Let me make something really REALLY clear here: the only person in this fandom who speaks for me is me. This is especially true when the person who thinks she's speaking for me is rude or entitled, as happened yesterday on Twitter.
I first caught wind of it at Armitage Agonistes this morning but didn't have a chance to read the whole thing till this afternoon. I read the Tweets to Hewson and Hartley -- you know, the guys behind the Hamlet project who've been nothing but accomodating and kind to everyone who's contacted them. Apparently their generosity so far hasn't been enough and at least one person who thinks she represents the fanbase as a whole thinks that she -- on behalf of we -- is entitled to proprietary sales information. Uh, no. When they weren't forthcoming -- because why the hell would they be? -- a tantrum was thrown.
Let me loop you in here: these people, Hewson and Hartley and Richard Armitage and the Audible sales and marketing and press teams? They're professionals. They've been hired to do what they do because they're good at it. You aren't a professional in this scenario. What you are is a fan, same as me, and also a blogger, same as me. That's where the sameness ends. Please keep that in mind the next time you think you're entitled to shoot your mouth off on behalf of the fanbase.
