It's the fan boy syndrome. I never knew there was a single thing wrong with Wesley Crusher until the internet. I never knew that there was anything wrong with that Voyager warp 10 episode until the internet. I never knew there was a problem with Seven's tight suit until the internet. I never knew Enterprise wasn't "good" until the internet. The Usenet fan boys want to make the rules from their D&D office in Mama's basement.
