BNFs. Big Name Fans. It seems many people want to be them, and they often become instant flashpoints for real or imagined reasons.
So for my post today, let's discuss BNFs.
1) What do you think makes a BNF?
2) For those of us who are age-gifted, has what defined a BNF changed over time?
3) How is it that BNFs become flashpoints for conflicts - and is it more likely to be the situation/culture, their own fault, or is it a highly individual case?
4) What instructional BNF-related occurances have you seen or experienced that gave you insight into fandom culture?
