I love the fandom very much. It has taught me to accept folks for who they are and to try to not be overly judgmental. There are good folks and bad folks. If I hear you are a bad person, I will tend to avoid you or at least be very wary around you. I will hold off judgement, however, until an action affects me or a dear friend. I also think that 1st-hand stories should be shared so that people can be on guard against potential harm. There have been several stories as of late of people getting into relationships with people with a long history of abusive behavior. Had the stories been circulated sooner, trouble and heartache could have been avoided. Note I said "1st-hand" stories. He said/She said stories should be taken with grains of salt.
I write this because I have seen and read about the drama that occurred at FC regarding a certain (in)famous fur. I keep hearing how evil he is/was. Judging from the volume of stories I have heard, there must be some truth to the fact that he enjoys to fuck with people. That's a bad thing. But how has he fucked with people? Called names on the Internet? Trolled? Acted obnoxious? I know several people that fall into that category. And I guess that's the point. There are unfortunately a lot of fucked up people in the fandom. If you target one, you should target the rest. There are also just as many goody-goody G-rated furs out there that creep me out as much as the hardcore X-rated ones. Somewhere in the middle is the fandom I truly love and enjoy.
