There's Something About this Fandom...
The reason why I created Fassinating Fassbender was because I wasn't getting much from the fan community(ies) pre-FF, and I sensed attitudes and behaviors that just weren't my cup of tea. Nothing terrible, but, it just wasn't my thing. What we have in the FF community is something very special, unique, fun, and supportive. And I want to keep it that way. So please don't be hurt or offended if my actions affect you in my doing pest control. I now know how to deal with future troll issues at Pinterest so that it doesn't affect current pins there. If you regularly pin and/or visit the FF Pinterest board and you see something strange, please let me know immediately. If you pin something there, and some troll comes trolling by and make a strange or out of place comment, you do have the ability to delete their comment. You don't have to ask me for permission or anything. That is YOUR pin, and only you have the ability to delete suspicious comments made under that pinned image. Pinterest allows us all to write about things and comment on images that are not suitable for the blog, basically, we're more free to let loose and be silly and cute if we want.
Moving forward, all that I do for the Fassinating Fassbender community is for US, whether you want to participate in a charity fundraiser, or buy a coffee/tea mug from the Zazzle store, or buy a new Keep Calm shirt - this is for US and lurking supporters, not haters. Haters hate, they don't buy cool FF accessories, and they sure as hell ain't going to give $5 to Autistic children or support paralyzed bikers for Michael's birthday. There's a lot of negativity, immaturity, anti-social attitudes, favoritism, mind games, and gossipy bs that has no place in the FF community, and I will remain vigilant to keep that stuff away from here. With that all said, I believe that the haters will have a pathetic reason to renew their hate this summer, so just be prepared and continue to support each other in the FF Community.
