This. The reason why so many people hate homestuck is because it's so huge - in any fandom, 1 out every, let's say, 10 fans is a bad apple. There are THOUSANDS of homestucks, which adds up to HUNDREDS of homestuck bad apples. And then most of the minor fandoms only have hundreds. It's very easy to hate such a large group of people.
