To those reading this who support us and are respectful even when you have differing opinions, you are not the intended audience, but you’re free to continue reading; so … welcome. To those of you who seem to be quite against our account and resort to posting your dislike of us online … welcome to you as well. If you do read this, a good majority of you will likely say you’re unconcerned with our account and do not pay attention to us, but strangely enough you seem to keep happening upon our posts and taking time and energy to write all sorts of things about our account. So, we’ll throw this out there and you can interpret it how you will.
There seems to be a good deal of people who do not agree with our opinions nor do they agree with what we post. To that I say it’s perfectly fine. You’re welcome to disagree with some or all of what we put out there. And contrary to what most of you seem to think, we welcome opposing views and we encourage you to discuss your side of it with us.
We’ve been accused of automatically blocking people who do not agree with us. This is untrue. Automatic blocking takes place depending on the manner in which a comment is posted. We’ve had people call us stupid, we’ve had people curse at us, and we’ve had people be downright rude in a variety of other ways. We see no point in wasting our time with these types of comments and hatred, so they are blocked. Respectful and kind statements explaining your opinion sparks good discussion and we love when people engage with us in such a manner.
If you’re still reading, I’m not going to try and convince you to start liking us. I’m not going to try and dictate you what you should think of us. Your opinions and thoughts are yours to form and very rarely can feelings be swayed by the person(s) that are not liked. I won’t even ask that you not post things about us because I have no right to control what you post and my asking again will do nothing to stop it. If what I post and think really holds that much power over you, I guess I have inadvertently made a rather distinct impression on your life. Which is saying something in and of itself.
I’m a person who analyzes and evaluates … a lot. I analyze the show and things I post are not attacks or hate on a character. These characters are fake. These stories are fake. How silly would it be for me to hate a fake person? The things I post are my mind working through the information presented in regards to storylines we’ve been following for ten years. And sometimes, facts get presented in a confusing manner. This also is not an attack on the writers. They are putting hard work into telling us good stories, just sometimes the story doesn’t come across clearly and leaves me a bit confused as to what they are attempting to convey.
I don’t understand some things they’ve written into Arizona’s story. I don’t understand some things they’ve written into Callie’s story. I don’t understand some things they’ve written into Meredith or Derek’s story, etc. But I have never once said, “I hate <insert character name here>.” I make comments on elements of the story that are confusing. Because we are clearly a JCap/Arizona account, the comments and opinions tend to revolve heavily around things and people most closely tied to her.
On that note, I do not hate any of the actors either. I have commented that I think some of them have influenced specific storylines. We’ve even been told that some of them have. However, we don’t know that definitively for all of the storylines and our speculation that a specific actor may have had some suggestions as to how a story was headed is not saying anything bad towards them. It’s merely us speculating and wondering if that were the case. We do not judge or comment on the personal lives of the actors themselves as that is not our right, nor anyone else’s out here in cyberspace.
Now, back to the unkind posts people seem to be quick to throw out there about our account. Like I said previously, it’s fine if you don’t like the account. It’s fine if you don’t like the opinions we have. It’s fine if you don’t like the things we question and find confusing within the context of the show. But why do you feel it necessary to post such mean spirited things when it gains nothing for anyone? Honestly, what exactly do you get out of that?
There are plenty of accounts that post things about Arizona and other characters that we find rather unkind and don’t agree with, but we don’t go off posting about those accounts to get people against them. People can have those thoughts and post about them, it’s not our right or place to call them out or try and start fights. Why do people feel it’s ok to treat us this way?
So, whether you’re reading this as someone who supports our account and agrees that we have the right to post our thoughts, opinions, questions, etc., or you’re reading it at as someone who dislikes us but feel it necessary to be up to date on everything we post, there it is. I’m sure even this post will spark further similar unkind comments, but there is really nothing we can do to stop that.
The opinions and posts may sometimes be strong and to the point, but we’re not attacking people, fictional or otherwise. I truly do not understand the purpose behind following an account (even if you’re not literally ‘following’ it) and concerning yourself with what is posted only to get angry and lash out.
