I know you're probably being a bit cheeky but still, the backlash isn't "everybody else", it is supposedly a vocal minority. So you're sacrificing your honest impression coming from your own wants, likes and tastes for a principle that is somewhat questionable at best as a general rule and a false impression of who was against it? I'm pretty sure my first impression followed by years of soul searching and even trying to like them hard, has nothing to do with a bandwagon. And as I've said before, I've yet to meet all that many people who have issues because of a bandwagon. Many have very well thought out and concrete reasons for not liking them but still sticking around boards like these trying to figure things out and make their case. Maybe I've been lucky? As for the SEs (and their continuation in the recent blurry release) I saw quite a few people that I normally debated with on the awfulness/greatness of the SEs suddenly become overnight converts! Literally saying things like, "OMG, I think I get it now! That Noooo is just plain horrible!" Sure there were still quite a few defenders, but you could see the cracks in resolve starting to show. He may continue and he may push all but the newest of fans too far one day. Then again, maybe it is all over and the damage that has been done, in some people's estimation, is it.
