This is blown way out of proportion, I think it all started as good
natured teasings going back and forth. Somewhere along the line people
start reading between the lines and misinterpret messages.

>Hentai doujinshi junk on ebay"?

I am on eBay daily looking for Gundam merchandise. Trust me, on a bad day
the Gundam Wing "yaoi" doujinshi can account for over 65% of the listed
Gundam items, and that ain't good.

In the last couple of hours we had dozens of messages generated on the
"snag my cutie-boy plush" thread. Wing fans are not unwelcomed, but I
dunno about those who do not realize when is an appropriate time to move
a thread to private e-mail...

The message above can sound really mean, but I don't meant to be mean-
spirited. :)
