Ok

 OK, 

I actuly found this post insulting http://community.livejournal.com/supernatural_tv/1360834.html 

I know that most of you know i record Supernatural. I have all season.  I'm on dial up, so I can't downlaod, heck I can't even open some of the people on my f'list's journals.  

Most of you know what a hard desion it was for me to choose what show to watch live (even though I'm not a Neilson family) and I found the tone of her post insulting.

Do I love the show less becasue I want copys of it to watch again?  

I don't know why I felt the need to defend myself on the post when I normaly jsut shrug it off.

i don't know if you read my commet to her post - but I actuly went to her l/j and apologied. Not that I think she would read it. I do agree we should be watching live - but I don't feel that she took into acount waht a hard decision it was for me to choose what to watch live vs tape.

I gave up House for Supernatural. I gave up CSI for Supernatural. I'm not even sure I always like Lost - but for some reason I wasn't ready to give it up either.

I didn't go read the comments until I had gotten into it wiht her... You know I even pointed out exactly what I found offensive. I honislty don't think she gets why people would be offended by her post and it may be a 'two countrys seperated by one languge' kinda thing.

She dson't see what a hadr choice it is for some people.

I started watching Supernatural on Tuesdays - I'm bakc to watching House now.

Yeah uhhh she's basically saying you fail as a fan if you watch Lost, which is ridiculuos and IMHO is over the top in the "I'M A BETTER FAN THAN YOU" kinda way. I'm sorry it got to you so badly though. I know how it is when little things get to you and later your liek WHY WHY GOD did I get drawn into that!!

But it happens.

I actually responded to that thread, though not on your thing. Someone was boogled about how the creepiness of the SPN fandom could affect it's rating so I had to explain how a negative public perception of the fandom (which IMHO, as an outside entity, I think SPN has) can make people not want the associaiton and therefore not watch.

oh yeah the fandom is truly creepy! my worry is that the creepyness of the fandom will efect the liklyhood of the show being renued. Talking creepy? Jensen (the older one) was jumped at a con and had his undershirts stollen, and Jared (the younger) had a death threight at the last con he went to. So totaly creepy

After reflection I'm not sure she ment the "I'm a better fan then you" thing - but it was there. I was jsut the first to be insulted by it...

The thing is I think she's pritty interesting (haveing flipped through her l/j)

Is banging my head against the wall now.

the Jensen thing was a fit of 'over excitedness' at asylem. But so don't hop on people. (I so totlay shouldn't have used the word 'jumped' here) I don't have a link but the undershirt thing was from an interview with Jensen (again I think it was at asylem?)

It may be total bs about Jared and I don't know where I read it. But it surounded the creation con in TX (and that woudl suck - you come home and someone is saying they are gonna kill you)

OK that makes sence. I keep trying to write a story about demons and angels (and how being posseed by an angel woudl be jsut as bad as a demon) so it's normal for me to be looking for demon stuff.

You never struck me as a demon person (unles you cound Tengu as demons - but I don't. Oh and I just read a book wiht Tengu is it. I kept meaningn to say something to you about that... it was called Tinker but Wren Spencer.)
