>>6744097>A true fan is somebody who agrees completely and rigidly with the viewpoint of the person using the term. It's often uncanny, how your opinions are exactly those of a true fan.
Examples: "My point of view is the correct one, and if you disagree with me you're not a true fan, and thus not worthy of my time."
"Anyone who likes Beast Machines isn't a true fan."
"Anyone who doesn't like Simon Furman isn't a true fan."
"Anyone who thinks Rumble is red isn't a true fan."
"Anyone who likes Bayformers isn't a true fan."
"Anyone who likes the kid-friendly "sequel" to the serious & awesome Transformers Prime isn't a true fan."
Needless to say, these sorts of people rather annoy most other fans, who regard them as far more likely to ruin it for everyone else than anything Hasbro is ever likely to do. They love not wisely but too well. Or they could just be jerks. This is a form of the no true Scotsman fallacy.
