Hey, everyone. I'm reviving this thread after such a long time because there are a couple of things I've been meaning to add.

I should mention that B intended to do me a favor by warning me that A was such a two-faced backstabber. But there's an old saying: "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

I think that's just a part of being human that anyone can relate to. However, I wonder if being involved in fandom, any
fandom, adds a couple of factors that can make dealing with people a little more interesting. Creative people (whether they're pros or fans) tend to be unique individuals with strong opinions, which can create or add to friction during interactions. Also, quite a few of us are socially awkward, sometimes because of autism and/or other conditions, so we may not realize when we're getting on somebody's nerves. To sum up, I'm not surprised that fandom is so full of drama; I'm just glad that there's not even more of it, and that the people on this forum get along so well.
