More times than I could possibly keep track off, as I know you have as well.Well said--it is another example of the kids believing their new "toys" are the end-all, be-all of everything. Their fandom blinds them from even the most modest consideration of history. Certainly, you have dealt with that kind of mentality in this forum on memorable occasions.
Now defending their current "heroes" at the expense of all others, or reality itself, I understand....but t still gets me....just for their own...self-respect...why would they "declare" something as a fact when in fact, they just made it up?? I guess they really don't care if people who know better read their post....they just don't care if their word has any integrity.
