The first step is admitting

I have something to tell you.  I'm addicted to reading Internet forums and comments pages.  I know it's an addiction, because I keep doing it despite the pain I know it causes.  Sure not all commenters and posters are idiots, such as the bearded god of sexy manliness you're currently reading, but they do exist.  For instance, looking at the discussion pages for Hop, I came across a discussion of someone telling me that it is my moral duty to boycott.  This person had discovered that one of the three writers spends some of his time writing a "pornographic" web cartoon called Angry Naked Pat.  I looked into it, and can safely say it isn't porn.  It's just the oddball adventures of an angry man who happens to be naked.  It's got a similar style of humor as Family Guy, minus the cutaways.  And what do you know, Seth MacFarlane also wrote episodes of Dexter's Laboratory and Johnny Bravo, so I guess I can't watch those either.
Another idiot wants to know why Matthew Vaughn makes different movies.  Sure, he started as a producer behind the likes of Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, as well as Snatch and Mean Machine, with the similar Layer Cake as his directorial debut.  But then he made the Neil Gaiman fantasy Stardust., followed by costumed vigilante Kick-Ass.  Now he's making a character-driven superhero movie in the form of X-Men: First Class.  Why can't this man just stick to a single genre, it's so confusing.
But, the thing I hate the most is people's undying love of a particular actor.  Look at any dreamcasting for a slightly out there or eccentric character, and if you haven't seen the name Johnny Depp by the 10th comment, don't read the 11th.
