“For the record: I have never quoted fans without permission” please someone else with the spoons to do it call Aja out on this, I’m too afraid of her and not up for it but this is blatantly untrue, and one of my friends was use w/o notice OR permission in one of Aja’s articles. Said friend was…
I understand that this must have been very hard for your friend and I get that, but realistically, when you post something in a public sphere then you have to accept that you may be linked to/discussed. Prime time news quotes stuff that’s on public blogs/Twitters all the time! This is not unique to Aja. If it was a locked Livejournal entry, obviously that would be incredibly different. But if anyone can wander upon it by accident, through reblogs or through tags, then a journalist linking to it should not be completely unexpected.
Anyone who wants their content to remain completely private should not be posting on Tumblr. There is no way to lock that content down or protect it.
please back off and don’t contact me again. I’m already changing my URL. I cannot deal with this.
This is an EXCELLENT example of the nature of public social media and the inability to delete content. The minute someone reblogged the original post, it doesn’t matter how many times the username is changed or the original entry deleted. It won’t go away; the post will remain, as will the responses to it. Regardless of the original posters feelings on the matter, responses can continue, because people may never see the original post, just the reblogs.
It’s the nature of social media. Anyone can reply to a public Tumblr post, even people who disagree with you.
this is a beautiful reply.
Wow, so it’s not enough to try and force a fandom into the limelight— very disrespectfully against their wishes, by the way, which is a very shitty thing to do. As a person, everyone has the choice whether or not to single people out. No one gets to hide behind the idea that it’s “the nature of public media.”
And then when this issue causes someone some genuine fucking distress, you’re going to gloat about it. Awesome.
And by awesome I mean spectacularly appalling.
I’M NOT AJA. seriously concerned about what’s going on now sdfhsdfhdfh is all the aja hate actually… erin hate… misdirected…?
For the record, also not Aja. And also mystified by what’s going on - I’m not gloating about anyone’s anything, I’m just pointing out how Tumblr (and much of social media) works. If that causes someone distress…well, sorry? But I didn’t invent Tumblr.
