Default A little rant about fans and haters

Just something I wanted to get off my chest, because it keeps annoying me...

First on the subject of haters: it's all fine and normal that you don't like something (be it a movie, a book, a video game or whatever, really), but there is a huge difference between providing constructive criticism ("I don't like x and here's why") and saying "x sucks and you're all losers for liking it!"

On the other side, we have rabid fanboys and fangirls who refuse to acknowledge the flaws of their favourite work and will lash out at anyone who dares say a negative thing about it - even if it's legitimate - thus starting stupid flame wars.

Chill guys. Chill. We all have different tastes and we like different things. Nothing is perfect, nothing will ever appeal to all people, everything has flaws - so just go have fun playing your favourite game, watching your favourite movie, reading your favourite book, etc., instead of flaming each other, kay?

It's all probably obvious for most of you guys (I hope), just the world would be a much nicer place if more people realized these things.

what you talking about man!? super junior, prince of tennis, yugioh and final fantasy are the best things on earth! anyone who disagrees is dumb!

also madoka and vocaloid sucks! losers!

but yeah I do agree. Extremist on both sides of the coin are annoying. However being a hater is the thing I don't get. It's too much energy hating so much. Just leave that hated fandom alone and go love your fandom then if you have so much energy.

Anyone who 'actually' hates something, will avoid it and not bother with even conversing about it.

Anyone who truely likes something, doesn't need to defend it so strongly.

Both types of people just have big insecurities about their own thoughts and preferences.

I can't agree with those two points more. I can't stand it when someone constantly looks for ways to bring the thing/person/whatever they "hate" up.
