Domain name idiocy

Wheee. I just got yelled at by multiple people today, because I put bids in on the furrymuck.com/.net/.org domain name auction on eBay. I just wanted to do the right thing, and buy the damn things for the Wizards of FurryMUCK.

I had written a rant here that explained and bitched about the idiocy of the issue. I deleted it because I KNOW I'd get screamed at for having written it, too. Feh.

Sturgeon's law says that 90% of everything is crap. Theodore Sturgeon was an optimist.

Ignore angry twits who do not contribute

Why anyone would bitch about somebody buying a domain name is beyond me. It's your money, it's a legal transaction, and you have more claim to the name than most furs I know as you've been there so long. If they are so concerned about the domain name then tell them to get away from their PS2, get a job, and try to win the *(&^ing auction themselves!

Barring that, just tell em to have a coke and a smile :)

Sorry. Got a bit grumpy there. Anyhow, just ignore the naysayers, unless they be equines in which case they'd be neighsayers.

Welcome to furry fandom...
Revar-

Welcome to the wonderful world of furry fandom, where whatever you do, you get flamed for.

I'm sorry that they turned on you. Politics happen. LOTS of politics happen.

Politics? In fandom? Shocking!

Two best lines I've heard about dealing with that kinda stuff : "This, too, shall pass" and "Don't let the bastards get you down". :)

KFM!
