This Is It

You know what is love? It's loving something so much, you always try to see a positive side. That's me about Smallville.
I'm not saying that everyone should be like that, I know it's not a perfect show with perfect writing, and if you know me for more than 5 seconds, you know I have my fair share of problems with the show and I don't blame anyone that has a lot of problems with the show, that's love too, you don't have to agree with everything.
Why I'm saying all that? Because I'm tired of some "fans" who say they love the show, but won't stop bashing it. It's not specific about any part of the fandom, it's everyone. If you hate everything that is happening on the show, why the hell do you still watch it?

I stopped mixing with fandom years ago when all the hate and the fights got much bigger than the love for the show, which was supposed to be what united all the fans.

And on a even serious matter, why all the hate? Honestly? I hate pretty much all the Smallville fans. They can't argue their opinions without saying that Erica Durance is a slut or Allison Mack is fat. The most recent war was about the TV Guide Cover and Damian Holbrook. Am I happy Allison is not on the cover? Hell no. I'm going to go all Rambo on the TV Guide people? Hell no again. And I absolutely won't attack anyone just because she's not on the cover. People should think about the people factor, do you think it's easy to find a time to get everyone on the set for a photoshoot? Even more someone who is not even a series regular anymore?* And where the show is right now, I understand the decisiond to feature only TW and ED on the show, they're Superman and his lady.

*I know she has 10 years of history and 200 episodes, but Allison Mack is not a series regular anymore. Like Michael Rosenbaum, he is really important to the show, but not a series regular either, but I don't see anyone bitching about the fact he's not on the cover.

But you know what I hate even more? It's the generalization. You don't see anyone saying "that AM fan is crazy", "that ED fan is crazy", they always say that all the fans are crazy. And if anyone says anything they disagree about anyone on the show, it's war! Not liking someone on the show, doesn't mean you need to bash the actress.

I will always say that Kristin Kreuk is not a good actress and I don't like the way she played Lana, always whispering, and I never liked Lana, that's not a secret. Do I hate her? No, I think she is amazing and adorable, but I don't like the way she played Lana. I think Alaina Huffman oversells herself, and she should tone down a bit, but I would never personally offend her, because I don't know who she is as a person or even how she is outside the Smallville world.

So, why everything anyone says always need to turn into a fandom war? If you say something about an actor on the show, even something respectful, it's bashing and you get heat for 100 crazy fans and they blame all the fans of the character/actress/actor. And even more, why all the nasty remarks?

I don't know if everyone heard about how Erica didn't wanted to sign something for a guy who said bad things about her. This is the internet, she can read what people say about her or someone can say to her what people said about her, and that doesn't go just for Erica, that goes for everyone on the show. Erica Durance is not Lois Lane, Allison Mack is not Chloe Sullivan, Tom Welling is not Clark Kent, Justin Hartley is not Oliver Queen, Cassidy Freeman is not Tess Mercer, they are Erica, Allison, Tom, Justin and Cassidy, they are people just like us, people who will get hurt over something bad you say about them.

So, stop with all the hate about the show, the characters, the actors. You don't like it? I'm sure you're smart enough to find a way to say that without being offensive and I really hope everyone was capable to see your comment as just an honest opinion and not bashing.

I honestly don't know what to do. I whish I could just get the hell away of the fandom again, but this time I have a lot of people that I love and I can't really walk away from. So I think that for now, I will just learn to close my eyes.
