This Has To Stop!  
Before I get into the subject of this post, I'd like to wish my friend radioprecious a very Happy Birthday today. I hope you have a wonderful day and that all your wishes come true! *hugs*

Okay, I've just found out that a dear friend of mine (sweetgirl7808) has been getting a lot of hate mail and negative criticism for an icon post she made in response to last week's Supernatural episode. Normally I am not the kind of person to get in the middle of something like this, but I feel I must express my complete and utter digust that people would act this way. Everyone has a right to their own opinion and expression of that opinion, and it's not right for other people to make them feel bad about it. Can't you just choose to ignore it and move on without having to be mean? Because of what has happened she says she will no longer make SPN arts and this really saddens me because I think her work is some of the best on the internet. :(

She is a decent, kind and generous person and I can't stress enough how this type of behavior must STOP! She did not deserve to be treated the way she has and neither does anyone else. People need to get a life, skip over things they don't agree with and get over themselves. Manu, if you read this, I love you and I'm so sorry this had to happen to you. I hope you will reconsider your decision about not making anymore SPN arts, because there are SO many people that enjoy them. Don't let those people that were rude to you win! Show them that they can't hurt you and stand up for what you want to post. *HUGS xinfinity*

I'll be back later with my review for episode 6x02.

Happy Birthday to You

I think I might know the post you're talking about. I thought the icons were pretty funny. You're right - it's wrong when people get all negative over something they don't agree with. People take fandom waaaay to seriously. I actually kept waiting for someone to post an icon of either Sam's Charger or Dean's Truck with the caption 'Not the 'Pala!' or something...

Some people just need to chill out. Hugs to you and your friend.

I agree, people take the fandom way too seriously! Thanks for understanding. ♥

Her icons were kind of tasteless and rude, in my opinion. *shrug* If she didn't like the episode she should have written a review of the episode and f-locked it. Problem solved.

Not trying to be mean here, just stating how I felt about the icons. I just didn't like them and felt they were totally unnecessary. Defriend me if you must.
Kristin: Jared » CbtDkristypadalecki on October 2nd, 2010 08:08 pm (UTC)
I respect your opinion 100% hon, and don't want to cause any animosity between us. I would never defriend you over this!

I guess I just wish if people didn't care for something, they'd move on and not have to waste time making mean comments.

You're so welcome!

I know, can't people read? I realize some of the icons might have been offensive to people, but why can't they just scroll by them?

*hugs* to your friend. Drama is so unfortunate...
Kristin: Autumn » Deer/Treeskristypadalecki on October 3rd, 2010 04:18 am (UTC)
Thanks. This definitely is so unfortunate. :(

What?? I know I've seen one or two people complaining about those icons, but I didn't know she was getting hate mail. That's just awful. :( No one deserves that. That would be like us getting hate mail for saying we didn't like Sam's S4 hair, if you know what I mean. ;)

Seriously, it makes me embarrassed for fandom when people will go to that extreme and flame someone. If you don't like what they have to say or offer, ignore it and move on. For what it's worth, I've been getting someone commenting on my review posts for about a year now seeming to take offense to the fact that I don't hate Dean. Honestly, no one's asking you to read or even comment on my review. I really don't get people sometimes. *shakes head*

Good on you for sticking up for her, Kristin! I love her art and I think it's sad that she's not going to make any more because of some inconsiderate people. :(
Kristin: Jared » Tatiana™kristypadalecki on October 3rd, 2010 04:21 am (UTC)
I know, it's gotten way out of hand and it makes me so sad. :(

I can't understand why people just don't ignore something they don't like and move forward? It's just sad that people have nothing better to do with their time than to flame other people. I'm sorry that someone keeps making rude comments on your SPN reviews too.

Thanks. I wasn't too sure if I should make this post, but I really felt bad for her and wanted her to know that I was behind her 100%.

That sucks really bad! I always really liked her stuff too!
I don't know why people have to be so mean about things. There is a way to express an opinion and not get hateful with it, but also simply not commenting at all.
I personally have really fallen out of the SPN fandom. There was always so much negativity. I would watch an episode and get excited about something, then get online and see everyone complain about it. Its just so tiring and annoying.

