It seems like every time something goes mainstream a group of people automatically start hating it. Sometimes the hate is justified, sometimes it isn't. But what is the point? Why can't people just respect other people's interests? For example:
World of Warcraft Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Star Wars (fans used to get called nerds when it first came out, from what I've heard) Star Trek Stargate Universe Twilight Warhammer Warhammer 40,000 StarCraft II (Battle.net 2.0 does suck, but the actual gameplay is average) Halo Facebook Call of Duty: Black Ops Dungeons & Dragons American Idol Xbox/Xbox 360 (I admit, I kind of hate Xbox, since it ruined gaming) Google Justin Beiber (this is justified by the fact that he's 16 and hasn't hit puberty) Hannah Montana
Because everyone is jealous of success of things they didn't make/do
Actually most things I hate, I hate because most people don't shut the fuck up about them. I conformed to the hype of Facebook but I will not conform to the hype of Modern Warfare 2. That list you posted, I didn't know half those things were "hated" in large numbers.
Riveting tale, chap.
