"Hello, my name is Bob and I'm a DLaholic. I get a serious case of the hives everytime I dare to read the threads. My mind's eye burns as I read speculations as to what Dom and Elijah "do" when they aren't together. I get the willies when I read about Sean Astin being an EVAL bastard. I gnash my teeth in rage as I read about Sir Ian selling out. I boggle as I read theories about THE PR. Yet I cannot stop! I go back time and time again!"
Does that sound familiar?
Are you also drawn to the looniness that was the Prancing Pony section of DL and what DLR is nowadays?
Do you feel alone in a sea of insanity?
Well, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Come to a DL_Anon meeting and meet others just like you! Share your stories and be comforted by others that have also been sucked into the insanity.
Remember, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Free tinfoil hats, coffee, and cookies are given at every meeting!
New people are encouraged to lurk for a while and get a feel of this place before they post - it will be easier for them to not provoke anger in their fellow members by indulging in Way-Too-OT posting and shit like that.
They're also invited to read this post , particularly the comments on it, as it is where we discussed guidelines and such: it demonstrates quite well what the general consensus is and how we deal with things.
The purpose of dl_anon? To point and laugh at DL/PP->DL-R and Tinhattery. It is not your personal journal or soapbox, nor are we (for the most part) fannishly obsessive over the guys.
Members here come from all parts of fandom, and some are not part of the LotRiPS or LotR fandom at all-- they just enjoy the wankiness and the meta of the whole Tinhat phenomenon. Some OT is usually tolerated, mostly in the comments, as the fun also comes from icon-lovin' and bonding for example; but massively OT posts are discouraged.
When an OT post turns into a comment-fest restricted to two or three posters, it's time for them to take it to email or chat and stop spamming the community.
Also, this is not a place to push personal agendas. Whether you think Elijah Wood is gay, bi, straight, asexual, or you don't give a fuck, that's not what we're here to discuss. It's all about the pointing and laughing.
Some of us are happy that in mocking Tinhats for their most contradictory/stupid/irrational claims, we have 'turned' people from Tinhats' places and welcomed them in our midst. I'm happy about this too-- still, the way a crusade about Elijah's or Dom's or Viggo's sexuality shouldn't be led from here, this is no place for an anti-tinhat crusade either. We point and mock and laugh and disconstruct, yes; but some of us do not care at all if Tinhattery ever ceases to plague the 'Net or not.
I, anatsuno, think of it this way: the Tinhat thing crumbling would deprive me of a daily dose of entertainment, and that'd be sad. But that might be only me.
There are some other places you can go where people are actively engaged in campaigning against the tinhats and have made it their goal. We recommend you check out the Rusty Spork community over on LJ and the corresponding website, Sanity, Please for a gathering of this sort.
Basically, activism of any kind is not specifically the purpose of dl_anon-- which doesn't mean we don't each have our opinions and causes, of course, and sometimes they will end up being discussed. Just don't expect the crowd to be friendly based on your beliefs, or to be acquired to your cause already--that would be setting yourself up for disappointment and possibly offering yourself to be snarked at by members of a differing opinion.
Finally, a friendly piece of advice: When Upset, Step Away From Teh Keyboard Or Be Prepared For Snark.
home resting place momentary perch of the snark.
(this quote from soleta)
and as a closing note, for the thick-skulled out there who need everything spelled out :
No, we are NOT nice. No, we are NOT the happy, love and light alternative to DLR. Yes, we DO eat our own if they wear a kitty suit with an "eat me" sign and chicken and meat hanging off their arms. Yes, we share the fandom_wank spirit. kthxdie.
