Don’t worry, we love you :)
I can’t speak for all Nerdfighters, but I feel like people judging you for how you became a Nerdfighter is not in the spirit of Nerdfighteria. It bothers me when people talk about “fake” Nerdfighters because if you want to be a Nerdfighter, you are one.
That is literally the whole premise, Rule #1 of nerdfighteria. We aren’t some exclusive club. Tfios is the gateway drug for so many people. I understand that for some it’s strange because wow change wow people, but anyone who says you can’t be a nerdfighter because you started with tfios is forgetting to be awesome.
Proof that nerdfighters are made of awesome! :)
