So, the anonymity of the virtual world of the internet is becoming more and more fascinating to me.

Are there people out there who think I'm really stupid and so ego-driven that I can be fooled?

Undoubtedly.

Is it crazy to miss the friends who were invented only to spy on you and make fun of you in someone's evil little circle?

(No crazier than it is to go to all that trouble in the first place.)

That just sounds sick. *hugs*

It's strange, that's for sure. And really strange because it takes a lot of work, and I can't see how it's worth it. Get a life, I say.

I can just imagine chunks of my private emails flying back and forth through cyberspace. Hope they were entertaining! (But I bet they were actually a bit boring . . .)

*shakes head* Unreal.

People do that??? *blinks in amazement* Well, that gives the attitude "they either love me or hate me" a whole new twist. No, I wouldn't think it crazy to miss them. It's fun to interact with people, no matter who they are or how they feel about you. That's my attitude anyway. One has to be truly vicious to drive me away if I find someone interesting.

I've had a couple vicious experiences in another fandom, I must say. And it would be hard to call the interaction "fun," but it was definitely interesting.

OMG, ask me about The Phantom Menace fandom sometime. Oh wait, DON'T! LOL. What a freaky ass place THAT was. At least, the corner of it I occupied. See my comment below about freaks who sneak around trying to spy on you years after some dumb fandom drama.

I ended up leaving fandom all together. It got to be too much.

That sucks.

I can't imagine someone doing that. Don't they have anything BETTER to do with their time? (Of course, I'd love to have more free time, but then I'd have loads of other stuff to do if I had it. Anyway...)

Sorry you miss those not-really-people friends, though. That sucks, MM.

Hugs and Love,

Funny, isn't it? To 'miss' people who never really existed. I guess as long as they're real to you, they're real, right? Somehow it doesn't seem to matter that I know when those emails were written that person was probably sitting there grinning, thinking 'she'll eat this up'!

Wtf? Makes me wish I was Chief of Detectives. People are nuts.
18th-Oct-2005 05:35 am (UTC)
Aren't they, though?

Oh dear! Are you suffering trollage?

I've had some "fake" people come and go on my lj. Freaker outer's from some long dead drama from five years ago. If they're on my journal now, there's really nothing much for them to see, since I never mention them at all except to laugh at how stupid they are to still be looking, LOL!

They're sad, really. HUGS! Don't let them get to you! If you need a flame warrior, let me know!

HUGS

I certainly am, but not here at LJ, thank goodness. It's been at Yahoo lists and private email. I've gotten suspicious of every private feedback I get, actually, especially if it's in a certain fandom that involves Men and Elves!

Hard to believe that it can go on for months and months. Where do people find the time and interest?

Trust me, if they think supposedly sweet emails from supposed 'fans' of my writing will drive me out of fandom, they're mistaken. The nasty comments and derisive emails didn't, so why should these?

(That icon alone should scare a few people off. I may need to borrow it!)

I don't get it. Why would somebody do that?
18th-Oct-2005 05:39 am (UTC)
God only knows, Bobby. It's hard to imagine hating someone that much. But then I don't understand vandalism either. Pointless wastes of time to try to put people down and destroy things that aren't hurting anyone.

Don't even get me started! We both know the only person on earth who could possibly want to go after both you and me with a sock puppet! And it's the same person who wrote us each (separately) vituperative emails (which she has much more of a talent for than writing fanfic, btw).

Y'know, I hope they just keep sending more and more of these evil little clones our way. It lets us know we're certainly more interesting than we thought we were. (Still imagining what's-her-face taking my one and only LOTR fanfic to school with her and passing it around her classes, like she claimed she did, in order to motivate her slacker friends to go vote.)

This is starting to stir a memory, and I'm shaking my head in disbelief.

Wtf?
