    You can still love him and be his fan in your own heart and mind. There's no need to involve him in your social media accounts if you don't want to. I was completely wrapped up in him for many, many years before I ever had internet, or a computer and before I ever got involved in FB, twitter, forums, etc. The MJ fan base is definitely a minefield and it can be exhausting and unhealthy at times.

    All I have to do is watch something like his MITM performance from Oslo 1992 (which I only discovered today) and all of my feelings flood into every part of my body. I remember why I became his fan in the first place and everything else just melts away, into white noise.

    I’m glad you said that. I’m new to all of this, and while I was busy for a few weeks and wasn’t really active on Twitter, apparently two huge fights among the fan base happened, and I ended up on some people’s block list without ever engaging in any of it, presumably merely based on following people from both camps. Due to those people blocking me, half of the posts in those discussion threads aren’t visible to me, so I can’t even really figure out what it was all about. But all for L.O.V.E, I guess.

    I have no idea. Some people from each camp blocked me, I can’t read half of the conversation.
    And I don’t really feel like asking, fearing it might start all over again.

    In this context it’s a metaphor for a situation where you can’t take a step without taking a huge risk of triggering an explosive reaction. Like in a war zone, where there are mines everywhere.

    I understand what you mean. there's always fights breaking out. everyone has their own opinions but it really doesn't need to be fights about what's the best. i'm glad to be fan of mj but some fans. some fans makes us look like nuts. also they claim to spread Michael message but i don't think Michael message was to fight and argue with people.

    and it's okay. i was only asking. it's really best to be a fan something outside the internet because some people are crazy. especially when it comes to Michael. this fanbase has it bad and good. but i think what make this fanbase bad is the fake lies about Michael and the fans that are nuts. through what makes it good that we defend Michael and he has fans all over the world.

    ever fanbase have their own bad apples just you would think the mj fanbase would be "like" Michael. there are some fans that are. then some fans that not very Michael like.

    Yea I know what you mean. I don't talk to my friends about Michael or post about him on my social media any more because 1 of them believes he is guilty and the other is on the fence and it's not my place to bombard with them information because that would just annoy them and they'd think I'm a crazy fan. Michael played a huge part in my life and i do hold his music very close to me it's just sad that this is what I have to do because of how the media obsess over him.

    This might hurt you but i'm gonna be real. they are not your friends if they can't respect you what you post on your social media accounts. that your account and you have the right to post whatever you want. i lost some friends last year and don't give freak. anyone who believes Michael is guilty is totally off my friends list. called it selfish or whatever but it's my darn social media account. friends should not tell you what the freak you post on your account because that's your account. okay if you talk with them in person in real life okay. you don't have to talk about him with them in public. but your social media account is your account and how YOU express yourself.

    Screw Them.

    There's plenty of people who were part of the fan base on social media for quite a while, but later stopped because of the whole environment surrounding it, while continuing to be Michael's fans. I think more and more people will do the same over the next years.

    Also friends should not control how the heck you live and what you do in your life. if they doing this leave them. they are toxic.
