I lose, and I should have known better.  
Never attempt to point out to a geek in a fandom how he's being a hypocrite. He has already determined in his mind that anyone who disagrees with him is a jerk, bozo, or idiot, as well as why and how they fail to see things the way he sees them, which is naturally the only right way to think.

Everything in fandom is subjective, down to whether or not continuity matters more or less than quality storytelling, yet the fan geek will view his opinion on such things as objective fact, clearly obvious to any right-thinking fan. Those who disagree are just wrong, and you're even more wrong to suggest that they aren't necessarily wrong and foolish.

There is no winner in that conversation, but everyone involved is a loser. Mea culpa for not learning that before now.

It's kinda like getting into a physical altercation with a kid.

You win? Congratulations, you beat up a kid.
