Can't we all just get along?

When: Lately.
Where: Jackfic list.
What: Whining.
Why: 'Too much' shipfic.


*rolls eyes* Yeah, okay, so I hate to sound like a soapbox lecturer all the time, but what is with people not being able to act like rational adults (even if they really aren't)? Sure, that might sound a little deep for the current topic, but when you get right down to it, the people are whining because they can't just suck it up and deal and maybe even work out their own solutions without running to the nearest listmommy. If these people don't like shipfic, there's no reason they should have to read it. If they think there's not enough "gen" Jackfic written, well, that's the problem of the "gen" writers. Unless the list owners are going to change the rules and say that shipfic isn't permitted, those whose tastes differ are just going to have to suffer. Or they can leave and start the 546th Stargate fic list with nice, listnazish rules about what is allowed and what isn't. Something like "Only Season 1 or post-Abyss stories where Jack pines for Sara."

Well, actually the listmom asked ppl to send their ship (or any other) fic to the list if it's centered around Jack, since the list in question was the Jackfic. Ppl started that list as a reaction of finding only Dannywhumping, or slash or Sam focused fics out there. Many of them started complain when the majority of the fics on the list barely had Jack. Probably some of them simply wants to pair him with somebody else.Many of them just finds, that most of the shipfic focuses around Sam.
They're not against Sam or the shippers, they want more Jack.

I'm not a fan of keeping 546 list to discuss our allegedly mutual interest (SG), but if ppl want a place where they're among those who share their interest , I can't stop them.
I just dunno where I could go to complain, that I have to join
too many lists. Should I start one? ;)
