A small tantrum.

Oh for pete's sake. It's kerfuffle. Kerfuffle. KERFUFFLE. Trust me on this.

NO bloody extra L, kerfuffle, from the Scots Gaelic "to kick off in a pointless fashion" (though obviously I am paraphrasing).

What is more: STOP using the word "wanker" unless you can do it properly. You sound about as silly as I do using the words "dude" and "word". Which is to say very.

I am very glad fandom_wank is gone. While I think that there's no reason why it should have been TOSed, people were using it to settle scores.

*rebellious* But kerfluffle *sounds* better.

Even if the dictionary agrees with you.

I too am glad they are gone.

And I have SEEN THE COWS. Happy cows. Interesting cows which will result in complexities in the future.

Also, happily burning copies of "Just Sideways" for Max.

Yes but you know that come 422 the COWS will be SLAUGHTERED, TORTURED and possibly EATEN with KETCHUP.

Sometimes I forget how much I like this show. *G*o

And I will be left sobbing on the floor. Dammit.

Why don't you fly to the US for the finale so we can clutch at each other and drink too much?

I rather wish it were kerfluffle, if only to be able to use the phrase "putting the fluff back in kerfluffle."

I know you're right, but I like kerfluffle, because that makes it seem lighter and, just, well, fluffier, you know?

Anyway, I liked fandom_wank at first, because it seemed like a good way to step back from the kerfuffles/kerfluffles, *g* and be able to laugh at some of the silliness of fandom fighting (which, IMO, is for the most part, ridiculous). But, yeah, it became pretty nasty and hateful there. And just as "wanktastic" as those they were mocking.
