Often when I read fandom meta (or any meta) I am struck by how the lack of specifics hamper not only discussion but understanding. 

TL;DR: People are silly.

Fan 1: I refuse to associate with moose. Moose are scary. Moose should not be allowed to roam where they can scare me.

Moose-world: Hey wait, I resemble that remark. I am not scary and I am a free range moose and have been one since the beginning of time.

Fan 2: You are invalidating her feelings and just proving how scary and evil all moose really are.

Moose-world: No, you are being the scary one, trying to whip up hate and anger and exile for all the kind and generous moose that have existed (and will continue to exist). Shame on you, you…you….Moose hater.

Fan 3: I for one welcome people who understand that moose can be scary and that we all need to work together to prevent them from trampling the tender shoots of grass.

Moose-world:  Tender shoots of grass? WTF did that come from?  Are you actually arguing that we have to start floating six inches off the ground?  You realize how crazy that sounds?

Fan 1: A moose bit my sister once.

Me:  Ouch. Moose bites can be pretty nasty.   Perhaps you can put up a sign so that the moose will steer clear. 

Fan 4: You don’t get to tell her what to do. A moose bit her sister once. And it hurt.  Really hurt. It’s not her fault that a moose bit her sister once.

Me: ??

Management:  We apologize for the fault in the subtleties. Those responsible have been sacked.
