Well the biggest troublemakers and trolls are the OT only fans who hate the prequels, George Lucas and now all of a sudden are the same people who also didn't really like EU material either and are drinking the Disney kool aid they are the ones who make it a point to join prequel fan groups just to troll but those of us who like the prequels also like everything else and we do not troll anyone.
Hi! I suspect a lot of who the worst troublemakers are depends on your experience! (Or at least that’s so in my experience! XD) Like, some of the OT only fans have a really bad reputation for a reason, but also some of the most unpleasant people I’ve had to deal with are primarily PT fans or ST fans. Every group has their awful behaved people, every group has at least a handful of really loud people who will constantly crap all over other people’s way of engaging with fandom or try to be a gatekeepr or say you’re interpreting something wrong.
As a prequels fan, boy, have I experienced people coming onto my posts just to add pointlessly negative things about the parts of Star Wars I enjoy. But I’ve also see prequels fans unable to stop being pointlessly mean to other prequels fans or to sequel trilogy fans who don’t want to engage with Star Wars in the same way, that they just want to like their movies, not become experts on the parts of Legends or even Disney canon that they don’t care about. And so many OT fans who spend so much energy hating on the prequels because they weren’t what they thought they were going to be.
All of our corners have people behaving like assholes, which isn’t uncommon for any fandom, really. But, wow, I’ve experienced more of people jumping onto others’ posts to be aggressive to other fans here more than I have elsewhere! I’m sure other fandoms are probably worse, god knows the Thor parts of the fandom in the MCU had a lot of poorly behaved Loki fans, and I’ve had to say many, many times on my Sailor Moon blog that you can criticize Sailor Moon Crystal all you want, but keep it off my posts, and STILL had trouble with it.
But idk each fandom has their own special flavor of it and I suppose the more one puts oneself out there, the more one has to deal with it. It’s a learning process to let it roll off me and just get back to having fun and crying about the parts that I like, I suppose. XD
