Magical Misunderstandings

As an avid fan of the Potter phenomena, all I live to think about is Harry Potter and his wondrous world. So, naturally, my internet homepage is the World's #1 Harry Potter Site: Mugglenet. This allows me to be constantly updated on all the latest and hottest Potter news. Such as information about Rupert "Mr. Whippy" Grint and his ice cream truck full of 99's. Really, it is great stuff. I access the internet this morning to find this headline:

Potter director David Yates frontrunner to direct The Hobbit?

In this particular article they ask you, the reader, what you think about it. Well, I told them what I thought:
- I am insistent that Peter Jackson return to Middle Earth.
- And David-the-Potter-Film-Ruiner shouldn't be allowed near it.
A few people seemed to agree with me. I was pleased. I was not so pleased when my opinion was torn to pieces and stomped on by two boys in Mexico. Sure, if I don't want people to argue with me, don't post, I get it. But these boys took it to the next level. I tried to make it better and explain to them that the magic just isn't in the movies like it used to be. (That was my nice way of saying that I hate David Yates and that he destroyed the last two films.) Do they let it go? No.
They continue to call me a "book purist", "dumb" and that I "cant be considered a real HP fan". Insulting my loyalty to the magic that is Harry Potter is just. too. far. I was hurt and aggravated; but I decided the opinion of two idiot boys - who clearly have no idea who I am - has no affect on me. Plus, my faithful Facebook friends, as well as many other users on Mugglenet made me feel much better.
If you are interested in seeing the exact event, you can read the entire discussion here. I am the user Jengardium Leviosa. Clever, huh? And the boys that attacked me go by Sanmarpotter and Alvispotter. If I ever visit Mexico, those Muggles better be prepared. Though I do thank them for inspiring me to finally use my blog.
