Come One, Come All

No more need you waste time reading the journals of those whose fannish priorities are misaligned with yours, but don't display their true colors until you've made the mistake of praising them publicly for something you do agree with them about. No longer need there be ten comments worth of disclaimering and "But I didn't mean you because..." or "But what about me -- I fit those criteria but I don't act that way..."

Now you can just fill out this handy-dandy sheet, post it in your user info, and all Whedonverse Fandom can make a quick, balanced decision about whether to hate you or not, with one convenient click!
