I do not use tumblr much. I have one, but I haven't done a damn thing with it in a few years. Mostly I lurk, if even that. 

That said, this is the first I've heard of the attacks against certain tumblr users. 

From what I've been gathering, an anonymous user (or group of anons) have been harassing vulnerable members of the Supernatural fandom, sending them extremely nasty messages and basically pushing them so far to the edge that one user has already been confirmed a victim of suicide. Another is (or was) missing. Others are not responding to asks or messages, and are possibly in some sort of danger. Some have been admitted to hospitals due to suicide attempts. 

This is completely fucking batshit insane. And so very, very wrong.

I do not know any of the users affected, but I can about guarantee they most likely did not deserve to be treated like shit just for liking Supernatural.

Look, whether or not you like a fandom — doesn't matter if it's Supernatural, Sherlock, Doctor Who, MLP, or whatever — or not, it does not give you the right to attack the people who do. It does NOT give you the right to fuck with someone so badly that you push them to the edge of suicide and happily give them that shove over. That, in my book, makes you a fucking murderer and you deserve every fucking bad thing that EVER comes your way. If you do this, you're not a human being. You're nothing more than a fucking monster that deserves to get put down. 



Edit: it seems as if the first reported suicide is false. She has posted on her tumblr that she is alive and well, and that the post from a "friend" of hers announcing her death was from someone who hijacked her account. Now whether or not that is true remains to be seen. There are still others out there, however, that might still be in danger of harming or killing themselves, so there is still much to be worried about.
What the fuck this isn't facebook what is this status shit

Last month, I caught myself a jumping spider who was heavily gravid and not moving too well. I decided to keep her and care for her, and set up this little tank my sister had for her daughter's neon tetras. I named her Tachikoma, after the tanks in Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex, who were, themselves, modeled after jumping spiders. 

Within a day or two of having moved in, she laid her clutch of eggs and began to stand watch over them. I had done a fair bit of research on the care and keeping of jumping spiders, so I'd read that the mothers will often die because they may not ever leave their egg sac. I didn't want her to die — the entire purpose of this set up was for her to live! So, I did the only thing I could think of: I encouraged her to stop guarding the nest. I wasn't worried; the babies were safe in there. It took a couple of tries to get her to stop, but finally she did and she never went back. 

Until today.

Today, her spiderlings began to appear through the silken sac around them. A pair of tiny black needle point peered back as I stared at the sac, not sure whether or not I was actually seeing eyes. And then they moved. They had survived! They've really begun hatching! I was — and still am — pretty damn excited. This is amazing and something I have never witnessed in real life: the beginnings of brand new spiders. I had helped, in a small way, to bring life into this world. 

Tachikoma, for the first time in a month, has returned to her nest. She began to tear it open to help them, and eventually began to spin a hammock around the nest so that she may settle in beside her babies until they are ready to leave.

I'm not sure what I'll do with this new life. I know that I want to release some of them into the outside world, so that they may go forth and reproduce and make more utterly adorable babies, but I think I may keep one. Just one. And if Tachikoma lives through her babies' first molt, I may release her as well. We shall see.

I'm in the process of getting another, much larger tank setup for the spiders. The sites I've read recommend keeping only one spider in a tank, as they will often fight and kill the other, so I will have to decide what to do. If I keep Tachikoma, I'm not sure if she will reside in the bigger tank, or the one she's in now after it gets a thorough scrub down and redesign. 

All the same, I'm very excited to see how this goes. For a first time spider keeper, this is pretty momentous for me.

This will also be an exceptional learning tool for my niece, I believe.
