Minutiae and continuity in a work of fiction has nothing to do with fandom.
Well, they are the sort of things that only fans are concerned about, so I'd say they have something to do with it.

Good work makes sense, bad work doesn't.
Well, that's not entirely true. While I agree that good products are better received and are a better long-term investment, it's not like movie studios never cut corners for increased short-term profits.

Think Tolkien. He wrote his universe FULL of minutiae, according to your logic, for the general audience, since he didn't have a fan base to begin with.
Again, that is a total misrepresentation of what I said. I do believe I've made it clear.

There is no connection between audience reception and internal continuity. There is no connection between good/bad and made for fans/made for non-fans. Seriously.
I never said there was. What do you think I'm saying, anyway ?
