    Long-time lapsed listener coming back and trying to get back into the show. Just wanted to comment/put a different spin on the discussion about fandom you guys had near the end of the show. I think that people you know not allowing your dislike of something is less about something you did than something you didn’t do. I wouldn’t take it too personally as I kinda think it shows how much they value your opinion. People want validation in all aspects of their lives whether they admit it or not. They’re just seeking approval. We are highly social beasts even if we fight it. They’re just looking for someone whose opinion matters to them to validate their interest in something. I think it’s just a by-product of human nature in general and not a fandom thing. I think it’s just sometimes inflated by the niche nature of certain circles. The farther outside standard social norms people have to go to find their individualality and sense of self, they more viciously they defend it. A lot of us were fans of comics and comic culture when it was not nearly as mainstream and alot of our self images are tied up in that struggle to defend our love of the medium and the culture surrounding it. All that said I love the fact that you guys don’t always dig on the stuff you read and the differences in your tastes. Its one of the things that makes your show so unique and interesting. Don’t ever change and never stop giving your honest opinions. You guys are the best.
