The wank this week has been, interesting. Criticism on fanfics is not... silly... but it seems to be that some people are unusually sensitive to something that is suppose to be done for enjoyment. The fic, not the crit. 

Having seen it from both sides, I tend to stick with the, 'Don't say it if you can't take it' stance, which seems to be a 3rd POV/stance. Personally, I don't leave reviews if I don't like the fic. I don't bother trying to tell people why or what I don't like, 'cause I spend that time doing something else, like finding something else to read. If I do like the fic, I'm just gonna say that I liked it, and if I like the style, ask the author to write more/continue the story, etc. 

If a person is going to write a constructive criticism/review, that person should be prepared for... not retaliation, but for their own time in the hotseat. Metaphorically, Don't shoot if you're not prepared to be shot at.

All the same, thanks to all involved for making this week interesting! (You know who you are) It's a wonderful distraction from all the Real Life stuff I'm going through.
