…is that there is no solution.
(EDIT: I wrote this while I was protesting the SOPA and PIPA bills, which is why I wanted to wait until midnight to post it. Meanwhile, as I was doing some clothes washing, truechaoticneutral thought up quite a few solutions. Many of the suggestions in that post should at the very least be considered by the mods and the community itself. Also, I crossposted this every-fricking-where.)

Prepare for the TL;DR with some popcorn or a soda.

So for those not in the know, there has been a lot of contention over the current season, Suite Pretty Cure. There has been a lot of negative thoughts about this season, some deserved and some not. For a lot of us who are enjoying the season, the criticisms have been plentiful and irritating. This doesn't mean that people can't complain. No no. People have been complaining since Fresh. They did it through Heartcatch as well. Disagreeing with fellow fans isn't going to change, nor should it change. 

You know what I want to change? The repetitiveness of the complaints. The way some complaints are phased i.e. "This season sucks because it doesn't meet my every waking whim." Because when it come right down to it, I'm not enjoying myself at the LJ community anymore.

However, I've got questions for both sides of this issue.

For the side that hates(hated) any of the seasons while they were on air:  )

As for the other side that is irritated by the criticism and over-negativity: )

So those are my thoughts. The Pretty Cure fandom outside of Japan was a small one. Because of the hit season, Heartcatch Pretty Cure, and other reasons, there has been an influx of fans. But the negative comments and the backlash to those comments aren't anything new. I remember when Fresh had review after review of bashing. I remember when Heartcatch had rants against it. This kind of thing isn't going to stop because we don't all like the same things. But that doesn't mean you have to be overbearing about the things you don't like. Or do like.

All of us need to learn when to step back and repeat to yourself "It's just a show. I should really just relax."
