460. Couldn't have said it better
I don't tune in to DU nearly as much as I used to because of the childishness of so many posters. My defining moment came when I started a general discussion post explaining that I'd been a huge Beatles fan all my life but wasn't comfortable seeing that Lennon was being treated more and more like a holy figure on the level of Ghandi. I was accused of desecrating Lennon's memory and insulting his fans, folks demanded that I withdraw the original post. On and on. It was EXACTLY as you say--sounded like pre-teen Jonas Brothers fans fighting over which brother was cuter.
