Yes, people can post disagreement w/ others' opinions but when they start calling them names (like silly or maybe worse) then that to me and many others is unacceptable.
Oh, get over yourself. Honestly, if the best you can find (and several people just repeated it, keying off my post) is SILLY, the persecution complex just doesn't fly. "calling them names", "unacceptable" ? Come on.
At the very least, one of you could have had the decency to actually quote my post. But then you'd have seen that I called the BOYCOTT (and reasoning behind it) silly, not any poster. But that doesn't play into the persecution as well, and can't very well use THAT to justify wanting to strike back at the other side, huh?
I'll repeat it, so it gets across: Thought it was SILLY to boycott Full Circle (and books following) because you're Janeway fans. Had you been reading them instead of formenting a boycott, you'd have seen that Janeway did better in that book than she'd done in YEARS. Hell, she was even alive for a good chunk of it, albeit in flashback sequences. Like I said, it felt like claiming to love someone, and blowing off their wake. You were making the right noises about loving the character, but skipped out on her big moment, and a few books that really showed how important to the rest of the crew she was. You know, the thing you were saying you wanted...
That, and thinking that an extremely small boycott would even get noticed by TPTB. Your right, I guess, but no impact. Books actually went on an uptick, if I recall the news correctly, so if you want to say your impact was felt, it was in that the uptick wasn't as large as it could have been (but still overwhelmingly positive). Add in that it turns out that half the people making boycott claims turn out to have been buying and/or reading these books anyway, and, well....
Silly seems to fit, IMO.
And again, read the afterward for TET. Kristen went out of her way to make the statement that she brought Janeway back for creative reasons, and NOT because of any internal or external pressures. You're trying to equate what you did to what happened, and the author herself went out of her way to explicitly state that that wasn't the case...
