Tumblr & Etiquette

So I make the mistake of not knowing Helena Bertinelli was dead. I assumed she was simply an alias Helena Wayne used, and that they were the same character (or DC was making it seem that way) and this user criticizes me as if I'm some lowlife trash who doesn't know anything at all. Excuse me for not having a Phd in comics. This is exactly why most newcomers shy away from comics, because you have the ignorant assholes (excuse my french) who feel the need to belittle someone for not having a vast comic knowledge. This has me furious.

What does a**holes (in French) mean?

Only some people are like that. Mostly the trolls.

@NlGHTCRAWLER: It's just a saying. I take it you have never heard it before?

@YourNeighborhoodComicGeek: She was asking for a serious beatdown.

I don't think you should judge how comic readers are treated based on what someone says to you on a blogsite. Blogsites,social media,& forums are open to everyone, which means some times the ignorant are going to get in. All comic readers don't react like that. When I get negative comments on tumblr, I mostly ignore them because I find that if someone isn't reblogging or liking my post their nitpicking as reasons to find fault in my posts. Not once has someone had an intelligent argument on tumblr. Don't take it to heart.

@Vance Astro:

Your absolutely right. And I don't look at all comic readers that way, I haven't encountered a single person on the comic vine community who has displayed such behavior as the ignoramous on tumblr. I appreciate your comment.

@NlGHTCRAWLER: Your quite the comedian. You should think about "Kings of Comedy".

tumblr has the most intense fandoms that you will ever come across. It's the best and worst thing at the same time.

@Vance Astro: The video was cute. I chuckled at the scene when her and Bieber were having a grindfest. He wasn't ready for all that jelly.

@Mercy_: The Emma Frost hate on tumblr is an atrocity, and some of the things said about Talia makes me want to flip my wig.

@wickedfun: I run fckyeahemmafrost, I know a lot about her hate lol (it's also somewhat rampant on CV, although there's a good solid Emma fan base here).

I'm pretty sure 4chan is the best and worst thing at the same time.

Tumblr has runner up though. :P

4Chan is not *unsafe* though. At least I don't think so... pretty nasty, but from what I have seen harmless.
