Some people...

I am currently deep in an investigation
into "fandom", "fan-fiction" and "fan-wanking"
(it's fascinating stuff people!)
and I'm just...
it's like...
is all I can say.

Some people seriously need a reality check.

There are articles about the subject of fan(aticism)dom.
Articles angry at the original article.
Articles defending the original article.
Articles defending the subject.
And on it goes.
Until it takes on a life of it's own and is no longer even
remotely related to the original question/opinion/whatever.
I'm following one such discussion at the moment.
It's dizzying.
I have no idea what's going on any more.
And some people are actually a bit scary...
Generally it's hilarious though!

Also, some of these people don't seem to have the
same embarrassment threshold as the rest of us...
From the thread I'm currently reading:

"sure I write (fan fiction), but I draw the line at anything I'd
be embarrassed to actually discuss with them in person
should that ever come up when meeting them..."

Ok, seriously?

This is fun!
I urge you all to delve into this fascinating world!

Peace out
