So farewell then. 15 years is a long time and a lot of water has flowed under the bridge. But now it's time to say goodbye. No more threads after this one, we're closing down. The site will at some stage become a read only site. So if you want to leave your contact details in this thread for other posters to get in touch that would be great otherwise email us at

The admins would like to thank the posters at this site. You made this site and we wouldn't have lasted as long as we could without you. So thank you. And if you want to mark our passing, please find a charity or organisation that deals with the treatment of Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD) and leave a donation. More...

Whedonesque's position regarding posting on the coverage of Joss Whedon's political Tweets. Earlier today a post appeared on the front page that linked to a less than savoury article about a recent tweet of Joss' regarding the Trumps. It was deleted because the article was pure poison, for want of a better phrase. We're not in the business of facilitating cynical "news" sites who get clickbait by perpetuating a culture war. And we have no desire to have Whedonesque engulfed by the political maelstrom going on in the US right now. Fandom has to reflect the changes in society but it also has to be a safe space for people to escape into, even for a moment. So we point blank do not want to see articles about Joss' political tweets on this site right now because the coverage of them is an unholy mess. More...
