Because its fashionable amongst the more douchey hard core dork Trekker set to Shatnerbash for some odd reason. (I think they seem to be from the same odd culture that think Takei is somehow on the same pecking order Trek level as Shatner)
And because most of them have no sense of humor
And because irony does not often translate with them
I think it's a bit of a stretch to call anything posted so far in this thread "Shatnerbashing," and your post would have been just as effective had you omitted the completely unnecessary "more douchey hard core dork Trekker set" and "same odd culture" jabs.
