Confession: the prequels killed Star Wars for me. I haven't seen the latest ones, and I probably never will.

@lilithsaintcrow Same, although I don't proclaim it too loudly in nerdier circles.

@kevinja It's a great way to figure out who's toxic, though. The ones who yell at or browbeat me get tipped into the "muted" file.

@lilithsaintcrow Oh, man. Yeah, I've noticed the correlations there too. Sometimes the greatest enemy to a fandom seems to be its own fans.

@kevinja I think it's great when people feel invested, but it all too easily turns toxic.
