    To keep with your metaphor:
    The awful behaviors you’re describing sound to me like the behavior of the Ephesians when the “Diana of the Ephesians” and other gods were challenged by Paul (Acts 19). Touch of unacknowledged idolatry on the fans’ part? That could explain much of the vitriol.

  2. Wow! So much stupidity and nastiness. My own metaphor would be ice cream lovers fighting online with insults or occasional death threats because someone prefers Rocky Road to Butter Pecan.

    I quit watching Star Wars after Revenge of the Sith. If you keep watching it, okay.

    A lot of my loved ones dislike the series. Some dislike Sci Fi altogether.

    That’s okay too.

What do you think?
