I agree that doing this sounds a bit silly. On the other side you're one of the meanwhile rare sort of reader that still leaves comments on fic.

Even my more popular fics barely get any comments and I would be glad to have some feedback, anonymous or not. It's difficult to improve your writing if the readers won't tell you what in the fic worked and what didn't. But what am I complaining, it's the state of fandom these days.

At this point in time, I'd speculate that commenting on fic of a Joss Whedon show is more embarrassing than commenting on Zootopia. I have nothing to back this up, but it seems to be what happens to creators who were considered feminist a generation ago.

.. and maybe the reason you can mock them now is because they had a positive impact back then?

Um, well....just leave a comment and move on. I don't think anybody is tracking you or even noticing that you left a comment (I know I don't see who else commented on a fic i like), so really - it's kind of an unnecessary worry.

It's *fanfic* - there's always something to be embarrassed by but hey - they don't know you in real life, so who cares?

I've logged out to leave more honest reviews and not have to get attacked by it (and I try to be honest, not critical; reviews I would not be bothered by and I'm fairly sensitive), but not because of fandoms.

It's funny because I do kind of the opposite of you, OP. In the fandom I'm in now, they frown upon incest which is my pairing of choice. So I made a different AO3 from my main to post my more explicit incest fics. But I still comment on other peoples' incest fics from my main account. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I kind of give a fuck in where I don't want hate on my main AO3 and Tumblr, but somehow leaving comments is okay for me? I dunno, I'm weird.

Is Buffy embarrassing now???

sooner or later, everything becomes bashable, I guess.

(I still fucking love BtVS. I don't mind people who don't, UNLESS they start telling me how wrong I am for enjoying it. FTS.)

I don't find either of your examples embarrassing...?

Ah, I do that all the time -- some fics are quite touching, or have an interesting premise, but the quality is too dismal for me to attach my (good ;) fannish name to it.

As someone else notes below, at least I always leave kudos then, and I tend to comment too.
