EVOLVE already
Of course people have to be ugly when they can't get something for free any longer. =/ The amount of hate Sam is getting through Tumblr and now HDJM (I'm blocking things from getting through after making an example) is ridiculous.

I take my job at HDJM very seriously. It WILL REMAIN a safe place for fannishness.

For those of you who are always fun and happy and excited to talk about things you love, YOU ARE WHY WE DO THIS.

*rubs face* Why do people feel the need to act like huge assholes simply because someone doesn't write what they like in a manner in which they like? Poor Sam! Please send my hugs to her.

You're awesome in not putting up with that shit. Idiots need to be put in their place and that's what you do. You do you!!

Entitlement, pure and simple. Every [enter day] such and such posts something they've come to expect, and now that it's not going to be there, they went through the process of signing up just to leave a shitty comment that they don't like it.

WOW. That's a lot of wasted energy, right there. *high fives you*

I was just thinking this morning about how it seems to be such a human thing to act on negative thoughts and emotions but hold back with positive ones. Maybe we feel less risk in acting on negativity?

I dunno - it's just a bit sad-making since the internet seems to be tailor made for negativity given the natural impulse to act on negative thoughts plus the anonymous nature of it. I'm pretty certain a lot of people spew hate on the internet in a way they'd never do in a million years were the target right there in front of them.

Kudos for wading against the tide and staying positive. It's likely that a lot more people appreciate it than will say so.

We're such a society based on mocking (I think) that it's safer to roll your eyes or point out something wrong when you could have that mocking energy turned onto YOU for LIKING something. I can't stand it.

"I'm pretty certain a lot of people spew hate on the internet in a way they'd never do in a million years were the target right there in front of them." SO. DAMN. TRUE.

They'll ruin this site when they can pry it from my cold, dead fingers. :D

Wow. I haven't been reading the recaps because I was (as always) playing catch up with television. I don't know why she's stopped, but that's her decision and people should respect her decision. Full stop. Bitching and finger pointing might get you money off your cable bill but it sure as hell isn't going to get you far at HDJM.

I'm sorry Sam is going through this.

"But that's her decision" - this is why you are so lovely. I mean, TWoP is already there full of people recapping shows they hate, why throw our hat in the ring?

Thanks for getting (and supporting!) what we're about. <3

TWOP is actually closing soon, but yeah, there are plenty of hate-watchers out there, and your site is for enthusiasm! This isn't her job and she doesn't owe them anything.

I saw - that was announced a few days after I made this post, actually!

There are LOADS of hate-watch places, so why add to it? It's awesome to find other people who feel the same. <3

Good for you -- I know there are complete jerks everywhere but I was thinking a bit more highly of the Fannibals than some of the other fen.

This last episode apparently caused a HUGE rift in the fandom, exposing some of the shittier aspects. =/ Sam's a champ, though, and taking it all in stride.

I dosed off a bit right at the end, so I actually didn't see that one moment. I just read it on a different recap and yeah, I'm with Sam not the assholes.

I applaud Sam for not doing something that won't make her happy.

For a while I contemplated coming to you to recap Once Upon a Time, but parts of season 2 and the first half of season 3 made me so frustrated, I realized it wouldn't be a good thing for the site.

You keep being a great mod/friend/recapper and I'll keep commenting, steering people to the site and maybe one day find a show I can recap.

I had to stop recapping Glee for the same reason. I get it - and I get TOTALLY why you were hesitant. That's a tough one, loving a new show only to be shocked where it goes. :(

You are SUCH an amazing supporter of the website, I just can't. You are a CHAMPION and I think you're the bee's knees. <3

Whoa.
Sorry to hear about people being harsh. Thanks for all you do!! Tell Sam I totally understand.

Re: Whoa.
It's under control at the site now (which is GREAT) but it sucks that she had people be gross to her through messages, etc. You are AWESOME for supporting her, thanks for that! <3

That bites that Sam is getting any negative reaction. I'm so glad we write for a site that stands by its writers and their decisions, and glad that she took the time to discuss her perfectly understandable and helpful run down on the disconcerting focus on female deaths and the upsetting decision to kill a beloved character of color. Go HDJM!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
