I cringe at the very word
"fanboy". The people who use that word to describe themselves are almost always blindly loyal fanatics who think everyone who disagrees with them is an illogical, sub-human idiot. I love DS9, but I don't live to tear apart everyone who doesn't think it's the greatest thing in the history of mankind. Needless to say, I agree with everything you said.
I'd like to tell all
fanboys, not just the DS9 ones, to -- in the words of the esteemed Shat -- "Get a life."
