Returning the favor isn't creepy at all, especially if they did it non-stop
But it's Starcofags who started it all. The reason starco got mocked so much when it hit a slight speed bump and cuckposting became a meme is that starcofags used to be extremely obnoxious and shat on every other ship. Starco seemed to be carved in stone, it was the only ship with any real canon implications (not counting parents) and starcofags got a bit spoiled and cocky.
So the entire fandom returned the favor, so by your logic you shouldn't really complain
I mean frankly starco has always been so obvious I have very little sympathy for starcofags trying to play the victim. It's always been so solidly implied people should be able to take some ribbing with grace, it's not like there was ever a real chance it woldn't happen. Especially when you brought it upon yourselves by acting like smug cunts to everyone else
