guideline for those outraged and sickened by tonight’s GOT:
- cancel your hbo subscription, and urge your friends to do the same. over the phone if that’s something you’re okay with, so you can tell the person processing your order (if you get one and not a robot) exactly why you are quitting. otherwise, fill in the comment box on the online form.
- the list of hbo executives is here. for their email it is firstname.lastname@example.org. or you can write a hard copy letter to HBO, 1100 Avenue of the Americas, Attn: Consumer Affairs, New York, NY 10036, or you can call at 212-512-1208.
- BE POLITE. i cannot stress this enough. i know we are raging, i know we’re upset. DO NOT SEND DEATH THREATS OR OBSCENE/PROFANE MATERIAL. BE PROFESSIONAL AND PREPARED TO DISCUSS YOUR CONCERNS MATURELY IF/WHEN YOU REACH A PERSON. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY CHANCE TO JUST DISMISS US AS RANDOM ANGRY INTERNET PEOPLE. MAKE IT CLEAR WHY THIS IS NOT OKAY.
- install knowanon – you can find it here. that way if people are sending you hateful or triggering messages on anon about this, you can expose them, report them to tumblr, and block them.
- likewise, report and block anyone posting wank in the sansa or game of thrones tags. do not engage with them, do not take them on – just report and block. that easy.
- engage on your social media networks about this. post it to facebook, post it to twitter, post it to jezebel or motherjones or wherever you spend your time. send the site editors an email. get yourself heard. you are not powerless and you do not have to settle for this. sansa stark deserves better, and so do all of you. if you are triggered or sickened or anything in particular by this, my inbox is here for you. i am a safe haven for this. i am just a person on the internet but i care about you.
the north remembers, and the north will never forgive.
