REAL TALK TIME
Let’s talk about some askblog etiquette, shall we?
So, today a thing has been going around in fandom you’ve probably seen, which has caused a bit of an influx in my askbox regarding the whole ordeal around dolorosa’s death
Which is fine. You know I don’t mind people asking questions about canon events because that’s what I’m here for.
Except these? These aren’t questions. These are anon hate directed at Dualscar. Like, literally, I got a ‘question’ today about how much of a monster Dualscar is for ~taking the Dolorosa away from Mindfang~ the way he did, and how they hoped his death was painful.
Which is where you might go ‘so? he’s a fictional character. It’s not like his feelings could get hurt.’
Except, you know, while Dualscar might be a fictional character, I, the person who runs this blog, am not. And I have to sift through this tripe. I have to deal with this anger from a stranger, regardless of whether it is directed at me or no. And that’s really, really not funny.
I understand the appeal of taking whatever dislike you have for a thing out on a character, but the askbox of an askblog is not the right place for your venting your frustrations. People run askblogs for things they like, and they do so with their spare energy in their free time. If you don’t have the common decency to respect that there is a real human being behind this character, regardless of how much you might dislike them, perhaps you need to reconsider leaving questions in people’s askboxes at all.
