I don't think I'm ever going to understand the weirdofailpagan idea that people can be like...luck-vampires, and steal all the attention and accolades that rightfully belong to someone else.

Uh, no, that's--either someone is taking credit for your work/stealing your ideas, or they're not.

If I have seven notes on some tumblr post, and someone else has three, I didn't "steal" four notes. (In fact four o those notes are probably me replying to said post with the worst puns ever.) I just have seven. I didn't mystically siphon off attention/notes/love/whatever.

It's really quite remarkable how many people have NO EARTHLY CLUE how This Kind Of Shit works. "SHE HAS MORE NOTES THAN MEEEEE" yeah okay that's not energy vampirism at work; that's social media shenanigans. Energy vampirism is a different thing from that.

Hurgh. Sometimes there's nothing otherworldly about a given situation, beyond the general baseline. Sometimes shit's just how it is because of chance.

This rant brought to you by: general wining on twitter etc. from people I don't even know.
