There is a dark side to fandom. It is when zealousness and passion takes a turn towards the dark side of human behavior, fueled by the weaknesses and insecurities of certain individuals.
For three years there has been a concerted movement of detractors, fueled by lies and hatred, and even supported by CBS during the lawsuit.

A couple of these individuals even devolved into full-blown stalking, following my girl friend and I around in public and at Star Trek events.
