Misha Collins, Supernatural Season 8, and Stupid Interviewers Interested In Porn

Misha Collins interviewers? What is your obsession about porn and Sera Gamble? Really? Seriously? Stop Poking at the nice Executive producer who writes one or two scripts a year? Yes? Please?

I'm in the middle of reading an interview with Misha Collins, and just about the first thing the interviewer asks is if Collins hates Sera Gamble? WTF?

Oh, yeah, the interviewer is oddly interested in porn as well:

I haven't finished the article yet; I'm sure more cosmopolitan fans found this much more quickly than I. I just ran across this in my clumsily explorations on Twitter and Tumblr and thought I'd pass it on. While I enjoy reading and (trying) to write fanfiction, I fail to see why article interviewers need to bring the whole sordid fan-drama-mess to the actor's (any actor's) face and question him about it. While I'm all for reader-response critical theory, that's taking things too far. These are the kinds of questions that push fan divisions even further, which in turn encourage the writers to write scripts encouraging further mocking of said divisions.
