If I don't like Harry Potter then I should be aloud to say that. It's general opinion and if people make a big fuss over me having a different view, that just makes them lesser than me.

38, But I never said I do make fun of HP I only said it would be easy to. I'm only stating that I should be aloud to have a different perspective even if other people don't agree.
Blackmail111 brings a whole new meaning to "TROLL!!! IN THE DUNGEON!!!" Well, I got that reference out of the way. And it's spelled "allowed". And when you have 1 thumb up less than a minute after posting your comment, everyone can see that you're really insecure, my friend. Stop thumbing yourself without protection.
40- Yes, you are ALLOWED to say you don't like HP, but when you go out of your way to join a forum just to blast something, then you would deserve being blasted, yourself. There is nothing wrong with having an opinion, but when you down others in order to make it known, well, then yea.. You are considered a troll. In this case, OP definitely deserved it.

41, I'm not thumbing myself up. In fact, I'm thumbing everyone else up and yes I know it's spelled "allowed" but my auto correct has been on the fritz ever since I jailbroke my Iphone. And I'm not defending OP, I'm saying it would be easy to make fun of HP on places like YouTube. I was replying to #1
Blackmail111- the problem we potterheads have is your insulting of our fandom in several ways. You are underestimating our fandom (there are potterheads I know who would gladly slit your throat if you insulted their OTP, although maybe not for this particular offence), you are acting as if you agree with OP in the thought that Harry Potter is just for little kids (a belief in which you are wholly incorrect) and your grammar is offensive to me personally (you're 'aloud' to do something are you?).
Blackmail111- I apologise for that, I was in the middle of formulating my comment when that was posted, however I do wonder what form of autocorrect, no matter how "on the fritz" it may be, would correct one legitimate word to another. And if you are on the iPhone there is an option to cancel any changes the autocorrect wants to make
70, I'm not losing anything. There never was a battle at all. I do have a legitimate excuse for my auto correct because it's haywire. The fact that your saying I'm losing a battle and I'm just using Autocorrect as an excuse is pure opinion. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have better things to do than continue this discussion on the internet seeing as people don't have the same opinions as I do. Not disrespecting or anything, only ceasing the discussion.
That's absolutely no excuse at all. There is no such glitch in existence. You must have the worst Iphone ever, or are trying to justify that you actually didn't know how to spell "allowed", or forgot to turn off auto correct. Nice try though. :) And the fact is, sure it's easy to make fun of HP with one post, but that post will immediately be buried, deleted, destroyed, burned in a fire, and you will be made into a jackass. Or you can do what smart people do and keep it to yourself.
Again, why are there replies when the discussion has ceased? And how do you know there's no such glitch? Are you yourself an Iphone? No? Thought so. It's really sad how people who talk with TXT language are ignored but if 1 word is misspelled everyone assumes you have the IQ of a rock and just blocks any excuse even if legitimate.
76 - I'm sorry to inform you that you are not aware of all glitches in existence. And Iphones do in fact sometimes turn into troll phones after you jailbreak them, so the "aloud" thing might actually be autocorrect. Or might not, but that's not something we can know. And there's no need to imply that Blackmail is an idiot either, he didn't imply you are.
^ it was suppose to read 'fans' instead of friends, I edited my comment in the last minute as my original comment was to this guy saying crap about Harry potter and making autocorrect excuses. Sorry for the confusion... Enjoy! Harry Potter is great and is loved by the world. Olympics opening ceremony is a proof :-)
yeah except that it is for lil kids, teenage girls and just some tardy nerds. it's just one level above twilight. and the action which was taken against OP proves me right. Clear mod power abuse, false texts with purpose to humiliate and insult and personal info giving away ( to anonymous which is most retarded thing I have ever heard). U harry pooper fans are pathetic and I bet you can't even argue about this, instead you just cry, go full buttrage, curse and do what's described in this FML all while thumbing down everything that's possible. When you'll grow up and see some real movies, you'll understand.
#163- You're confusing us with Twilight fans; THEY can't back up why they like Twilight. THEY get butthurt when someone bashes Twilight. Yes, I can back up why I love Harry Potter. Great plot, wonderful characters, even the way the books are written. I like the trials Harry goes through and how he stays strong even through everything bad that happens, and how real to life the characters are. Sure there are some things I dislike, but they're few and far between. I can't help that you don't like it, but hopefully you won't be so rude about HP and its fans in the future.
One key difference between the two is that Twilight is poorly written with a shoddy plot and two dimensional characters. Harry Potter on the other hand has an engaging plot with characters that grow and change as the series progresses, not to mention the story can appeal to people of all ages rather than just to teenage girls or mothers of said teenage girls. But honestly I'm not really sure why you or OP has to put down others for something they enjoy.
163- you are aware that Harry Potter is more than just movies right? Or can you not read? The books were amazing and actually contain content that is inappropriate for young children in some of the later books. So, sir, you should try and enter the phantasmagoric world of reading.
#163 - Please just stop embarassing yourself. You obviously don't know how complete the HP series are, I guess you're too slow. There's a reason they're some of the most read books in the world. I've honestly never heard anyone who read the book say it's shit (which I've heard several times about the Twilight series). It's not predictable, only a fool would not admit that it takes great intelligence to create such a huge fantasy universe, and if you're too tiny of a human being to be able to keep up with everything that's going on, that's your fault. It's not because it suits a child's brain and it's just too silly to make sense, it's because you just don't get anything. And I guess you don't understand that OP tried to humiliate the entire fangroup of the website, either. Wow. >.> go dig yourself a hole, really
Twilight is, admittedly, idiotic. However Harry Potter is brilliant. The books are phenomenal. Rowling created such an intricate world entirely intertwined with our own. I assume you have never read the books. If you had, you'd understand the fans, and their love for the series. And on that note, BYE. May your petty life be filled with goblin piss.
