we* asked if you were sure you weren't being hoaxed, *we* were concerned that you might be checked out in advance of getting a Cease & Desist notice since your community promotes file sharing and distribution of copyrighted materials.

I think really that warden over on the f_w thread deserves the final word here, because really - genius.

Sorry - it's fandom_wank, a comm over on JournalFen.

Sadly enough SPN is starting to feature quite a lot over there.

The woman has some serious issues.

I wasn't going to say anthing more about it because - like I mentioned - I feel bad that I fanned the flames a little. And then I learn that people (not ckll, I hasten to add) are resorting to unforgivable personal insults? That's just so not on.

Yup, washing of the hands and hoping it'll fizzle out without too much fallout.

See - THIS is EXACTLY what I was worried about yesterday when I emailed you. I've seen so much crap in different fandoms over at F_W - and I really didn't want to see us get dragged into it, again.

Hell, I've seen fandom wank LONG before I was even aware of Livejournal. I watched an Angel group at Yahoo tear itself to shreds because they were arguing over whether or not David Boreanaz was gay, bi or if it even freaking mattered at all. (BTW, I didn't give a rat's ass myself.) I left when someone from the WB who said they WERE David emailed the list and said how disappointed he was in the whole mess. I just didn't want to be associated with all the crap coming down.

I really like this show and this fandom and what I'm trying to do to make this fandom more positive - so if it gets screwed up over some wankfest, I'm gonna be pretty pissed.

Luckily it looks as though it's actually starting to cool down, at least from my little corner here. It also looks as though thankfully FR hasn't been brought into it at all - people seem to have got caught up in focusing on the original post at the community and purplephoenix03's comments on her journal (Ash is on my flist and has ended up being treated pretty shabbily as a result).

Hopefully it'll all blow over by the weekend - with the next UK convention details being released today that *might* eclipse it a little (Dude - we're getting Ellen and Ash! *squee*!!)

Do you know how much I'd die to go to the UK? Seriously. Stupid money issues *grumbles*

And I hope this does die down, cause seriously... this is stupid. I mean, we're fans/fen/whatever. We all came into this for the same initial reason. Maybe I'm the insane (sane?) one that my ego isn't so out of proportion that I get all upset if I'm NOT a BNF.

I really don't care if people are going nuts to meet me at this convention or that show. Sure, it's flattering that people are reading my journal and deciding to friend me because they like what they read - but I'm hoping that means they find me interesting and not because I'm out there jumping up and down and going "oohh ohhh notice me, notice me. Like me, be my friend!"

I'm not going to say the email is genuine and I'm not going to say it's fake. The truth is, I don't know. I have my opinions, but that's all they are - opinions. I'll just wait and see if what I think is close to reality.
