To paraphrase Obi Wan Kenobi:

Gatekeepers...you will never find a more wretched hive of blowhards and nuisances.  We must be cautious.

...Joking aside, yeah, it's a great piece. I guess it touches on a wider problem in our supposedly civilized society - those that wish to be "right," to "win" over all other considerations, especailly other people's feelings or points of view. Those that are so insecure in their identities that the only way they can affirm their existence is by belittling or bullying others.

And that you so invest your personal identity into a television show that it must be that one thing and if it deviates from my perception, it's, in a real sense, the end of my world.

Fits my theory, which is pretty much everywhere these days (including the article).  You’re welcome, internet. :laugh: :giggle:

I think at this point, it’s more about how this plays out than any element of surprise. This ad campaign feels like an attempt to ameliorate some of the Internet derision about how little of a “surprise” this could elicit.
