I lIke Terra and I can understand why some people hate her but why do so many people hate her? I mean I know she betrayed the Titans but she had a good reason to, she couldn't control her powers and Slade basically told her she was a danger to the world and if she didn't go to him an even bigger disaster could've happened and she probably would've called the deal off with Slade or something if Beastboy hadn't turned against her and if she hadn't deactivated the security of the tower. I think more people should give Terra a chance
Terra's cool and it's mostly rabid BB/Rae fangirls that hate her because they found her as a threat to their shipping (which is cannon), but regarding your latest journal I have something to say to you:
I met the guy who made CryptoLocker last Friday on an IRC chat. He's Scandinavian and the virus was first pinpointed in Finland, which is where Linus Torvalds hails from and also a hotbed for expert hackers. He told me (through a mixture of refined and broken English so I suspected he translated from either Swedish or Finnish) that the virus is targeting chiefly Microsoft products and is advanced enough to affect even the XBox One and hack through the monetary programs if Microsoft stops contributing to the "corporate mass surveillance" in assisting the US government after the fiasco involving Edward Snowden. Just saying, it's ok if you don't believe me at first because it sounds a bit farfetched to you, but to ignore it is foolish. I also didn't believe him at first, calling him a liar but then he told me something else that made me believe him a bit:
According to him the virus is stealing earnings from people to aid other internet "freedom fighting" groups such as Anonymous, basically stealing to give the latter financial backup in case of anyone being arrested to provide bail. He's programing the virus through a proxy like a remote control car to target SPECIFIC bank accounts, apparently targeting wealthy contributors to Microsoft.
Then he asked me if I am anyone or have done anything notable on the internet. I said "not really. Just made an article on Encyclopedia Dramatica exposing a registered sex offender". When I mentioned ED he immediately told me that he personally knew Ryan Cleary, the encyclopedia dramatica editor who was arrested two years ago for involvement on the cyber-attack against SONY. He also said he took part on the attacks but stopped when word got out that Cleary was captured by Scotland Yard. Not kidding. He then disconnected from the chat log without saying goodbye, so I then quickly disconnected from the internet and didn't use my computer for a day thinking he may have sent me a virus. He didn't (I guess) so I lived to tell the tale.
Well, I'm different, I'm a male Terra hater who doesn't hate her due to a pairing. I hate her for how she was executed in the show (ditching the titans due to her secret being revealed, she didn't have to do that. Her personality, I don't get a hurt personality from her, I only get an unlikeable one) I hope you can understand that. Oh, and thanks for the info. can I use it in my journal?
I like her. She needed a bit more development but she actually gave off a legit human feeling unlike Raven. I loathe Raven, from her overrated character to her irritable fans and even to her equally irritable voice actress.
