I seem to recall having this exact same discussion with you about a year ago, where you claimed that people hated 8472 because they could defeat the Borg.
I don't think people hated 8472.
Tell that to guys like newtype_alpha, Temis the Vorta, Admiral Screed, etc. I've seen enough here to get the jist.
their introduction merely showed us that it was possible to stand up to the Borg and win. Previous to that, we'd only seen the Borg in one-ship-at-a-time quantities (Q Who, BOBW, First Contact).
Yes, and being able to stand up to the Borg is why the 8472 were hated. Because it made the Borg look bad that there was someone who could do that.
Hell, if Q destroyed a Borg armada folks would complain that he shouldn't be able to do that.
