Some of those Jason fans were insane... I still remember when Ryan had a video of his new baby up and one of those people from the pro-Jason forum posted a comment saying they hoped the baby died.
I originally joined Save Sonic just because Fantasy was my best friend and I wanted to support her and a lot of the members were quite lovely as Steve said... Fantasy, Steve, Riana, TailsFan92, Hero of Legend, clessalvein, True Blue, ChaosVII... Oh yeah, and AquaSlash. I still talk to a few of these guys, but are any of you hiding here under different names? ;D
Anyway, I was helping Fantasy with the tech work and I decided to stay for the people moreso than the cause itself, which didn't interest me too much at first, until I called Nintendo for the heck of it and the dude said they were actually trying to work something out. We generally kept in contact with Ninty and they told us they got over a thousand calls and over two thousand emails - and then it was very briefly featured in the mailbag section of a Nintendo Power issue. And then some admin named Spax went berserk and said he was gonna track down and kill Fantasy and her friends or something because she cared too much about Ryan and not the gameplay. This same guy had once suggested suicide to me once when I said Jason wasn't even that bad... It was crazy. But at that point it was just too dang entertaining to leave (some of Hogfather's reactions to the ones that posted here were hilarious and it was always fun to watch Spax's daily blowup), and I still had friends there too.
After that fiasco Spax took most of the lunatics away and we were just a cool little community that talked about Sonic in general; when Roger was revealed most people accepted him. Everyone was cool. Except that one girl who insisted characters from Wizards of Waverly Place
was what would save the series for the teenage audience.
Anyway, back on topic, I agree with Steve (I'll give you your rep tomorrow when my available reps recharge :P), but I do really like Roger too.
So yeah. There's my horror story.
