The Canadian Idol fiction community has gone through similar arguments experienced by other fandoms (author/character bashing, the definition of constructive critiscm, flaming, etc). ci_slash has adopted the "if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all" strategy, and involved members of kerfluffles have mostly appeared to leave arguments behind.
