Never saw anyone asking this question, but if it's been asked, please direct me. Anyway, like probably everyone here, I like reading the posts on DoA about how people have taken their dolls places, or shown people like parents, and teachers, or classmates, etc,... While reading these stories, a lot of times I'll see someone include "Don't worry, the doll was fine..." (or something along those lines) in stories centered around really benign situations. I'm not talking about having actual incidents where there's a real reason to tell someone the doll was fine - like falls, near falls, and the like - I'm talking about situations where there's no info given that the doll was in any danger. Now, while I can't say nothing that day didn't warrant a scare, but I can say that nothing like that was mentioned in the story. So, why in your opinion, do you think that a lot of owners want to tell other members that the doll was fine? Do you think it's to reassure other members? And, if that's the case, why do they think they need to reassure them? In Addition: Do you think it may be a reaction to the "elitism" that is perceived, or real within the DoA community? I'm curious to know what everyone thinks, because I've overlooked this situation until now.