Hah, and this is what im talking about, no arguments or whatsoever. Great plot, great characters doesn't mean shit, every brain dead retard can tell me he likes scooby doo because of its originality and unpredictable ending. ANd that other guy suddenly snapping and yapping about how I don't understand such "brilliance" and how I am not familiar with books at all . All your arguments are based on thin air just because I don't like all these silly gay wand fights? And since when fantasy = intelligence? If all harry potter fans would take an IQ test, it would come back negative.
Whoever did that is a genius. Kudos to you, defending the internet against malicious trolls.
Theres Nothing wrong with making fun of Harry potter, i rather dislike it and find it not to my tastes. In my view it fits into the same category as twilight.
99, I LOVE bacon and love is amazing.... But not ponies. My reason for putting twilight and Harry potter in same category is as follows: They are both offensive (to me), poorly written, have bad movies made after them, have rather annoying fan bases(not all are annoy but many are), they're way more popular than they should be and kids are forced into reading these books in school. The Only good things about them is twilight: A surge in vampire paraphernalia and harry potter: Watching all the heavy over board Christians get their granny panties in a knot.
I only think people hate twilight because its cool to hate twilight (that and the movies made them look bad) but both of them are incredibly well written and very very good reads. And you, miss nevereyes, hate both simply because you want to be different. Your need to stick out has gone so far as to cause you to spew pure lie just to make people angry and point out that your opinion is different than others. BTW the vampire paraphernalia comment combined with your info creeped me out a little. Not the spider part though, tarantulas are cool.
119, twilight insults the incredible beings that are vampires and Harry potter mocks witchcraft. And yes twilight fans are much more annoying but Harry potter fans tend to piss me off more. 148, yes I have other wise I wouldn't be allowed to have a say on the writing style.156, once again both book are insulting to me and a vast majority of people hate twilight especially because, not only does it ruin the idea of vampires but it also is very poorly written. I'll stick to the Marked series, it shows witch craft properly, is extremely well written and has decent vampires.
Really? You dislike Harry Potter but you like that horribly written Marked series- the one with the girl who falls in love with five guys and basically stumbles through the plot? No character development, terrible writing- the only thing somewhat tolerable about that series is the plot, and even that isn't great when everything is solved by that chick (forgot the main girl's name) "harnesses the power within" and stops the immediate problem just like that. I'm not even a Harry Potter fan (indifferent to it), but I will say it's about 100 times better than Marked and 1000 times better than Twilight. I'm not even saying that it's stupid to like Marked, because I definitely see the appeal, but come on, seriously? Harry Potter trumps that shit and has waaaay less controversial content as well, seeing as you're apparently easily offended.
Im confused as well how does it mock witchcraft? How can you sit there and make fun of harry potter ? You have no real reason to hate harry potter all your excuses are garbage. I'm guessing you've probably never even read the book and if you have never read the book then you can stop bashing it stop saying it mocks witchcraft or anything negative to do with it because you know nothing. I hate twilight but I'm not gonna sit here and make fun of it. Why? Because stephanie Meyers makes millions of dollars and some people really love her books. Just like millions of people including me love Harry potter so if you are gonna hate on Harry potter 171 expect many thumbs down many negative comments and people hating on you.
I see whats going here. nevereyes, are you by chance of any type of pagan faith, perhaps Wicca? I respect the Wicca religion, I in fact was very interested in it a few years ago, myself being agnostic and interested in different religions in my search for something that fits my beliefs. I know quite a few wiccans, and all of them agree that the witchcraft in Harry Potter is purely mythological. It's what we were told magic was like as children. Whereas the Wiccan witchcraft is based more on nature and rituals. It's a completely different thing. Not in the least offensive. However there are always those self-entitled Wiccans who jump at anything that could potentially "offend and belittle" the Wicca faith, so they can shout out in defense of their uncommon religion and brand themselves different and interesting. Harry potter witchcraft is as similar to Wiccan witchcraft as twilight "vampires" are to real vampires. They are not vampires, they are sparkly fairies with blood lust. if you are not Wiccan, or some pagan religion similar to Wicca, than I apologize for my rant, but I have a feeling you are.
My boyfriend is extremely religious, but he still loves Harry Potter, because it's just a story. Neither stories insults anything. There are so many variations in the myths that there are no "true" vampires. People who claim that Dracula burned in the sun is the "true" vampire, are wrong because he didn't even burn in the sun. He could walk around and just be slightly weakened. And Dracula wasn't even the first vampire. Yes the sparkling is a little weird, but Meyer never did claim that her vampires are "the real vampires". It's just a story, get over it. I even know many Wiccans, and even once was Wiccan myself, who still love Harry Potter like myself, because it is just a story! It is meant for entertain and not meant to show how "witchcraft is meant to be". (not saying you are Wiccan, just elaborating from the other post).
I'm 17 too, and still love it. How could I not? I grew up reading the series, I saw all the movies... now I've sort of passed it down to my little brother, who is 11, and my cousins, who are 11 and 12. most of my friends love it, my English teacher (in her 30s) loves it, my uncle (in his 20s) loves it... and i wouldn't have it any other way. We'll ALWAYS love it.
The mods to that site wouldn't happen to be Alan, Didi and Sirin, would they? I didn't know they liked Harry Potter. Sneaky mods
