RE: weirdass jensenvention.com crap  
I don't really know what's going on with it all, but it seems like the site runners were more than a touch ignorant naive regarding how their site content was viewed. If the questions of your "mean" or "hate[ful]" intent towards Jensen were sent in frequently enough to require an answer in your own faq (select text of which posted here) I think you should have been re-evaluating. And maybe looking up the definition of "satire"? That last is an actual question because i've only seen one of their videos, which wasn't satirical or mean, but just plain... well, dumb. It had more of - who I presume is - the site-runner than Jensen/promotion-for-Jensen. Whether legal action was too big a statement or not, it's how he chose to deal with the issue.

Now deal with the consequences of a questionable website and move the hell on.

The thing I hate most about Supernatural fandom, and the main reason I'm pretty much out of it now, is the amount of unbelievably immature and inexplicable wank that goes on. For whatever reason, everyone seems to think that everything that goes on is their business. I get having an opinion, hell, I have loads of them, but for wars to break out... GAH. Microcosm for society anyone? y/y?


I'm not exactly sure what my point was for posting all that... Apparently I just felt it needed to be said.

ps- omg! finally a reason to use this icon! \O/

I agree w/ everything you said here. I'm so tired of the wank, and really, I'm not sure why they're so surprised by this. Hurt and upset, I can understand (I probably would be, too), but I think the extent that they're taking this is getting out of hand. There's no need to be calling Jensen an asshole or whatever just cause he was doing what he felt he needed to. The more they cry out that they're being treated unfairly, the less sympathy I have for them, cause they're only making the situation worse w/ continuing to fan the flames.

Agreed. I think the whole thing is silly, TBQH. Why they would feel that it was their duty to promote Jensen is beyond me as well. The whole thing just reeks asshatery.

oooh I'll go read what you've said now; but yeah. agreed. people are dumb. *headdesk*

hahaha it is, unfortunately. The only difference is there's no acting justice group. Emphasis (in some cases) on acting ;)

I am so out of the SPN fandom right now, I have no idea what you're talking about. I always meant to get back into it, buut I don't think that's happening anytime soon.

That being said, I liked how .... relatively non-wanky the SPN fandom started out as. And then it just exploded. Sigh.

I'm pretty out of it too, but I saw a post on my flist and decided to check it out and was dismayed and disgusted by the whole thing. Staying away from fandom sounds like a great idea.

And I know exactly what you mean. I yearn for those days before the morons decided they loved the show too. Sigh. It used to be so much fun.

And now (of course), it's on fandom_wank. Every time I think I should comment on a fandom post, I always get paranoid about ending up on there (although ... I kind of have).

But now that the SPN fandom is officially crazy, I like to stay in my invisible little corner of the internet, completely oblivious to all the drama. I find I'm much happier that way - no headdesking necessary.

idg what's going on... the name "jensenvention" sounds like a con for Jensen? O_O

oh wellz. it's done and over with.

but tbh, lots of fandoms have fandom wars (ie. weir vs carter in sga)... it's scary but also interesting that people are so passionate about these characters. fru.

No, I think it was meant to be like "intervention" but I've not a clue really. It was also referred to as PETJA? It was a fan run promotional site or something (it's been shut down). Jensen's "people" found out about it and the site-runners were served with a legal request to take down everything. My understanding is that they were attempting to promote him through the use of "satire" but that many people (apparently Jensen included) found it to be insulting to him. They also frequently insinuated that what he'd done thus far with his career was below his skillset. Which could be viewed as insulting as well, especially if he's proud of/liked what he's done in his career so far.

Frankly, why these fans felt it their duty/mandate/right to promote him is beyond me.

I know lots of fandoms have wars, it's so tacky and I'm sure makes the fans look like salivating crazies. I know Kripke recently played a trick on the psycho fangirls by labeling the new female SPN character as a "love interest" just to see them act up.

Oh. How awkward. Some fans are just... too dedicated, I guess. :/ Haha... Jensen's "homies" found out. XD

Fandom wars are lame. Can't we just watch and love? *nods* Go Kripke!! ROFL. There's a new female SPN character? *is so clueless*
