In which the Sherlock fandom never ceases to amaze and constantly disappoints

The moderators on the meme have now basically condoned hate speech on the meme. Publicly (nothing particularly nasty on this thread, but what it links to is disgusting). If transphobic hate like that is going to be allowed on the meme, then I am 100% done with it. I don't care if it is 'just on the rant post.' The people on the rant post are people on the main meme as well, and if they really believe that these ideas are OK, then I want nothing to do with them.

At least I have my smaller fandoms.

1. What?! Seriously, what are mods for if not to stop hate speech?

2. The fandom is so unstable that it has to have rant posts?

3. It must be possible to report the original commenters. Surely hate speech is against LJ's T+C?

I've reported the links... probably nothing will happen but even without being a group member that pissed me off big time.

(I assume the perps are unlikely to read your flist)

Ew. Ew. Ew. Okay, it will never cease to amaze me how people can divorce themselves from responsibility for things that don't viscerally affect them.
