"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.

That particular B&W reasoning couldn't really be any more wrong here and it's so incredibly irrational. And I consider every person I know to be very irrational so when I use the adverb incredibly
, it's meaning has a lot of weight.
