Why people want to pigeon hole what sci-fi is is beyond me. Who cares?
Because words have meanings.
Oh, bullshit, you pull this crap too often. Stop trying to use YOUR tastes to decide what is and what isn't science fiction. It's very tiring. If it has speculative fiction in it then it's sci-fi according to most people's definition and since art isn't an exact science you just have to go with the majority when it comes to "genres."
No, I don't. If the majority is wrong, then they're wrong. I'm not going to lower my standards just to fit in. This is why words exist: To communicate information. If I'm in the mood for a cheeseburger, I don't ask for a cucumber sandwich; and when I'm in the mood for Asimov, I don't ask for Lovecraft. They are different, and there are different words to describe them.
