This is complete bullshit and it needs to stop.
The recent ‘drama’ between MoxieMo and I, has been blown completely out of proportion.
The last time I checked, everyone has the right to have an opinion. And I DO, in fact, agree with her core position…
Selling fanfiction IS wrong. Selling fanfiction IS criminal.
I don’t think anyone would argue otherwise, but since the misguided belief that I was doing just that is the cause for the ongoing debate, tempers have flared.
The unarguable position that selling fanfiction is immoral is (I believe) why MoxieMo contacted me when she saw that I’d added the donation button to EricIzMine.com.
As soon as I read her message, I removed it… One person misunderstanding the reason for the button was all I needed.
Done… or at least, I thought it was.
Even though I’d removed the link in an effort to prevent others from being confused by its intent, the drama had already been set into motion…
I was going to stay out of it. I didn’t want to give ‘this’ attention it didn’t deserve… I already wasted a day over an issue that should have been resolved in the two minutes I spent removing the link.
Instead, I made a brief post to the BratPack to let them know about the reasons for the changes to my various accounts. After all, the BratPack is the core of my most vocal readers.
It was them who brought MoxieMo’s superfluous rant to my attention…
And we witnessed the birth of a monster.
So here we are, on Day Five of a protracted affair where both sides have valid points to make and strong opinions…
AND it doesn’t seem like anyone knows we’re well past the point to shut the fuck up and realize that.
MoxieMo (and her friends) are trying to make the point that selling fanfiction is wrong.
They’re right. They’ve beaten the shit out of that old horse, but they’re right.
My friends are trying to make the point that I wasn’t selling my fanfiction via the donation link.
They’re right as well… And there is another sad horsy carcass rotting on the grounds of the BratPack ranch.
In my honest (and rarely humble) opinion, this has gone on long enough.
What I’m doing is asking my readers, my friends, my BratPack family, to cease and desist…
Stop defending me. Please.
I don’t care if MoxieMo repetitiously shouts from the rooftops her omnipotent perspectives…
There isn’t a point in saying anything about it because she’s made it alarmingly obvious that she doesn’t respond well to being corrected.
MoxieMo has gotten a lot more attention than she deserves from redundantly ranting about my jackass move of posting the link on my WP.
Since most of you have stated you’ve never cared for her writing, this situation isn’t any different.
Thank you for your time, ladies.
