Yeah. If someone doesn’t like the first 100 books written for the setting it might not be a setting they really like. I know it’s such a huge leap that it just might be a possibility.
woah. I’m not saying anything about you in that post. I’m just saying if someone does not like the fluff in hundreds of books published in its first couple decades that it might possibly be an indicator that they don’t like the setting. And that is not extreme. If someone tells me they didn’t like the first 100 episodes of Star Trek. That may be an indication they won’t like the show.Ah, of course. Prioritizing newer work when looking at the modern era of setting totally means one doesn't like...ya know what, that's enough sarcastic snark for me today.
You're misrepresenting my arguments and making a BS gatekeeping argument as if it were a real counterpoint to the strawman you've constructed.
Claiming that people don't really like the franchise being discussed when they won't come around to your view on it is the sort of garbage I expect to see from randos on twitter.
