Serious fucking business.

seriously, it's the POTENTIAL relationship of two pre-teens in a fictional universe. Hell, I obsess over Will and even *I* know that flipping a shit over someone disliking your pairing is like 7 kinds of fucked up.

If you are a relatively calm P'shipper or A'shipper, then kudos to you for not acting like a moron everytime someone even remotely implies they don't like your pairing. Everyone else, you have no excuse. :/ Those are the two of the most popular pairings, you have no right to whine when there are SO many other people who support the same thing you do. Ignore the haters and just talk to the people you want to share the love of your ship with. Or you can read an anger management self-help book, either one.

I don't care if I get chewed out for this, I have had to deal with moronic shippers for I don't know how long in this fandom and everytime I said something about it I got whined at. So there you go.

TL;DR: srs bsns.

    AdvanceShipping only seems popular. A poll once on this site prooved that more people like contestshipping. Advanceshippers usually just shout harder, and just seem to be in greater numbers.

    I'm usually calm as a PokeShipper but lately ever since Archaic's rant, the shippers became more...rowdy.

    People obviously misunderstood Archaic's words and blew things out of proportion.

    Also, why isn't there more love for ships like Ignitionshipping? :(

    It does seem like some people have taken things a few steps further than I originally intended, yes. I made that post as a bit of a kick in the pants to people using very weak hint standards, since it really does reflect badly on all of us shippers. While I did make pains to point out that it didn't apply to those who don't care about the evidence, and just follow ships for fun or because they're cute, etc, many in this group seem to be taking offence to some things the shippers who do care about the evidence are doing. One instance that I'm still not sure exactly what happened seems to have involved someone who follows both Poke and Advance getting chewed out by fellow AdvanceShippers for daring to criticize some of its weaker hints, on the assumption that she must be attacking it because of her following PokeShipping. It's a bit of a mess, but we'll sort it out quickly enough I feel.

    I had very little time to respond yesterday, so I wasn't able to follow all of it, but the basic gist of it was that he/she claimed Advanceshipping was nonsense because May left the group on her own accord.

    It wasn't just attacking weak hints, it was basically just pointing at one thing and then handwaving every counterargument. In other communities that is considered trolling, and it is no surprise that it got out of hand as fast as it did.

    If you honestly think this debating thing is going to go over well, you are being terribly naive. You expect a bunch of 14~16 year olds to be polite and civil while they're defending their beliefs? This is not about defending your point of view, this is about having to endure someone telling you you're wrong simply because they don't share your opinion.

    XD That's why I don't usually try to prove my ships using 'hints'. I know none of my ships are going to happen because Pokemon isn't the kind of series to show that many relationships. Besides, it's not like I can logically expect something like Assholeshipping or Susushipping to be canon XD;
