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. 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. 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! 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. A critic or person who criticises can. If this then leads to an affection for something they may become a fan. Simple as that! 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. 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. 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. Again. Wrong argument. I am certainly not saying a fan must like everything. Nobody did say that. You just created that argument. 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. 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. Uhh, okay...if you insist. Is that because you perhaps like there music? Lets say a majority? 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.
