Right now I am reading a book by Thomas J. Roberts: An Aesthetics of Junk Fiction. It has some original views, such as describing the rejection of literature of a genre you don't like as an "allergic" reaction. I wonder if such antipathy follows content or if it also applies to form? Is the reaction against MOO's among mudders, or the ice-front between those who prefer LpMUD or DikuMUD of the same nature as between those who read fantasy and those who read modern romances?
