Idol B

Green Room - Week 11 - Day 07

Everyone needs to get off my internet.

Right now.

I’ll just go ahead and put up a wall to keep the rest of the population of the world out. Everyone else can go back to doing cross-stitch, word searches, or whatever it was that was previously keeping you busy.

This move will solve 100% of “internet drama” and 111% of statistical related drama. It will even solve 134% of made up facts drama. Because who is going to be around to argue with any of these facts? That’s right. NO ONE.

So go out of find a couple more cats to take care of, and leave this series of tubes to me. Where it belongs.

I expect to see all of the websites out there to disappear within the next 24 hours. Especially the ones with comment sections – because seriously? That’s what you are spending your time on? If you are going to comment, go to Idol entries or even better – the Green Room!

Stay off of any article that allows you to comment if you want to save IQ points.

But that won’t be a problem for you much longer. Because you know, the whole everyone getting off my internet thing. ;) There. Problem solved. You’re welcome.

In a slightly related note – one of the “big stories” that I’ve been seeing going around (first for the event and then for the people who started saying that the event didn’t happen/digging into it) all over social media for the last couple of days is focusing on an Idoler.

It’s no one currently with us – but there is no such thing as an “ex Idoler”. There are only people who haven’t signed up this season, or can no longer sign up. ;) The latter are the only ones who aren’t still members of this family.

No, I’m not going to get into who or what. But if you *do* know, you should also know that Idol supports its own.

If it’s true – then this person needs the support.
If it’s not, and like the bobble-heads that have turned against them are saying that it’s a “mental health issue” and “drama seeking” involved – then we still support this person. Because then they were need all the support they can get in order to get that help.

It’s far too easy for people to sit back and nitpick a story. In various cases of things happening in Florida, for instance, I’ve seen people say things that no one who knew the area as well as they allege that they do would ever say. But because it fits in with what the other commenters are saying… that means they all start nodding their collective head and rally behind. I wonder what would happen if anyone were to research *their* lives and hold them up to the spotlight. I imagine that it would be nothing good.

For whatever reason, people like to use “oh, they have a mental health issue – whatever they are saying MUST BE FALSE”. Which is just crappy logic.
*Might it be* - sure. But it’s just as likely to be false if someone *doesn’t* have any issues.

Granted, this is the Internet. Who *doesn’t* have some sort of mental health issue around here??? ;)

Speaking of mental health issues – there is a new poll up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/682110.html
