Further, if I may quote the only sane man from page three of that thread (for I find it an appropriate response to the average reaction):

Especially annoying when the ordinary chest thumping is not enough anymore and certain people start getting philosophical, thinking they're all deep and profound and ****.
In summary: Yes, sure looks awful, but so did Crosscurrent
(a Star Wars
book with time travel
in it), and it turned out to be great. I'll probably end up getting it to see for myself. And even if it is horrendous, just because it is horrendous does not mean that there is a single solitary thing in it that is too awful for a fan to actually put in a fanfic; they only despise it because it isn't their
idea. And yes, I'm totally
sure that the book is just as awful as this guy says it is. He's obviously not butthurt over anything.
