I don't understand why some trek fans are incapable of getting even the simplest humor.

The Shat goes on to say:

I think itís time for J.J. and I to have another sushi and let me put him straight about two of the largest franchises, and not employing me in either one of them. I think heís just foolhardy.
I mean Jesus Christ, people!
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.
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
