What's up with fandom wars?  
I will not ask anyone to stop doing anything at all, because I'm pretty sure no one will. I won't do it either because that's a lack of respect. In my position, I have no right to go around telling people to shut up or stop acting like themselves. No one has that right unless they're our parents. xD

But I just felt the need to say this.

Looking at all those posts bashing and bitching other people in the FMA fan-dom makes me want to ask: Why?
It doesn't annoy me, it doesn't make me mad, it just... puzzles me.
Seriously, it makes no sense. And the people who read this, and take it personally, it's just as puzzling. I just don't get it.

Can someone tell me what's the use of all the bashing?

If something annoys people so much, then why instead of just ignoring it like a reasonable human being they go around trying to change it in an ineffective way?

Annoyance is no reason to be rude to other people, that's what I think. If the comments of RoyEd fan-girls annoy you then don't read them. They won't kill you.

And it's just interesting how some people who read the bashing commentaries get defensive. Why is that?
If someone makes comments in a really rude way then you should already know that it's not worth it to listen to them.

That's how the fan-wars start and they're just... hilarious. It's senseless. Someone bashes, the person who's bashed then strikes back, more people join and it goes on. How can a "war" be started by FANS? I thought we already had ONE thing in common. I thought it was enough for all of us to get along well. It's puzzling.

What would you do if it was the real world then? The way it's looking it's as if you hated each other.

Thanks for your attention.

The following link is redirected to the community that motivated me to put this up.
It's relative whether you get offended or not. Just try not to make a chain-effect.

Someone will always think they're better than you. It all comes down to the overblown ego of the territorial elitist fans who think they know more or better or have more rights or more skills towards something so they consider themselves more worthy than the next person.

Me? I just call everyone a moron.

I fear/loathe fandom wank with a passion, so when I sense it flaring up, I don't post. D:

I'm really surprised that the "Which language do you prefer?" post didn't start a flame war, though. I was pleased to see that everyone stated their opinions without arguing about each person's choices. That was nice.

Are you a hippy?
Doesnt matter, it gets annoying, and people release their anger? Dang I dont know, who cares, people are different.
