Hahahahaha. Well played Stab, well played.
There does seem to be a bizarre amount of in-fighting amongst shounen fans. Reminds one of the console wars. I actually don't dislike any of the main three shounen shows, I just prefer pointed, condensed shows, and simply can't maintain interest over those sorts of episode counts. FMA Brotherhood is about as long as I've seen a series go and pull it off well (stay consistent, avoid filler, keep pacing, keep track of overarching themes etc.), and even it fell apart a lot at the end.
To quote Yahtzee: "To my mind, a good story is like a good bowel movement. It's only really satisfying once it's ended, because if you just keep going, then eventually your body runs out of shit, and moves onto pushing all you internal organs out your sphincter, until only a foul smelling shell remains, and anyone who wants to get in on your incredibly long poo gets turned off, because they need to have gone through all the poo up to that point to have the necessary context, and this is where the analogy is breaking down somewhat."
If you can enjoy really long stories, power to you.
