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.

The Fanwars site is mostly Humorous... Kind of like "shipwars".

It's not supposed to make sense and it's not done IN seriousness. IN FACT it's MAKING FUN of the WANKYNESS on communities like this.

IT IS A CARTOON and a COMIC BOOK. A GREAT one to be sure, but it's NOT REAL.

No one is gonna die because of FMA... that would be amusing and one for the Darwin Awards.

Most of the pairings that get people riled up aren't CANON. OR even HINTED at in Canon.

Please all be writing high quality stuff and getting people smexxed up. Thank you. In-Character Characters getting smexxed up is hot. Ship Bashing and fanpoodle-ism? NOT so much. It makes me giggle and write/read more smut. The odd and squicky pairings? WRITE what you LIKE! SHARE it, perhaps someone will be happy to see it, or at least amused that someone's imagination was OUT THERE enough to WRITE the piece. (OOOH, imagination it's so DANGEROUS.)

Every time someone non-cons Havoc, I write a fluffy het scene.

Thank you, that is all.

Sorry, not done with the Soap Box:
OH, and people who have TOOO much time on their hands? Please join a club in the real world, or something. Or get a part time job, or I dunno, volunteer?

Fandom isn't so very serious when you are out having a life.

I agree. Just don't let it take over your life... that's what I think.
Fandom won't get you a job, pass all your classes, feed a family, most likely won't give you a family for that matter, if it makes you happy... try other things, believe me, it'll make you so much happier. >> (cheesy crap... damn)
