If the Internet were a Twinkie, drama would be the oily sheen that oozes from its pores.

Where is LJ's "like" button? It's beyond appropriate for posts like these. ;)

Oh Sakura, typical example of Facebook passive-agressiveness. She is horrible!


(Clearly horrible, if anything other than Cooking With Superman draws me to comment, haha!)

A rare Wispykitty comment! I feel accomplished! :D

The "like" button just might be the only feature I genuinely, um... like about Facebook. I'd be happy if LJ adopted it!

Haha I know, I'm a horrible reader. ;)

But yes, LJ should totally adopt the "like" button. Granted, it would probably lead to fewer actual replies, so I'm sure after a month we'd all be sick of it and wishing for its death. ;)

Also - I love the range of supportive comments she got. Typical Facebook idiocy. Granted, I'd have probably died had you had someone reply and say "I am totally submitting this to STFUWhiner!" Not that there actually is a STFUWhiner blog, but there would be in a perfect world. And Sakura would be on it!

There's always failbook.failblog.org.

I don't even have FB and I love it. XD

Oh, well see--they could also install the "dislike" button. That would surely make the experiment more interesting!

Passive-aggressiveness followed by insipid lip-service affirmations about how awesome said person supposedly is.

I see this sort of thing happen occasionally, and it's startling to me how quick people are to condemn someone without having the full story.

I have NO CLUE how Sakura has made that leap.

I must be a bad person.

SOB EVERYONE WILL DELETE ME!

Maybe because she does understand fashion? She lives in my head, and even I'm puzzled by her!

Aw, poor insecure Sakura! She needs to hang out with Kimono and Minty more often.

I actually feel sorry for her, because she clearly seems to be suffering from a mental illness rather than being actively malicious. I've struggled with bipolar depression and I can see myself in her.

That's a new idea for me...I just thought she was terminally self-centered as a character flaw, not as an illness. But I guess if that's how she sees the world, it's a disability, isn't it? Thank you for the insight!

I'm looking it more in this light -

I know an artist who knows her fans and has them wrapped around her finger. She can totally say something that is just ambiguous enough to make people feel sorry for her. She appears to be totally be oblivious to about how people will react, but she knows. And she says things like that ALL THE TIME to get support from her fans when she feels insulted.

Not sure if Sakura is going to turn her fans on the guilty party, though. The artist I spoke of will then give names, and the angry mob moves in for the Internet kill. A person smarter than me and I managed to reveal the true character of this artist, but it took forever. And lots of proof. She had emotionally hurt a lot of her rival artists before we were able to stop her, though.

I feel Sakura knows exactly what she's doing. She isn't sincere about people deleting her - she's intentionally being ambiguous to rile up her friends so they'll give her tons of support while growling at Minty for her. While Sakura appears to be innocent and sweet.

D: Noooooo, not Kimono's sister!

Hmm. That's a plausible interpretation. That would actually be an interesting storyline for the comic to pursue, although possibly too dark for my favorite dose of sunshine. It's just when I've felt like shit I really do feel that my friends might as well delete me from their lives, although I've gotten better over the years. Hint: love your friends but don't put them on a pedestal.

That's a good hint.

One of the problems with people who idolize themselves is that their friends and fans are often self-blinded to the narcissism going on. Some people just want to be elevated by the people they feel are awesome, whether it's good for both parties or not.

I'm hoping Kimono's sister isn't that kind of manipulative, but I kinda got the feeling from the way Kimono tells Minty about her sister that Sakura is really manipulative.

"If the Internet were a Twinkie, drama would be the oily sheen that oozes from its pores."

That is most brilliant. Do you mind if I use that? All credit to you, of course.

Thank you kindly! I have it set as a signature on our incredibly geeky roleplaying forum (link back to you). I hope Minty would approve.

I'm still dying laughing over her friends' Myspace-esque profile pics! XD

Hah!! :D Mmm, one-sided dramaz...

At least Sakura has mostly literate Facebutt friends. I even spot the correct form of your/you're! XD

Gorgeous! As always. ^-^
I wonder if we will see some of Sakuras Facebook-Friends more often in KT? (I love their profile pics! -3- )

The pony facebook part is genius.

GENIUS.

The main thing my sleepy brain is wondering here is how she does her hair. I mean mane. *tilts head*
But. Those pony facebook pics and all... just brilliant. xD And the rest, too - though it's a bit painful that people like that really exist.
