To be fair I didn't write as much R/Hr as I usually do last year.

It's nice to have something that expresses Ron/Hermione readers opinion rather than an exclusive little clique.

Yes, I'm gloating, and I don't care!

The winning bidder over on the Ron-A-Thon auction at TQP asked for Ron/Hermione winning through adversity so that's my next mission!

Y'know the best bit though?

Checkmated was voted best Ron/Hermione site by the same people.

So CM readers think I'm pretty good, it's not their fault, and I appear to be doing good work so it's not mine...who else is left to blame before they sort out the rejection procedure and stop being so unreasonable and rude?

Perhaps they should read the comm instead of accusing us of BS-ing it (which is what I assume is going on).

Well there's none of it on my flist but I've heard it's around.

One person claiming to be associated with the site left an anon comment to something I was saying on a friend's LJ and they were all 'I have to stay anon so I can protect myself'.

Find me anything where names are named? I for one don't know who any of the CM council are, I couldn't name them (nor avoid them) if I wanted to.

Funnily enough the person protecting their identity had no problem making stuff up and putting my name to it. Class act.

Indeed. The classiest. What did they say in the anon comment?

I've seen hints of comm related drama around fandom; one person on my flist posted a long entry about how it's not a wanking comm and about how no one should get offended, and I saw something on maple_mahogany's LJ, but I haven't seen any honest to goodness wank-accusations.

It appears to be lots of locked posts as far as I've heard.

We are all saying what we say publically and putting our names to it but the people who are actually stirring up the trouble and bad mouthing people are doing it behind people's backs.

Oh I was told that by bashing CM I was ruining Ron fandom and that I also caused the triatha_ron to close down because they didn't invite me (which they actually did if you want to have all the facts) and that I insulted everybody who was taking part in it (despite the fact that my real life friends were taking part)

We are trying to make rejected people feel better about trying again and trying other sites after their insulting knock-back and 'certain others' are actively making up crap about us to make it look as if we're attacking rather than bolstering people.

As others on my flist have said, it's the incredibe 'Imaginary wank'! *lol*

"Ruining the Ron fandom?" wtf.

Nobody should make us feel ashamed for giving others support. And if the Council is pissy about this comm, then it almost proves that they know that we have a right to be upset, and that they are getting defensive in return.

I have nothing personally against any of them, and I'm sure that that's true for the members of this comm as well. *sigh* Oh fandom...

Of all the nominations I made only one won anything but it's all yay anyway.

The cool thing is that the R/Hr shippers read everything before they vote. I got so many reviews for old fics recently.
