*clears throat*

Dear Stargate Atlantis Fandom,

Shut the fuck up about your goddamn spoilers which aren't even spoilers! Carson is leaving! Jewel Staite is coming on your show! This is OLD NEWS. So if one more person tells me to put up a spoiler cut or change my subject line or my cut wording IMA BUST A NUT! Get the fuck over it!

Thank you.

Fondly yours,
wolfsavard

PS - In the movie Serenity... WASH DIES.

Last time I posted about it I cut it, and people STILL got upset because I said I didn't give a shit about either Carson or Ronon. Sigh, fandom.

Jewel FTW. ♥

Hahaha your icon = awesome. :-) Rodney + Sam the Whale is love.

Oh I'm sorry, that was a spoiler... maybe I should use a tag.

Shit.

It's shadowserenity's. I'm currently writing her a Greenpeace!Rodney AU to say thanks, because the icon is muy muy awesome indeed.

Aie! but you can't cut comments! Seriously though, I refuse to diss over-cautious spoiler cutting, because of y'know, Europeanity and not getting the episodes until the day after they air. (Plus I was embarrassingly late to find out about the Carson spoiler, and posted about it without knowing it was old news.)

Oh no, I'm totally about spoiler cuts and I get it absolutely, but I feel like the big casting stuff has been circulating since like September and waiting until April now for people who are actually waiting for the rest of season 3, (I totally couldn't and it's fantastic), you'd really have to like become and internet recluse to not stumble across anything. I mean the big savecarsonbeckett.com campaign being in people's icons and signatures is kind of a gimme.

We could always spread a rumour that Carson gets written out by getting eaten by Sam the Whale. Rodney would be so torn between his love for Carson and his love for the whales of Atlantis. ...that's a crackfic waiting to happen.

I just needed to rant. I have restrained in using my Jewel Middle Finger icon thus far in the post at sga_noticeboard which I am proud of. Though I think I should've used it when I posted. haha I'm sure even if I'd left Jewels name out of anywhere outside a cut and used that icon, it would've been a freakin' spoiler. :-P

I'm actually with the people who wanted you to cut that, but I can also see why that would be annoying. ... I'm neutral? I'm Switzerland!

People were bashing Jewel for replacing McGillion? That's just ... deeply sad, man.

And I totally listened and slapped a cut on there, because fine I can see that... but someone said there was Serenity spoiler in there (it's totally not a spoiler unless you already know that Wash dies... no one would pick up on it otherwise) and then people were like, well change the title of the post, or change your cut wording. That's when I started to be like ok I'm going to put a cap in someone's ass. But the first cut was no problem, and I felt bad I didn't realize to put it on until I walked into the next room and my roommate was like PUT A CUT ON! ooops.

Seriously? I get that people are not about being spoiled but honestly... that news really has been everywhere. If you don't want to know any of it at this point, you shouldn't be playing on the internet because even fuckin Gateworld had a huge article about Jewel coming to Atlantis and there was no cut tag or anything.

Here's to still hoping this has no way of making it to Fandom_Wank or anything.

I apologize for the more insane members of my fandom... we're not ALL like that, really!

Re: *sigh*
Ahaha, it's okay. I know. I just needed a place to vent and felt it wouldn't go over so well to actually do it on the noticeboard. haha

My roommate, foreverseenstar, is always like "ohhh the fandom is exploding over retarded shit" and I'm always like okay sure whatever. Haha, but now I see it.

Re: *sigh*
*nods* yeah I just vented on my own LJ in a locked post... *SIGH* Half the problem is being caused by the fact that SCIFI isn't airing the new episodes until APRIL and people are trying to stay unspoiled that long (which is stupid but there you go) so natrually there's a lot of potential for stupid crap like what happed on the noticeboard...

Re: *sigh*
Hey, if there's something that we should all be able to agree over it's that SCIFI CHANNEL SUCKS. :D

Re: *sigh*
Oh definitly! There's only two reasons why I watch SciFi Channel - Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis.

Different fandom, same problem.
LOL, I can't even read stuff in the Torchwood community because people are so OMGELEVEN anti-spoiler, like even the hint of an episode NAME is a spoiler, and is ban-worthy. I GET that the show doesn't even air here yet and all, but the fact that someone wears jeans in an episode is not a spoiler.

Re: Different fandom, same problem.
It's like, seriously... no one makes you be involved with the show on the internet, so if you don't want to run the risk of spoilers, stay out of the fandom wank!
