meta rec - why is there not more shunning by poisontaster

While not directly about the last few weeks of stunning lapses of intelligence (IE OSBP, Kristallnacht most recently), this is an interesting conversation about how fans deal with events, people, things that cross our lines (sexism, racism, etc).

Why Is There Not More Shunning? by poisontaster

I'm not going to quote, because I don't want to remove anything from context. There are some interesting conversations and commentary going on in terms of shunning, dogpiling, the whys, the ethics and the various ways all these things intersect.

From a purely intellectual standpoint (for whatever value assigned to my ability to be objective about the behavior of my tribe, so to speak), I find this utterly fascinating. Personally, it feels like reminder, warning, and question all at once. What it's asking, though, I'm not sure yet. I'll get back to you on that.

Short version: read.
