I was just thinking about j-pop fandom, you know, in general. There's so much silly in-fighting and nonsense, I'm always kind of reluctant to get involved. Sometimes I can't help but think 'Seriously? Do we have nothing better to do? x.x" Channel-Ai's the only fansite I actively (admitedly intermittently) pariciapte in. Ai fans all seem so...well, Ai-like. Even during the rare somewhat contentious discussion Channel-Ai members are all courteous and friendly. It makes it a lot of fun to hang out here. That's all I wanted to say. Nod

i have sometimes wondered if the same people who like Ai's music also have a similar temperament and attitude towards others. more than once i have thought to myself: "i dont know anything about this person, but they must be ok. after all, they like Ai's music." whether it is justified to think this i dont know. maybe it is, because of the emotion and sincerity in her songs. if you are moved by her music then that indicates a degree of sensitivity in the listener.

another reason why Channel-Ai is the way it is, is because of eyn. even though he is not present now, in the early days of this forum he was very active in setting the tone. he did not tolerate rude or silly behaviour. rather, he encouraged thoughtful discussion and for people to put forward their opinions. i have heard that in some fan forums it is a rule that you cannot say anything negative about the artist. that is clearly not the case here. anyone is free to express their opinion about anything, if it is sincerely held. personally, i have made negative comments about how her image is constantly photoshopped and how i hate that there a recorded backing track in her live performances. this was before i was a mod, and i never felt intimidated to avoid saying these things.
