12:09 pm - It just gets worse and worse...
And now we are up to Chapter 9 of the MsScribe epic.

And it has to be one of the most horrific accounts of fandom I have ever come across. Some pooor woman with cancer getting stomped on by a whole bunch of BNFs just because she asked one of them to link her fundraising website. After they had been going on about how fandom supports it's own and all that, too.

I don't think I have ever been so appalled by fandom as a whole. The things that were said...

Charitywank is the really appalling bit of it, I think. I mean, the systematic destruction of the reputation of a section of fandom is quite, quite horrible in it's own terms - and explains a lot about how vicious the ship wars are now - but at least they were a group. To attack one person like that, it's quite terrifying. Even if they were faking - which I don't believe, no one needs that sort of aggression thrown at them.

Exactly. She's attacking one person with seriously scary comments.

(If I got anything like that, I don't care if it's just the Internet, I wouldn't feel safe.)

I freaked out when I had a troll who was just saying offensive things about me, I have no idea how I'd react to something on this level.

I know how I'd react, if I didn't realise it was a thoughtless troll. And that scares me even more.
