No, I actually just really don't care who you are. First I'd heard of you was in your post up there. I had to google you myself to find out what the big deal was.

You came to our forum to "Defend your name" from a perceived insult of a member who doesn't even post here anymore. Short of googling your own name, I don't know how you could possibly have found this page, let alone the one post in the one thread referencing you. Most of our members don't have the foggiest idea who you are, I only have a vague idea of who you are, and that's only because I googled you, but if you make it habit of stirring up trouble for sleepy little fan forms over something that you admit is pointless, because as your post so eloquently states "Everyone has a right to individual opinions"

Azrael didn't like you. That's his opinion. You could've just ignored it, but instead you decided to make a membership here, and post in response to him. You opened that door.

Frankly, if this is the way you react to criticism, or at very least, perfectly valid skepticism, then I'm inclined to agree with Azrael.

So, thanks for posting a trio of completely non-relevant messages in our forum; next time you decide to argue with someone who doesn't like you on a fan forum, you might wanna check to see if they actually post on it anymore.

This will be my last post, and I'm just going to assume you're all very young by the immaturity displayed here.

Just gonna repost this, from Zooey Deshanel, who just sums up my thoughts. It's a good rule of thumb, and something my mother repeated to me often.

by Zooey Deschanel
This is an Internet rant about Internet rants. This is a rant about anonymous, unconstructive, Internet meanness. It’s not because I think everyone should be happy and cheerful all the time. It’s just that I think people should be decent and respectful to each other.

Everyone has a right to individual opinions, but just because you don’t like something does not mean that no one else does. So, unless you have some really thoughtful and constructive criticism, why say anything at all? Or rather, why say it publicly? With the advent of the world wide web was born this conundrum; while the Internet has the fantastic ability to bring people of common interests together, it simultaneously gives people the ability to say all the nasty things they want, completely anonymously.

I have the utmost respect for true critics and writers who devote themselves to analyzing and appreciating art; this is NOT who I am talking about. Often the content of comments sections goes something like this (in Mad Libs form):

SouPerP1mp69: I hate (name of an artist/celebrity not in room)! He/she is (unflattering adjective) and (unflattering adjective) and someone should tell her/him that he/she should stop (verb/name of profession)-ing.

Well SouPerP1mp69, you lost me there! If I didn’t like sushi, would I say, “All sushi restaurants should stop making it for other people because I don’t like it”? No, I would not because that makes NO SENSE. If you don’t like a writer, don’t read their books; if you don’t like an actor, don’t watch their movies and so on and so forth. The people who are making art, successfully or unsuccessfully, have a right to do so and I can guarantee you that none of them are spending time making the things that they make for people who hate them.

So, why would someone go on a message board like a weird little sneak and write a bunch of mean stuff about someone? There are certainly artists that I don’t particularly care for, but do I publicly go and say mean things about them? No, I do not, because they shouldn’t care what I think, because they’re not doing it for me and if I don’t like it, then I am simply not their crowd. If people are supporting their efforts then I deduce that they have an audience of people who enjoy what they do.

It’s wonderful that people have different tastes. The word “opinion”, intrinsically, has no “right or wrong”, only “yours and mine”. People can buy into, surround themselves with and immerse themselves in whatever suits their fancy! So why rain on other peoples’ parades?

This leads me to my real point: what I want for our 1-month-old baby website I think negativity is the enemy of creativity because it stops people and shames people and that is not what I want for our community. I want this site to be a place where people feel comfortable and safe. I want this to be a place where people encourage each other instead of bringing each other down. And mostly, I want this to be a place where people identify themselves and stand up for the things they say and inspire each other to do better; write more, draw more, make more music, create more and share more. I will be darned if we don’t.

I have seen too much cruelty and negativity bring people down – people who do not deserve to be brought down. I want this to be the place that holds people up, fosters creativity and connects like minds. If you want to be negative or if you feel like saying mean things, then this is not the place for you. And although it’s none of my business, I challenge you to not say anything at all, or if you must write something mean, put it in a place where no one will find it.

We think that mean comments are bad. We hate them! We don’t want you be mean to each other and so the interface of this website was designed specifically with that in mind. My awesome co-founders, Sophia and Molly, and I are so lucky to have this opportunity. Ultimately, HelloGiggles is for all of you who read and contribute to this site. We truly appreciate that you share with us and allow yourselves to be vulnerable. We take this very seriously and we want to protect you, so you can grow up to be big and strong and successful at whatever the heck you want to do, to become the artists you want to become and support others in their endeavors.

We are counting on you, ladies and gentlemen, to help keep the love alive! So like your mothers probably told you, if you don’t have anything nice to say, please, don’t say anything at all.

We adore you all. Thank you for being a part of our world (and yeah, I am quoting The Little Mermaid!)

Okay, I said the word “Internet”, like, 60 times in this post, that’s my cue to sign out.

Is anybody going to say it? Can I say it? Okay, thanks.
Dude, you're a geek and a nerd with way too much time on your hands.

Holy hell, that was the most self-righteous, pretentious post that I've ever read by anybody outside of an Evangelion fan forum. I am once again relieved that I am myself, and not some jerk who flies into e-rage whenever he comes across someone saying naughty things about him during a chance Google search of his own name.

You know, it's times like this I'm glad I still come here and look at what's going on. This is really, really hilarious. Who is this guy? Near as I can tell it's just some unknown blogger with a broken website (seriously, redirects to some foum webring after two seconds and doesn't allow you to go back. You'd think he'd spend less time googling himself [seriously, who does that still?] and more time fixing things like that.)

And that last little essay repost was pretty much the best punchline. You know what other golden rule exists? Turn the other cheek and be the bigger man. If you think you were insulted that bad, what did you gain by saying anything back?

N8twing, I know you're "gone forever" or what have you, but we all know that means pretty much nothing on the internet. So I'm going to respond to you because honestly there's a good chance that you might come back and read this. You should learn how forums work. You always lurk before posting, you learn so many nice things. Like how the person you defended your honour against hasn't posted on this forum in ages. And, not only has he not posted anything in ages, his last post wasn't "This is my last post" so it's much more likely that he IS gone and won't be back.

Basically everything you've done involving this forum makes you look like quite a dink.

P.S Holy god The Happening was such a bad movie. No wonder Deschanel has taken up cookie cutter blogging.
