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.

I, for one, get off on oppressing people in this fandom all the time. There's nothing warms the cockles of my black little heart more than a plaintive whine of 'you elitist bitch!' because hey, you can't please everyone.

Just FYI, though, I especially enjoy oppressing the folk of fm_alchemist, so if anybody uses this rant as an excuse to flame, bitch, bash or otherwise piss me or the other mods off, we will lock threads and give you your first strike warning out of three. Just sayin'.

I'm calling off-topic, actually. This rant has nothing to do with FMA itself and sounds more like something that belongs in a personal LJ to me. What do you think? We need a third opinion?

Ooh, can't we just be tyrannical and blame it on manga fans, dub fans and het 'shippers?

Hahaha. Generalization. And today's society is so characterized by people taking pride in being open minded... no really,.. that sounds like pure generalization.
So the source of pure evil in the fma fandom are manga fans, fub fans and het shippers?
Okay... so people, this is how fanwars start.

Hehe. I'll take that in account then.
Just so you know... the point of this is not to bash anyone if someone wants to bash someone else with what I posted it's their problem and they're totally missing the point. I just wanted to see how others reacted.
