[blockquote]Have you missed the point of this argument? I never said you had to like them all to be a fan of something. We are talking about the majority. Surely reasoning would have it that you must have to enjoy most (a majority) of a particular thing in order to be a fan or not.[/blockquote] There is no difference in what you're saying. You're still trying to establish standards so that you can rationalize a status, in this case it's "fandom," with requirements as though it were a badge of honor. [blockquote]You have created a false argument there. Like earlier when you said "to where you have to like them all to be a "fan"--". Nobody is saying that. Take more care now Loco. Come on Loco, you are digging a massive hole here and it is potentially embarrasing for you. You could be a fan of that particular film if you liked it quite a bit. However if you disliked the other films you would not be a fan of the Rocky series. Simple as that! [/blockquote] lol I'm not the one creating regulations and standards to protect status; sorry, but it is not I who should take care. I love the first Rocky movie, and thus be a Rocky fan. A fan of the notion of Rocky; and as a Rocky fan, I feel I'm able to choose not to like the subsequent Rocky films because in my opinion, they don't do justice to the original film. To me, fandom is a state of attitude. Just as with Star Wars. I'm a Star Wars fan, and am able to think the prequels have been pathetic outings as of far. [blockquote]A critic or person who criticises can. If this then leads to an affection for something they may become a fan. Simple as that![/blockquote] They "may" become a fan? Oh, it's you who should be careful there, my friend. lol I may be saying a lot of things, but I'm not saying who can and cannot be a fan. To me, fandom is open to anyone who wants it. They don't need a badge or merits to meet requirements to get in the club. [blockquote]But if you disliked the rest of it then you would not be a fan of it. You would be a fan of the song, not the album.[/blockquote] Why wouldn't I be a fan of the album? If it didn't have a song I liked, then I would have no reason to be a fan of the album; but it has one, so I have a reason to be a fan of that album. [blockquote]Again. Wrong argument. I am certainly not saying a fan must like everything. Nobody did say that. You just created that argument.[/blockquote] But you're creating requirements people must meet so they can be a fan. In effect, it doesn't matter if you say "all" or "majority" since you're taking the power of declaration into your own hands. [blockquote]However, you are saying that if you like one song on an album and hate the rest then you are a fan of that album. Give us a break.[/blockquote] Uhh, okay...if you insist. [blockquote]Is that because you perhaps like there music? Lets say a majority?[/blockquote] It doesn't matter how many songs, I'm fascinated with the notion of the Beatles. It's like Paul McCartney, I only like one of his solo songs, but I can still call myself a McCartney fan. Why? Because I like something he's done and respect him for it. For me, it's about the self and attitude, not having to "prove it" by meeting a minimum.
