1. Pro tip for writers of any flavor, especially fandom:

    If you put something up for public consumption, you are opening it and yourself for criticism.

    If you put something up for public consumption that deals with a touchy and/or sensitive issue, you are likely to receive criticism from people who view it differently from you.

    And the most important part:

    • Someone criticizing your work on their own blog in their own conversation not involving you is not “dragging your name through the mud”
    • Someone criticizing your work on their own blog in their own conversation not involving you is not “slinging mud” and “mindless hate”
    • Someone criticizing your work on their own blog in their own conversation not involving you is not them “attacking” you or trying to ruin your reputation
    • Someone criticizing your work on their own blog in their own conversation not involving you is BASICALLY NONE OF YOUR GODDAMN BUSINESS
    • If you think people who disagree with you should “just ignore it and not read it!”, then the same goes for you regarding their opinions. Don’t want to see people disagreeing with your work? Don’t go to their goddamn blog and whine about it.

    I am far, FAR less offended by the content of the blog being discussed than I am by the behavior of the writers, flouncing about and crying about slander because somebody DARED to disagree with how they approach what is, again, an incredibly touchy and sensitive subject. If I hadn’t blocked the blog long ago simply because it was spamming the hell out of my pairing tags, I would now.
