This week's featured article

The Three Laws of Fandom is a meta essay by ozhawkauthor that was posted to the social media site tumblr.

The "Three Laws" component is derived from Isaac Asimov's "Three Laws of Robotics"—instructions that were programmed into every computer and android in the future.

The essay was written shortly after the release of the 2015 Star Wars film The Force Awakens and may have touched on burgeoning shipping wars (also see Ship war) in that fandom. The issues raised, however, are applicable to many fandoms across the years.
