|YOU'LL THANK ME WHEN YOU SHARE MY POLITICS!

Thus Davewank embarks on the dawn of the day after one of the most Wankalicious days in DMB fandom.
Two days earlier, Dave Matthews Band played #34 for the first time in 12 years. To mark this monumental event, a certain wanker who previously had wanked about other lj-users' "copyright infringement" posted an mp3 of it on dancingnancies. This itself was not a problem -- there were mp3 links all over by this time. The wanker was rewarded with effusive praise from many members of the community and a tiny, friendly ribbing from the Mod based on earlier arguments. And just like the United States of America at a UN meeting, the wanker flipped out about being called out on his hypocrisy, took his ball and went home. The mp3 was replaced with a sad line about how the content was removed, and later the whole thing disappeared altogether.
The wank, however, had only just begun.
Turn to antsmarching. A certain wanker had been struggling to put up pictures for a day, but finally managed it. As happy as the comm was for this wanker, they would have been happier if the fifteen giant pictures of varying blurriness had been put under an lj-cut. Several requests later, the wanker insisted that this was beyond their lj-capabilities. One request from a comm-member declaimed that this sort of thing makes people want to leave the comm, so would the wanker kindly put the pics behind a cut? To which came the Wank-Avenger: "OMG ARE YOU JUST AFRAID TO LOOK BECAUSE THEY ARE LESBIANS????:
Yes, mighty Wank-Avenger, you have it. It's not the fact that there are a series large and blurry pictures on hundreds of friendspages. It's the blatant lesbianism! Grab the torches and pitchforks!
Well, after the comm-member responded to the Wank-Avenger with, "Are you kidding me? What kind of jackass do you think I am?" the Wanker returned with a question -- "Shall I be EMO or MEAN? -- You are a jackass -- and I don't know how to do LJ-cuts or change it." This, of course, after several patient emails from the mod which both linked to LJ FAQ and even detailed how one does it. The pic-poster instead claimed that she would take all her toys and leave. What remains of this? Merely a one-line post thanking all who "aided in that debacle."
And the night finishes with yet another request for DMB tattoo help. A Firedancer, you say? HOW ORIGINAL! I WONDER WHY FIVE MILLION OTHER DMB FANS HAVEN'T THOUGHT OF THAT! If Dave Matthews were Voldemort, the Fire Dancer would be his Dark Mark. People, let's not make Dave into Voldemort. Besides, what happens when you gain weight? What happens to the slim, graceful firedancer then?
