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."

Re: Jackfic
Well I'm not really talking about what the listmom said (although I didn't think the post was nessecary; she could have gotten the message across without going into as much detail and opening a can of worms ;)). I was just surprised that some people chimed in with 'yes, this list didn't start out with this much Sam/Jack and I don't know if it's the place for me'. Lists change over time as they grow and take on new members; it's just a fact of fandom life.
