I just got a rather long note from King-of-the-Hunters
titled "LEAVE #Last-Airbender-Movie"
, which likens the mods' deleting comments bashing the movie, and just plain old liking the movie, to fascism
, and harassment, and other things. I tried to respond, but they've blocked me as well, so I'm posting my reply here - mostly because I quite like it :3
Huh. Well, I liked the movie. It wasn't perfect, but it mostly had the things in it that I wanted, so.
And I'm sorry if the mods of the group are rude. That's wrong. But an "I LIKE THE THING" group is not the place to post "Reasons I don't like the thing", (particularly when the ONLY stuff you hear about this particular thing is how bad it is), so I think the mods are justified in deleting those posts. Also, a group mod has the right to decide what goes in their group and what doesn't, and you can always not follow the group if it posts stuff you don't want to see.
And for the love of puppies, none of this has anything to do with fascism. Words have meanings; they're not like seasonings, you can't just apply them to stuff to give the flavour you want.
(I'm sorry, you've just found the one person on DA that's been listening to people in power in her country do this kind of word-seasoning shit for YEARS. I'm sort of annoyed).
I'm sorry you are upset, and I'm sorry you didn't like the movie. But other people thinking differently (and not being willing to let negativity about it into their space IN SUPPORT OF IT) is not worth so much trouble. Just let us be wrong in peace.
