Well hell

So, over on a Jeff Hardy community (that I was a member of until about five minutes ago), a big kerfuffle going on.

Apparently, the mods (only one of who I think I've ever seen post) aren't happy about the level of activity on the comm.  As in, there's too much of it.

Picspams are now to be done on a rigid schedule, and you have to get approval to do one.

POTD are no longer POTD, they are  POTPDWNOPABP (Pic Of The Predetermined Days When No Other Pics Are Being Posted).

Likewise, Caption This counts as a pic, thus preventing any other pic from being posted.

Apparently, they don't like pics, particularly since they seem to have seen some of these pics before and object to the repeats.

They've also gone off the brain about the laughing commentary about how much we'd all love to jump Jeff's bones and how sexy he is. 

This is because one of them is apparently a rape victim and finds the use of that word in a joking context offensive.  And that's certainly understandable - but Jesus wept, why didn't she come out and stomp on that the first time it was said, which by my recollection was months ago?  I mean, if it's offensive, it's offensive and you want to stop it the first time you see it!

The other reason they're offended by the rampant fangirling is because they don't think Jeff would like to see that if he was to visit the comm.

Are you fuckin' kidding me?

For starters, having seen a few eps of The Hardy Show, I think Jeff would be more of a fan of the "lusty fangirls having a good time" kind of a comm than some serious ass shrine to, and I quote, "a 31 year old athlete".

And second - who the fuck honestly maintains a community devoted to being a fan of someone in the hopes that they will see it and be impressed?  Um, what are they, 12?  "Community" implies shared spirit and fun, not "this are serious business".

And then, hot on the heels of this massive rules regimen they've seen fit to impose, they've kicked off the new world order with a discussion post on . . . how Jeff's Swanton bomb has essentially gone to shit.

Oh yeah, that's really gonna impress the man if he should stumble across the comm on the 'net!

Pity that pair of morons didn't think to insist that we post that we not only "read and understood" but would actually put up with their ridiculous new ideas!!

and omg!! we were saying the exact same thing this morning!! i said "jeff's a freak. he'd love this shit!" lmfao!! angelsdee said the same thing about having seen episodes of the hardy show and c'mon give us a break!! i completely agree that he'd love us. we speak our mind and tell it like it is. and i also said about how now all of a sudden they're like oh shit..gotta cover our asses now and post something, hence the lame "discussion post" about how jeff has gotten decidedly sloppy in his swanton as of late. um, ok. yeah, he'd just loooove that!! lol

Hey ladies.
I was linked here by a friend and was told that I'd get a good laugh out of this douchebaggery. I did. I thank you all for that.

I am all for this new community you guys will have going. If it means you guys will stop posting at Whisper, then rock the fuck on.

They've also gone off the brain about the laughing commentary about how much we'd all love to jump Jeff's bones and how sexy he is.
Yes because obviously raping and commenting on someone's attractiveness is the same thing. That totally didn't fly over your head. *applause*

This is because one of them is apparently a rape victim and finds the use of that word in a joking context offensive. And that's certainly understandable - but Jesus wept, why didn't she come out and stomp on that the first time it was said, which by my recollection was months ago? I mean, if it's offensive, it's offensive and you want to stop it the first time you see it!
Excuse her for having a life and not constantly monitoring every sentence in the community. And does it really matter when the subject was brought up?

For starters, having seen a few eps of The Hardy Show, I think Jeff would be more of a fan of the "lusty fangirls having a good time" kind of a comm than some serious ass shrine to, and I quote, "a 31 year old athlete".
I don't know how Jeff would feel about 15 year old girls having urges to violate him. Maybe send him some snailmail and get his thoughts on the matter.

And then, hot on the heels of this massive rules regimen they've seen fit to impose, they've kicked off the new world order with a discussion post on . . . how Jeff's Swanton bomb has essentially gone to shit.
God Forbid! Some discussion and critique and not the usual "omg must lick the wrestler!"

Yes, it may be "their" community, but since neither of them were really involved, it is fairer to say that the community belongs to the active members.
LOL @ this. Someone needs to find the "previous" button and skip back to a time when the community was good and see how involved we really were.

Sincerely,
- Jewish Nazi.

Lady, there's no point me responding to any of your points, because you have a right to your opinions.

The same way I have a right to mine, expressed in my own journal. So you can keep your disparaging comments to yourself in future, thanks.

I've got no intention of posting on your comm in future, because it's gone from a welcoming place to one that's completely the opposite.

iunno, i logged in and saw there'd been some sort of fiasco and was all O.o

-laughs-

It was apparently quite the hotbed during our last night. By the time I got up this morning, it was dying down a bit.

And then in the space of time it took me to go do my grocery shopping, poof! The LJ of the mod with attitude and the post in question was gone.

If you can't stand the heat, I guess . . . ;-)

That is exactly what I said! How can there be a schedule to posting on a Comm? It is unheard of. Sloane replied back to me but before I woke up, she quit LJ and handed over the Comm to Sin.

*shrugs shoulders*

This is the type of shit I get in my other fandoms - not a Jeff Comm. WTF?

Well it has been an interesting day, hasn't it? I'm pissed that sleep finally claimed me after so many days and I passed out and missed the rest of this. I actually passed out before Jeff's match last night. *cusses up a fucking storm*

I see the links you pointed out further up in this thread are gone. And a mole sent someone over here. I'm looking forward to a Comm that we can post fic, vids, and pics whenever we want. I have 3 Comms on LJ and while I believe in some ground rules, I couldn't imagine telling people you can only post this on this day.

I'm being forward and adding you to my flist, babe. Hope you don't mind. Oh, and I'm the 41 year old not 15. Love your icon of Steve! Makes me want to go knock on his door.

Damn! Don't they replay Smackdown in the States? Swear to god, they play it like five times on the channel that carries it down under!

Yeah, "someone" took their bat and ball and went home . . . just when it was getting interest. Translation: just when the heat was revving up and things were gonna get ugly!

I'm being forward and adding you to my flist, babe. Hope you don't mind. Oh, and I'm the 41 year old not 15.

Babe! I'm so adding you back - we like-minded perverts should stick together ;-) And yeah, I'm not 15 - hell, I ain't even 41. 46 and proud of it, even if I never act my age!!

Love your icon of Steve! Makes me want to go knock on his door.

There are times when only Stone Cold can express my feelings . . . this was one of them!
