    By persuasively arguing your own opinion. :bolian: I've been trying to argue "Horizon" on Enterprise into the "Spock's Brain"/"Code Of Honor"/"Threshold"/"Profit & Lace" pantheon of Worst Trek Ever all over TrekBBS for a year or two now...

    I don't think anyone takes offense.

    I think people just grow overwhelmingly bored with it.

    At least, in my opinion.

    Do you really want to go down this particular path?

    It's not necessary. But without even going there it's amazing how for the last three pages of this thread people were accusing me of tossing a few insults at the production team of the show when I was really stating my opinion of the show itself. I guess, based on the title of this thread, I'm not allowed to do either. I'm just supposed to love it and embrace it, and not be so negative, and just appreciate the creative vision that went into producing this show, and to just be oh so welcoming of it. That's what I'm supposed to do.

    Other people have negative thoughts about the show and seem to be doing fine. Ever think it may be you that people find objectionable?

    You don't have to love it but statements like this one:
    Calling it a no-effort show is insulting the production team. That's the line that was crossed and that is the point that I will continue on. Because, like the show or not, the production team did do work. That you don't agree with it doesn't take away from their efforts.

    I can’t believe some folks are being as harsh as they are with a cartoon.

    It's Star Trek. Harshness comes with the territory. To misquote you "I don't envy the production team this task."

    You seem like you're really struggling with something right now. In post after post, you come off very upset and offended by things that no one has actually said. I'm sorry for whatever it is that has you this distressed and angry, and I hope that it passes soon. Best wishes.

    Like I said earlier, take it as you want. Every time you've ever said a movie is trash, you have to apologize to the production team from that film, meanwhile you can crawl back into your little corner and not understand hyperbole all you want

    Maybe I'm just a fan and am trying to say that Trek has sunk to it's lowest low ever here. Instead of letting my opinion pass, people think I'm insulting the team in the credits

    Or, we could just get clarification rather than lobbing insults at Kurtzman and the production team. Stating it as hyperbole is not a catch all for clarification. If you did not mean to imply that the production team did substandard work or that it was only done for clicks then perhaps clarify.

    Yet did Ebert (a well reknowned critic) have to do that every time he gave zero or one-star reviews. Does everyone you go up and chat abotu movies that says "that movie is absolute garbage" have to do that?
