Im a 15 year old theater girl. My life coulnt possibly CONTAIN more drama. I used to come here to escape it. not anymore.
When i first joined fanpop, i had no idea about the "community" of people on here. I had never been part of an internet community in my life, and i was absolutley blown away by the generosity, helpfulness, acceptance, kindness and good humor the all users seemed to eminate. I LOVED coming on because if i ever had a question, comment, forum topic, article, pick or anything, i knew it would be viewed with an open mind. No fights, only intelligent discussions about what really mattered, the reason we all joined these spots in the first place, that reason being THE SHOW.
and not that im not grateful for it, but its the standard ive come to expect from the house-related spots i visit every day.
I havent seen these standards in a while, to be honest.
Yes, there has been some MAJOR fighting recently. But let me just say this is NOT the fault of the newbies. And i think its wrong to blame the recent atomosphere on them.
We were ALL newbies once. And if there fighting, its because there taking the example from those who are already here. Newbies coming in are setting there standards low, and frankly im really dissapointed and just generally shocked at the behavior ive seen.
If Fab has a problem with Bery, they should DISCUSS it maturley and calmley. thats why we have forum boards.
since when did we become so savage? this is a site for everyone to share there own opinions and i think we should be able to do it without worrying about being accused of not being a "True" huddy/house fan. The self-proclaimed "superfans" who blame the newbies arent the solution to the "newbie problem". There making it worse.
In conclusion, i think everyone, even if you dont feel like you did anything, should take a good step back and just look at the comments youve made or articles youve written or whatever in the past month or so and try to walk in the other persons shoes. Even if you think there opinion is ridiculous, you dont have to say it or get mad.
Im not naming names or talking about anyone in particular, but all i gotta say is that im really dissapointed. :( i want the old fanpop back!
