Fanboy meaning is up for debate.
I am seemingly the the only person that believes fanboy isn't a negative term. I said the media turned the word negative but we fan did as well by making it an insult. I am a proud Playstation fanboy and you might think I hate the 360 but I don't, I have zero problem with X box, PC, Apple, or any other fanboy. I simply don't care for the the other systems, check my comments I hardly go into 360 or Wii articles because they don't apply to me.
Now I typed in fanboy in Google and urban dictionary is the first site to pop up. I don't know if fanboy is in Webster if it is feel free to post the definition. So here is definition one and what I always thought it was. These are editing down.
1.A passionate fan of various elements of geek culture but who lets his passion override social graces.
3. An arrogant person who goes into an outburst every time something he likes is questioned. Fanboys usually acuse others of being fanboys. Fanboys caused a lot of fallouts between people when they started arguing about consoles. If you insult something that a fanboy likes, he will spam your computer up and try to insult something that you like
Now this is what I mean. The third one is a troll not a fanboy. This is what the media and us fans have turned this word into. I do blame the media way more though. I want to take this word back and bring it back to the first meaning. I know its urban dictionary but it's true.
HELP me take this word back. Come out and stop using the terms like "fan" or "pro" and say you are a fanboy. There is nothing wrong with it. I remember wanted to talk about the anime or manga and my friends would pretty much whisper to me becasue they were ashamed of it. WHY its normal and safe.
That is what the gaming world has turned into and I hate it. trollz are not fanboys trollz are trolls.
