I just think its silly, people saying things like, "well this one sucked like all the others." Well if you didn't like the other ones why watch the latest? What did you think the latest one would do, open your eyes and all would be painfully apparent and you'd be an instant fan?
Personally, I spend my time on the net looking at things I actually like.
If the internet was full on intelligent, logical people this would be true. People will complain about anything they can, the best you can do is ignore it till it blows over instead of making a confrontation. We all saw how well that worked during every Cupcakes/The Cupcake Chronicles discussion.
Fair enough. I'm just anal about how I spend my time; I don't understand why people waste time on things they dislike. It's like people who will sit through an entire movie they don't like just because they bought a ticket. I'll try to sneak into a different screening or just walk out before I sit through a shitpile.
I used to be one of those guys who hated furries because it was what everyone else on the internet did and someone I knew IRL was a furry so we made fun of him because of that. Even back when they made the AH Admins group (A.K.A. WWDIS) I saw that Miles was one of them and thought "Why did Geoff pick a furry for an Admin part?"
But as I watched FiM my view on furries changed. I figured out that I was part of a group that was an easy target for liking something different. So why should we hate on another group that likes something different and weird to us?
Love and Tolerate. I really have learned to live by that saying. Except for stupid people, there's no excuse for them.
