As I read through an article about superfans, another article that began with sour experience with devoted fans of some artist, I'm just weirded out.
There was also a meme post in a fan group I observe about a random girl saying the band sucks, and the singer pointing out to wasteland "off you go". I was pretty stricken by the aggressive tone of the commenters.
I guess (and understand) you do want to protect something you care about so much, but when to draw a line.. Perhaps, shouldn't people just chill out? It's not like the artist cares too much that there are people who dislike them.
I just want to hear what you feel about fandoms and being a fan in general. Are you a devoted fan of something, or know a friend that is onw? Have had any contact with fandoms?
Wishing a lovely day,
