Sometimes I feel like a real asshole when I say things that offend or hurt other people’s feelings. It’s never my intent to put someone down, I just get really opinionated and I need to stop that. To anyone who has ever been personally offended by one of my rants, I am sincerely sorry. I’m making it a personal goal to stop getting on a soap box over things that really have no impact on my life. I preach “to each their own” and “live and let live” so it’s high time I just shut the hell up and live by that myself. Next time I’m an ass, please just tell me to shut up.

Right now my apologies are owed to the Mishamigos that I ranted about. Sorry guys. Really. I promise I’m not a horrible person in real life.

My attempt at a response from the overlord

This kind of crap is what I was referring to in one of my previous posts. This. Is. Obnoxious. How about you not spam the shit out of Misha’s phone?  If you’re doing it, chances are about 5,000 other people are too and that’s why he doesn’t answer anyone.  Again, Misha asked for it by giving out his number, but you guys seriously make me want to disassociate myself from the rest of the fandom.

Uhm actually Misha knew this would happen and encouraged it. He knew it would happen as he has over a million twitter followers. It’s obviously not his personal phone, so it literally doesn’t bother him at all. He knows better than that. He did this before, remember. And he has made it clear that he enjoys seeing the things people send him. If he didn’t want this to happen, he wouldn’t have tweeted his number twice. If anything, it’s flattering to know so many people care about him and if he had a problem with it, he would have asked us not to or just changed the number. So YOU can’t get out of my fucking face, you pretentious dick

I’m almost positive Misha would wholeheartedly not approve of his fans insulting each other.

The issue at hand is surpassed by the sheer amount of venom in this reply.

Holy hell. Calm down. We’re all entitled to an opinion which you don’t have to agree with, but being civil about it makes it more likely to be respected.

I’m all for people calling and texting Misha, my point was this is excessive. Seeing the posts from people who were like “I called him 17 times…” and then this post of message after message just really irked me.  If you want to text or call Misha and tell him something awesome, go for it. He obviously wants that since he gave out his number, but don’t just keep texting random crap because you want him to respond. Everyone wants him to respond and as you pointed out, mishagives, he has over a million followers.  Try and calculate just how many texts and calls that is if everyone messaged him as many times as you….

If it had been said “hey, maybe you shouldn’t do that” than I would have responded ” you know what, maybe you’re right.” What pissed me off was being called obnoxious and displayed on someone’s blog as an example of all that is wrong with the fandom. I apologize for coming off so hostile, but please don’t insult me in such a way when there are people tweeting him hateful and vulgar things. I agree that the texting was overboard. I actually only did it because I got bored and I haven’t really sent anything since. Another thing that angered me was this post is also personal with my vulnerable message to him about some of my hardships and for someone to come along and call me obnoxious, even after the other texts, it made me furious. Again, I shouldn’t have reacted the way that I did. I was sleep deprived and sick and already pissed off but that wasn’t your fault, so I’m sorry. But please don’t call me obnoxious when you could have just asked me nicely not to bother him so much.

I responded to this privately, but just as a public apology, my comment was very strong and I do apologize to anyone who was offended.  I have a tendency to get very passionate when something irks me, and the way people have gone overboard with calling and texting Misha is one of those things I feel very passionately irked about. Like I said, call him, text him, whatever, but be considerate and don’t abuse the privilege. Say what you want to say to him, and let it rest at that. That goes for anyone out there.  So, again, I apologize to anyone who was angered, felt belittled or hurt by my comments and I will do better in the future to try not to respond to something without thinking it through first.

I guess Misha asked for it by posting his phone number again, but seriously guys…?  Call once, leave a message and let it be.  I get wanting to be noticed and talked to, but calling six or seven times and leaving multiple messages?  Really?? Let’s not abuse the fact that Misha is awesome and GAVE OUT HIS DAMN NUMBER.
