Unpopular bandom opinions ahoy!

You know that unpopular opinion you've been harboring? Yeah, that one. The one that you're afraid to say aloud for fear that everyone else in bandom will look at you, mouths agape, then unite to say, "HEATHEN!"

Say, for instance, you don't think Spencer Smith's hips are all that. (...Heathen! What? I couldn't pass it up!)

Well, sometimes saying that stuff can be freeing. And since it's nearly a new year, I present the hopefully cathartic:

Anonymous Unpopular Bandom Opinion Meme

IP logging is off, and you can anonymously comment to this post to get off your chest the things you've been too afraid to express up until now. And who knows? Sympathizers may come out to show that you're not so alone as you thought you were.

So go ahead and comment! But first, this utterly essential rule: DO NOT ATTACK PARTICULAR FICS TO SAY YOU HATED THEM EVEN THOUGH OTHER PEOPLE LIKED THEM, AND DO NOT ATTACK OTHER BANDOM FANS. This is not negotiable. Any such comments will be deleted. And please try to keep it civil. The point is to get it out of your system (like shouting into a pillow when you're frustrated!) and hopefully find out you're not so alone, not to try to make others see the error of their ways. If you have a dearly held opinion, I'm sure you understand how unfun it is to have people trying to convince you you're wrong.

ETA: Please e-mail me at untappedbeauty(at)livejournal(dot)com if you see fan- or fic-bashing. It's getting a little harder than I expected to keep up with all the comments.

ETA 2: It's 5:45 a.m. Central right now, and I'm going to turn on comment screening in about half an hour. Any comments that come my way after that WILL NOT be let through. It seems like 24 hours of venting should be sufficient.

ETA 3: As of 6:20 a.m., this post is closed to further commenting.
