You don't have to avenge me either, there are already a team of avengers out there helping the world. I've been going through the comments and PMs I've been rapidly getting telling me about trolls and other angry people commenting on the journal. Some are asking why I'm not saying anything and defending my position more. Truth is, I don't need to.
I learned a long long time ago that you don't feed the trolls. Even when they're not trolling and just acting generally pissed off, it's best to just back off and let them cool. Slinging insults back, trying to outwit them, or treating them like a child doesn't lead anywhere. If they get a response or a rise of anger out of you, they've been successful in their job. They have then accomplished what they set out to do.
As I said, I appreciate the sentiment but I really don't need anyone to stand up for me. And as for the recommendation of deleting those nasty or trolling comments, that too is another form of responding. Everyone has a right to tell me what they feel, whether it be good or bad, that has ALWAYS been my policy. But I'll admit, bad comments can be demotivating but I've been a furry since 2004 and I've seen it all. The good has always outweighed the bad and that's what truly hard warming about the support.
*Gives everyone a big feathery hug* ^v^
What I wrote a couple days ago was me kind of having one of my freak outs, it happens but I have plenty of support on my end to get me back up. I'm feeling a lot more stable now and that is from the continuous support of my friends and fans. I know that doesn't change the fact that I fumbled the release date and I still can't give everyone a new one. It would be irresponsible to do at this time. Please hang in there, I am working on it and I'll have something very soon.
Again, thank you for all your support and please don't feed the trolls.
