Absolute last post on this because I am sick to hell of people getting up in arms about it. Stop sending me messages about it, please.
1) Don’t go insulting him on twitter, that’s just sad.
2) He clearly was (and says he was) talking about Gallifrey Base, which of course the writers should ignore. He doesn’t know or care about tumblr or livejournal or what-have-you.
3) He’s One of Us. Geeky obsessed fan arguing about Doctor Who on the internet.
4) He said “sorry.”
5) Steven Moffat is my favorite person (yes, including Matt Smith) working on my favorite tv show. Be nice to him.
6) This is pretty damn funny stuff.
In honor of #Moffgate
crystalsoulslayer asked: Moffgate: Not really a gate at all. More of a Moff-screen-door. Or a Moff-garden-fence. Or a Moff-jar-lid.
Really, people. Do you even KNOW how much of a geek the Moff used to be? Did you not see the part where he called himself mad? Of course he wasn't being serious. You all need to calm down.
And his rec.arts.drwho posts are legendary.
#Moffgate is just a flippant exaggeration and I’m sure his comments were also a bit facetious.
I’m watching Coupling right now because the Moff is my one and only. Don’t worry, all is well.
star gazing: I wish the Doctor Who showrunners would stop being so overwhelmingly negative about their internet fanbase. ›
I just read an interview with Stephen Moffat in which this happened:
Can you tell me a bit about the role River Song will play in Series 6? I was surprised to learn that she’s kind of a polarizing character.
Polarizing in what way? All our feedback is tremendously positive.
Well, I found a…
I felt really bad for mattsmithshair’s owner. I think she’s mortified.
I’m ok. It’s like that line from Mean Girls where that one girl says, “She punched me in the face once… It was awesome.”
I am actually a much bigger fan of Steven Moffat than I am of Matt Smith—and I still adore him—but it’s a bit rude. Although it’s not like he’s actually seen the blog or anything, so he’s just responding to the description the interviewer gave him.
He does have a point, though. Doctor Who is for the average viewer, not the fans. If you’re familiar with gallifreybase.com, a lot of fans there are actually crazy. These people took every opportunity to insult RTD when he was running the show and they’re doing the same to Moffat. They brought Helen Raynor to tears because of how they reviewed Daleks in Manhattan. It’s just a show, there’s no need to insult anyone over it…..
Anyway I’m sorry to keep posting about this but I kind of have to.
ohmygallifrey asked: I think Moff's statement proves that he's just jealous that 'stevenmoffatshair' does not exist.

amyinthetardis-deactivated20130 asked: This is a invention-of-the-term-moffgate appreciation ask. Moff bless Moffat's name and all it's customization glory.
baskervilles asked: Steven Moffat is like your dad telling you to get off the computer and go outside. It's not that serious, idk why people are taking it as a personal insult that an Old Person is mildly horrified by the internet.
I STILL <3 YOU MOFF
Agreed. This is the most reasonable ask I’ve seen about ~*Moffgate. My personal blog is (still) a Steven Moffat appreciation blog for this reason.
Look, here we are enjoying tacos together!
