1. Who exactly IS Miss Fandom Manners?
A. Miss Manners is an enigma. A fluttering, glittering, gleaming piece of internet lore who exists on the peripherals of reality, somewhere between our world and Neverland.

Practically speaking, she is a cover for many people who may answer letters, from regular comm maintainers to guest speakers. Miss Manners will always be sensible, but she may sound different from letter to letter. Chances are, that's because she IS different.

2. Why the hell should we listen to Ms. Fandom Manners?
A. Because she is smurt. Seriously. We all run across the asshats of the internet. Ms. Manners is dedicated to helping people NOT act like "that guy". She doesn't claim to be expert, but she has a brain, and she believes in being sensible and coherent - not rude and pointless.

3. What's with the Care Bears?
What, you don't like Care Bears? What are you, prejudiced against LOVE and FUN? Also when this comm began, there was an ongoing theme of Care Bear/Atlantis porn terrorizing seperis' journal. (Also Vore. Please don't ask us what it means.)

4. My letter wasn't picked! Why? Do you hate me or something?
A. Yes.

No seriously, Miss Manners picks letters based on what she can have the best response to, the position of the heavenly bodies in the skies, the whims of Fandom Seers, and whether or not she can figure out what the hell they're about, for the most part. It's not personal.

Dear Ms. Fandom Manners,

I regret to inform you that the link to this post from the community profile is gifted with a surplus "l", being http://community.livejournal.com/fandom_manners/1417.htmll rather than the wholesome and proper http://community.livejournal.com/fandom_manners/1417.html that was probably intended.

I remain your obedient humble etc.

Dear Ms. Manners

I was wondering: is this project still active? I have encountered or been made aware of a few issues in fandoms that I would like to hear your thoughts on. The idea is brilliant and it would light up my day to see some of your letters in my LJ feed.

Curious User, who profusely apologizes for replying to you but was worried the message may otherwise not be read, and politely ask that this comment be destroyed once it has been read.
