Folks, hate the fic. Not its writer.

Hating its writer is going to get the community TOSsed.

I will screen and delete comments if I have to.

Good: Fic X is a piece of shit, disguised as fanfic.

Bad: Writer X is an untalented whore.

Can we a hate a particular writer's style?

Yeah, this is what I'm wondering. Sometimes I hate entire bodies of work by an author, and I'm hoping it's ok to say that. (And the difference really seems to be in the wording--because in my experience in THIS FANDOM, so-and-so author is an untalented hack.)

But saying "so-and-so's political beliefs are stupid!" or "so-and-so must be fat to do that much Scully self-insertion" is what I'm guessing isn't.

Yes, but try to be specific. It has to be obvious that it's about the writer's style, not personality.

It didn't get the old community TOSsed.

seriously. there was some VILE personal stuff on there, too.

Sorry about that fanfic_hatred. Can you repost the hate for the author beginning with F on a certain anon meme?

May your community live long and prosper. Thanks for reposting.

Toooooo many entries. What's wrong with the traditional anon meme with just one entry?
