Heh -- I will say one thing. It amuses me no end that the people who didn't want to talk about [...], are now being forced to talk about, or at least see talk about, [...] constantly, in the course of defending their choice not to talk about [...].

<sarcasm font>Never woulda seen that coming. </sarcasm font>

Muaha. And you think your fandom eats itself?

[Eats popcorn. Contemplates bidding on that poster.]

Right, exactly. I wasn't going to say anything about it at all, and frankly, I'm sure no one is missing my little opinion. But if I were to say something? It would be exactly what you just said-- that by placing a moratorium on discussion of [...], then [...] has become the big white elephant in the middle of the room. Funny funny stuff.

That's my thing exactly -- I guess I'm coming from a really limited pov, because I don't belong to discussion list or hang out much on boards. I read LJ, I cruise Fandom wank, which hardly ever mentions Buffy fandom, though of course this bit got a mention, ironically. But at least on LJ, I'm not seeing the ever so annoying [...]on Angel discussion from the 'crazy [...]fen,' and I'm certainly not participating in it, only partly because I'm not seeing it. What I am seeing is a hella lot of people... bitching about about either [...] on Angel, or the 'crazy [...]fen'. So the only bruhaha I'm seeing is the bitching, which leads me in my sheltered ways to think "So... if you don't want to hear about it, why are you talking about it all the time?"

Yea, but not on the list. It's a safe zone. And it sucks that fandom has to need one. My two cents.

But really, all kinds of fandoms have had all kinds of private lists and such, run by all kinds of people. It's not so surprising that the list itself exists, at least not to me. It's just that the LJ publicity that's been generated by announcing it the way it was announced, and continuing to discuss/defend it the way it's being discussed and defended, seems like it's increasing the offlist hype that is so annoying that people felt they needed a list in the first place.

In that case, I concede your point.

Jenny O and I actually discussed making such a list when she was here...no, not here, cause I'm in Atlanta, but when she was there..in Cal. at my house. If I was to have launched it, I may have done so in private email, but I didn't cause I was gone, and she did it herrrrrrrrrr waaaayyy so I shall not judge nor complain, just join up and see what happens.

But yea. Point.

*holds out hands* Please? I'm enjoying That Which Must Not Be Named free entertainment. Basically, the WB's nefarious plan is, oh, working? Not that we'd not talk about Angel anyway.

And that was english that wasn't. Go read narcopelticcat's fic. I'm pimping for him ;)

Hey, will you write some [...]/Xander slash with me? Or [...]/Wes? Or [...]/Angel? Frankly, I'm happy to read [...] slashed with anyone.

Hmm, [...]/Caleb -- now there's a pairing.

Hi. I asked kita0610 if she knew the url for the poster, since I haven't seen it yet. She told me to ask you, and as you want to bid on it, you obviously know where I can take a look at it. May I have the url, please? *bats eyelashes*

It's here:

I don't *really* want to bid on it, not at the price it's currently at. ;-) If it were, say, 20 bucks? Yeah, I'd do it. As much for the fun of saying I had the item that everyone was linking to, pro or con, as for the fact that I like the slashiness of the poster.
