This week's diatribe is up

Therese's recap of Because You Left is up.  Enjoy!  And then come hang out with us in the comments.

So, this is kind of funny in a meta way.  About a week ago, EW's Michael Ausiello wrote about how much he dislikes the Lost fandom:
Before you crucify me: It's not that I dislike its fans as much as it is that I dislike the feeling that if I want to be a fan, I can't just watch an hour of quality TV; I have to start decoding Sprite commercials and go see Cloverfield. I know that intricate, never-ending web of clues is precisely the reason why so many of you love the show, but I just don't have it in me to care that much over multiple platforms.
Fair play to him.  I get it.  Then he opened up the comments, and started handing out free cups of haterade.  People apparently have very strong feelings about fans of the Whedonverse and certain segments (*cough* flying fangirl *cough*) of the Supernatural fandom.

Then there was this:

I agree.... I love LOST and watch it religiously, but all the decoding makes my head hurt. The lady that writes my newspaper's blog will write a 10000 wors diatribe with like, biblical and mythological research EVERY WEEK! And during the off-season, instead of blogging current shows, we get new blogs about the seasons 1-3 (well, now 4) dvd's. Good Lord. Get enough already!!!
Yeah, she's totes talking about Therese.  My friend, you have arrived!

When they start serving up the haterade on you in the intertoobz, you know you've arrived.
