    And yeah, the article is condescending - but it's Time. They think they're the best. Always like that.
    I haven't watched 300....but I agree, there are a lot of people who love 300.

    But, aren't you supposed to talk about things that even mildly interest you on forums? A thread is made and answered by people interested in a topic, which usually happens to be something obsessed over (the manga sections...). No bored/obsessive people on the internet = no forums.

    +1, yap. 300 altered the history so much....
    I found that the talking about 300 is more intense in other forum then in here. They even make some jokes from it. Some only understandable if u played DoTA. ^_^.

    Fanboyism ? Hmmm, i only have that kind of feeling toward Final Fantasy Series, C&C series and WWII history i think :P

    I think the article just makes a gross generalization about what they call "geeks". I've met a lot of people that you could call a geek, and yet they don't do any of those things.

    Am I the only one that noticed this article practically denies the existence of the fangirl?

    I've been online since I was twelve, and ss long as I've been on the internet and around teenage girls, I've always seen a trend towards fan-obssession being a gradually more female-dominated thing. It may still be mostly male, but that sure as hell isn't a 90 &#37; or above thing anymore.

    good point, i still have energy in my body to use =D

    well... a friend of mine calls me nerd... but we tend to annoy each other, so i think it's just normal u_u

    ----------
    ...that youtube clip is... weird

    another way to find geeks is by writing "cosplay" in google image section

    Fanboys? I don't think everyone here fits that category.
    I haven't seen 300, a lot(if not all) of people here doesn't to cosplay and I don't even own an Ipod. :P
    I like manga but its a hobby not my life. ^_____^
    some of them weren't bad (I've seen that Tifa cosplay a couple of times and I still like it)
    proof that cosplay isn't for everyone. =_="
