fandom_help: cool idea that will, sooner than later, generate alllll kinds of wank. But possibly accomplish some positive things along the way.

Nitpick: "helping fandomers in need" -- fans? If one wanted to use a word that actually exists...

Can I start the wank by saying that, while wonderful to want to help other fans - banding together to buy someone an iPod isn't "in need." It's a luxury (for someone who is, admitedly, in need.) But buying someone groceries isn't the same thing as buying them an expensive toy. ;-)

Is still the Good One

Yes; I agree. We've been chittering on the subject elsewhere.

I've given up on trying to fathom the depth and plentitude of wank available in HP fandom. I watch, I cock my head, but I do not try to understand.

iPod! ::giggles::

Maybe the next request will be for "Vibrators are banned in 'such and such country', if you have any old & out of date models to help out those in need...."

Serious response: I can see where they're going with it, because the idea is that the daughter, who has cerebral palsy, used half of her own savings that she was saving up to buy one for herself in order to have entertainment when she spends hours in the hospital accompanying her mother to cancer treatments, to bail her parents out on some medical bill or other. But they could have a whip-round and buy her a 12 dollar portable cd player and burn her a bunch of cd's, if they didn't want to wade headfirst into the Sea of Wank...

Snarky response: I'm just sayin'..."
