I find the whole "Trekker" thing slightly silly, but, to be fair, I have no memories or personal experiences of ever being on the receiving end of "Trekkie" as an insult.
Is this actually an issue out there in the world these days? Is "Trekkie" actually considered an insult in some quarters?
Granted, my high school years are decades in the past, but I don't remember the word "Trekkie" being thrown in my face. Nor was this ever an issue at any of the mainstream jobs I worked back in the day.
