So Gene wanted him to be annoying when he wrote the script/concept? They have to be tolerable teenage geniuses on tv.
No, he just was. But doomed to be so.

But does the OP mean then or now as an adult?
Both.

Perhaps if Wesley were a French teenage, who spoke with a British accent, you'd like his voice better.
Mini Picard? No thanks!

While I have problems with the way his character was written, I've never had a problem with his speaking voice. It's really just normal/average.

My wife would.

When Picard became a kid for an episode he was so much more awesome than Wesley.

Exactly. Wasn't it Chase Masterson who dropped in here a few years ago and found some awful remarks about her? I just mean, treat people how you'd want to be treated...

Yeah I asked a few months ago if we had any celebs, and got the Chase story. And I saw Rick Sternbach on a thread this week.

Yeah, but something like "Wheaton, you suck!" is different from criticizing physical behavior patterns he's had for 40 years.

Re: Anybody else find the way Will Wheaton talks annoying?

His voice doesn't bother me, but that single L in his first name is infuriating! Two Ls were good enough for our Commander Riker, but nooo. Not for Mr. Wil Wheaton! Gotta be hip, gotta be cool, gotta be stylin' and profilin'! Mr. Wil Wheaton, Mr. Wesley L. Crusher, Mr. Big Shot Teenage Driving The Ship Guy! Pfft.

Ok, I lied. I don't really care.

Anybody else find the way people feel free to create topics like this annoying?

I think that sums it up.

And it always seems to be new people that do it, asking a biased question apparently seeking support to prove their opinion is correct. And they often end that original post with a variation of "Don't you agree?"

Not at all. I wish they'd make him more of a semi-regular on The Big Bang Theory.