Anyway, I hope she eventually comes back, there was a lot of fans that really loved her work!

I know! It's a real shame.

Aww, I hope you will come back to the SPN fandom. The first episode wasn't the greatest premiere, but it was still really good, and the second episode was AWESOME! ♥ It's unfortunate that there is so much negativity in this fandom, but I just can't stay away from it.

I hope she'll decide to stay and keep making her beautiful graphics too! ♥

*hugs back*

I just looked at her icon post and think it's pretty funny actually. She actually touched on things I was thinking but didn't wanna say! That's awful that's she's getting all this hate over it! She made it clear at the top as far as what the spirit of the post was! Besides, it's HER journal, and she has the right to say or do whatever she wants!

And y'know, I think that using her thoughts and turning them into something creative is alot better than some rant about the show that I'm sure MANY of the haters would have wrote instead! Shoot, I'm even guilty of ranting over entertainment-related stuff. I wish I COULD turn my negativity it into creativity!

I do hope she won't stop making graphics, b/c they're SO awesome!
Kristin: Spn (1x16) » O_O!Samkristypadalecki on October 3rd, 2010 04:31 am (UTC)
IKR? It's so ridiculous that people get that crazy over things like this. It would help if they could actually read too! She explained everything at the top of the post. Since when is it a crime to express yourself on your own journal? You should be able to say whatever you want without having to worry about getting all kinds of hate for it. :(

I agree! I wish I could turn my negativity into creativity too.

I hope so too. It'll be just a shame if she stops making her beautiful SPN graphics.

Hate mail over a television show? Really??? :/
Yeah, I understand people feeling protective over a show they love but to waste time getting into fights with someone that just happens to have a different opinion to theirs just doesn't make any sense to me.
Kristin: Jared » b/w Fredric Reshew™kristypadalecki on October 3rd, 2010 05:37 pm (UTC)
I know, it's crazy! I couldn't agree more.
Manu: polar_hugsweetgirl7808 on October 3rd, 2010 06:27 am (UTC)
I'm totally overwhelmed by your post sweetheart! You can't even imagine how much this means to me. *hugs you tightly*

I know you're right and maybe I should make some ass-kicking icons from the last episode. But truth is I don't have the muse for it anymore. I will make arts for my own layout ('cause I can't stand my actual header), but I will not make something sharable anymore. I just can't. I liked the actual episode very much. There were a lot of good scenes. But when I thought about making some icons out of it, I got a really bad feeling....

Thanks so much for being such an awesome friend!!

Kristin: Spn (3x11) » Sam/Dean Hugkristypadalecki on October 3rd, 2010 05:40 pm (UTC)
I just felt I had no choice but to defend you, because I love you and your graphics so much! *hugs back*

Please don't up on making SPN arts, hon. Maybe your muse is temporarily bruised but it will return. Don't let those nasty people and their rudeness stop you from creating! If you read anyone else's responses on this post, practically everyone loves your work and doesn't want you to stop. I'm sure there are many more people that enjoy it than don't. ♥

I'm always here to support you and everyone else on my f-list. *HUGS*
Elinacanyon_deye on October 3rd, 2010 10:31 am (UTC)
:/ She's definitely one of the best iconmakers I know.

Oh no! What did sweetgirl make? She always makes nice arts, I know that. But then, I have this friend, she writes J2 fics and people attacked her also. I don't know. Fics are supposed to be not real, right? And those people felt offended by her story. *shakes head*
Kristin: Spn (3x03) » “I Lost My Shoe”kristypadalecki on October 4th, 2010 06:47 pm (UTC)
Just some text icons expressing her thoughts about the s6 premiere. Too many people took offense and sent her hate mail, so she will no longer make SPN arts. :(

Gee, what's going on? I haven't seen any of the new stuff yet, but wow... fans.
Kristin: J² » 100th Episode Partykristypadalecki on October 4th, 2010 06:49 pm (UTC)
It's a shame so many people in this fandom have to be so critical. She was just expressing her thoughts through art. If you don't care for it just skip over it!
