Earlier today someone I am acquainted with via Doctor Who fandom posted a link on FaceBook to a group asking for money on Kickstarter to perform a Harry Potter-based musical.
I replied asking several questions, since that info wasn't included on the Kickstarter solicitation page. I thought the FB poster might know since s/he shared the link. I also mentioned that the group met their initial ask and was now asking for more money, and I pondered whether this was an authorized performance of JK Rowling's material.
I was told I was being inappropriate to ask questions, and that I was being negative.
Huh? Why? If you are on Kickstarter asking for my money, I get to ask relevant questions! If you are being friendly and sharing someone's search for project funding, you shouldn't be offended when people ask questions.
I'm not giving someone my hard-earned money for a project that seems inappropriate, illegal, or just plain bone-headed. Not that I am saying this particular group fits under any of those descriptions. But if I'm not allowed to ask any questions, then how would I know if it does or not?
