I have a request. Can we please stop the circlejerks of who the most toxic fandom and the most hated groups are? At least here on Allkpop? There's a thread about it every so often and it gets so much engagement, it worries me a bit how collectively obsessed we are as fans to try and ascertain what I would think are the most negative points of our community. I would think with fanwars, being what they are, would be enough pessimism and negativity for us, but for some of us, it just isn't enough. We have to vindicate our preconceived notions about a fandom that a majority of them are toxic, or claiming that the group you stan is the most hated. Even making threads about which groups have flopped or are close to it. In my mind, these topics are useless and serve no purpose other than fandoms getting to dig up receipts of past hate, trolls coming in and spreading lies and/or rumors, and overall pointless arguments about who's the most "_____" when we could be supporting our faves. This goes for all fans, not just one in particular. So can we come together and stop being so pressed as to who had black oceans, who never cracked top 10 on Gaon, who had a national hit, who had the most hate hashtags trended against them, who was the most nugu, who the most toxic fandom is, etc.? I believe that by doing all of this, we indirectly prove that we are ALL toxic fans. That is all for my thinkpiece today. Feel free to discuss.
