This is blind loyalty (silly in itself, but not irritating). Not fanboyism. So let me ask you this. Disney just recently bought Lucasfilm and has plans to make a 7th Star Wars movie. Now I would consider myself a fan of the series and am not at all interested in the series being resurrected. So because I wouldn't really support a move that financially is great for both companies does that then fall into 'fanboy' column for you? No, it just means you're not interested in an upcoming film? I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here. There is going to be exceptions to every example/ rule I can come up with here, but that doesn't change the basic fact that a fanboy doesn't have the best interests of the company he/ she is a fanboy of at heart. To be honest I have not really been trying to make a point. I am just trying to get a feel out how heavily you leaned toward the financial success for the determination. I came in this just to hear you out and hear your thoughts. To me fan, at least in general usage, seems to be simply a grade less severe from what is general considered 'fanboy'. You just seemed to have some specific thoughts on the difference and I was curious. Most ignorance is vincible ignorance. We don't know because we don't want to know.
