Some of you may hate me for writing this, but it has to be written.

I have noticed the twitter war that happened today, and though I usually stay away from this kind of stuff, I decided to understand what this is all about, all because the girl who runs the site is from Poland just like me. I thought I'd be able to get to her, or at least get to know her opinion since there would be no language barrier.

We had a chat (if you can call @-ing at each other a chat), and what I got out of it was pretty darn enlightening.

She cares greatly for her site, works hard to make it run smoothly, and also does English to Polish translations. All by herself, without any help. This site is her baby. She takes every single comment and every single tweet personally.

We all know she's a Huddy shipper, a huge one. We know she likes to show it any way she can, even if it may be insulting to people who are not intersted in her personal opinion.

Mind you, in every fandom and in every pairing there are people for whom what they believe in is practically sacrosanct. They can come out as a bit too obsessed, a bit too serious.

When you see such a person, stay away from them at all costs. Don't taunt them, don't call them names, DON'T ADD FUEL TO THE FIRE. You're just making things worse. Haters gonna hate. It's only a show.

And if you really, really feel like you should say something, act mature.

We may hate what she wrote about St Doris because she had no right to do that. But that doesn't give any other person the right to bash and hate on her, call her a bitch and several other quite "interesting" names. By doing that you show that you're just like her. And we can do better.

Everybody's entitled to an opinion, even her. The only thing she did wrong is that she hasn't as of yet realized that she has a lot of influence because of the popularity of her site, and by that, her Twitter account. It's not what she wrote that is wrong, it's how she's chosen to do this.

Feel free to express your opinion in the comments, but before you hit the 'post' button, think twice. Trust me, life's easier that way.

Posting here 'cause it got deleted after an hour on H/W comm. Oh well.
