Interesting Article  
I find this article fascinating to read. Bullying in fandom (apparently this happened at Gallfrey One?).

This also extremely irritates me.

the Article on Fandom Bullying


Edit: This is also how I feel with Stargate Universe. So many Stargate fans hate it, which is fine, but then they go and complain to the actors that they don't like the show they're in. What?? And then when the show was canceled, people tweeted joyful remarks about it like making a bunch of people unemployed was an awesome thing.

*sigh* Fandom *sigh*

You know, weirdly, this happens in the Sanctuary fandom with Will's character ALL THE TIME. Although, to my knowledge, fans are generally very nice to the actor himself.

I can see not liking a character. I've not liked a character. But I've heard stories where like, fans went up to SGU actors all "I hate your show. Why did they cancel Atlantis for SGU?!"

Which makes me go o.O cause... really?

Yeaaaah that is so not cool. Especially when the decision not to renew Atlantis had very little to do with SGU anyway, as far as I've read.

Exactly. Nor was it the actor's decisions either. They just wanted to play a part in a show.

Bleh.

That's horrid.

I like SGU. I don't think it's a stargate show, but a space show, but i like it. However, even if I disliked it, criticising you for liking it, crowing over it's cancellation or bitching to the actors? NOT ON.
