I also am not too fond of folks that say its for the "drooling masses" or that the movies are "least common denominator" fare.
That pushes my buttons, too. Every time someone tries to frame the debate as "The Fans" versus "The Masses," my hackles rise and I start arming the photon torpedoes.
And I think it's even worse than just "real fans" vs. "the masses". When someone gets called, basically, a dumbass, stupid, or some other variation of a "drooling" idiot because they like a movie, I think that crosses a line to personal insult and I'd bet, easy, that most of the people here who like the new movies don't need to have their "fan cred" questioned. We didn't just show up in 2009.
Exactly this. I've been a fan of Star Trek in all it's forms (Except TFF*) since September of 1966, when I was five years old.

*The only thing I liked in TFF was the ship's lounge with the tall-ship wheel.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.
