Tina Fey Fan Group Bans Scar Discussion

Interestingly, a livejournal community of Tina Fey fans has only two rules for membership.

First rule: Don't talk about Fight Club.

Just kidding. The first rule is that you have to dig Tina Fey or those who do. Sounds reasonable.

Here is the Second rule:

"Have fun, use humor and be respectful within reason. And by respectful, I mean, make your posts legible (as possible) . . . Don't spell "your" as "ur . . . and don't ask about something we know Tina doesn't like discussing (like her childhood scar or if she's bopped Jimmy Fallon). If you happen to stalk Jimmy Fallon as well, it's okay to gush about how adorable they are together (in their brotherly-sisterly kinda way). But no {EDITED} fanfic! PG13 fanfic only."

Okay, that is really a few rules all lumped together, but anyway... The fans of Tina Fey refuse to discuss the scar because TF doesn't like rapping about it.

A comedian can bash any and all others, causing untold discomfort for the targets of jokes. But a comedian's scar is somehow sacrosanct because they'd prefer not to talk about it.

Not a big deal. But interesting. Those involved in the livejournal Tina Fey fan community may be a great resource for information and opinion about Fey and Saturday Night Live, but they will offer no assistance in unraveling the Mystery of the Scar.
