I've been seeing a few examples of this pop up on “Stop Having Fun” Guys
, and I'm wondering if it's splittable. Basically, it's when fans of something are told that they shouldn't like that something, because it's somehow inferior.
- "Real Musicians" vs. Guitar Hero and Rock Band players. Most of you have probably seen this somewhere already; when amateur musicians tell players of the games that their hobby is stupid and they should learn to play a real guitar.
- Stage Magic fans and Professional Wrestling fans have a common foe: the people who insist on telling you that "It's fake!". Thank you, Captain Obvious, now let us enjoy it.
- As well, anybody who has ever watched anything animated is sure to be told at some point that they're too old to watch that, and it's for kids and therefore valueless.
