So over the past two days I have been receiving rude anonymous messages from what I suspect to be the same Anon because of the frequency and whatnot. I ignored and deleted the first few messages that I received but after a while the messages continued and I stopped deleting them. Yesterday I received nine messages from this anon declaring their hate for Agent Carter and my wishes that the series be brought to Netflix. The messages are as follows.
So I would like to address whoever has gone out of their way MULTIPLE TIMES to declare their hatred of my beloved show to me. I suspect that all of these messages are from the same person. First of all I cannot fathom why anyone would find this to be a reasonable or even remotely necessary thing for someone to do. I honestly can’t wrap my head around it. I received these messaged throughout the day instead of all at once so this means that this person came back to my inbox time and time again to express their feelings about Agent Carter.
Now I’m not here to pick a fight. I’m not going to argue with what has been said in my ask box. While I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion I also believe that there is a time and a place for everything and for someone to go out of their way to declare their opinions to another in such a rude way in someone else’s inbox is not the time nor place to express those opinions. If there is something that you have an issue with I ask that you take it up with me privately. It is a very cowardly thing to hide behind the cover of the Anonymous option and send hate. I don’t believe that you would send these messages to me with your URL attached. (Please, correct me if I’m wrong..) And if you honestly feel the need to send a message anonymously because it is something that you do not wish to attach your name to because you do no wish to face the consequences of that message then you should not bother to send it at all.
And the thing that confuses me so much about all of this is the point of it all. Like what did you possibly hope to achieve from this? Did you honestly think you could change my opinion? Did you think you could convince me to stop supporting the show? Please tell me what you were trying to accomplish here. Because I do not understand what you were going for at all. This pisspoor attempt at harassment was completely unnecessary waste of your time. There was no reason for you to go out of your way an leave rude messages in my (or anyone else’s) inboxes. And if you really feel the need to continue with this shit I ask that you reconsider your actions, log off and find a productive way to spend your time.
Tumblr is not about spreading hate. And if you truly feel that you need to be rude to others then maybe this is not the place for you. There is no good reason to say something rude to someone else because of their fandom opinions. You may have not enjoyed Agent Carter, but I did. And I will continue to support it. No amount of anon hate is going to stop me either. If it bothers you so much you can unfollow me, blacklist the tags and get over it (to quote one of your earlier messages). There is absolutely no need to be rude to someone over a television show.
So, Rude Anon, wherever you are, I wish you the best with your future endeavors as long as you take them away from my blog and my ask box. And I ask that you refrain from leaving these messages in anyone else’s ask box. No one should wake up to find a bunch of rude, faceless messages in their inbox.
