How To Be a Fanboy

As we all know, fanboys are a breed apart, a group of rabid, half-human chimeras that will violently defend their opinions to the death, usually in broken English. To that end, Lore Sjöberg at Wired wrote a guide to being — and fighting off — fanboys. His advice is priceless and very applicable.
