No cameos allowed in SMG, escuse as to why Peach wasn't playable in NSMBW, Putting Mii's and Wuhu island in EVERYTHING, etc. I mean fanboys/fangirls he can do WRONG sometimes. He is only human not a ''god'' as you all proclaim!

B-but... I honestly thought it was funny. :/ And don't get me wrong. It wasn't just because it was from Nintendo. It was just cheesy enough to be funny, and I appreciated that.
Am I crazy or something? T_T

Fanboyism is like the modern-day digital version of witchcraft. Anyone can and will accuse someone of fanboyism, but only to reinforce their own opinions. It has no objective definition, and is solely based on one's own subjective interpretation of another's subjective rejection of your subjective opinions. A lynch mob of insults and nerd-rage, naturally, is the only true way to reprimand them. Sure, you've disagreed with people before without accusing them of being a fanboy, just as long as they don't disagree with you too much. The interesting thing about the internet, however, is how wide-spread and varied opinions are to the point that different perspectives will reach the end of every spectrum depending on whatever website you happen to be on. What is completely normal and widely accepted in one web community is the most outrageous piece of intellectual trash that has ever defiled the human mind on another. So what I'm getting at is: if fanboys really do exist, then you're all fanboys. Or fangirls. Everyone is. No exception.
Still, the obvious hypocrisy and arrogance of crying "fanboy" isn't actually the worst part about the ad-hoc inquisition to persecute
hereticsfanboys. By persecuting fandom, you're essentially saying that positive opinions are bad and negative opinions are good, even if that's not your intent. And people wonder why there's so much hate around the internet. It's ok if someone just hates everything, or is completely apathetic, but god forbid they have the nerve to be in their own little world where they have a reliable and fulfilling source of enjoyment and happiness that just so happens to be unpopular in your little section of the internet.
