Nah man, its shilling.
Shills are just salesmen. Sales people can't talk about the flaws of the product they're trying to sell.
Actual fans are willing to discuss flaws of their favorite characters. Story-lines they want to see, villains, supporting cast etc. They'll shit on writers or artists who get the character wrong etc. Fans are willing to make fun of their own favorites.
Think about it for a second, fans of popular characters such as Spider-man, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Wolverine, Deadpool. They have a sense of humor accept flaws, will rage about bad story-lines (OMD for example) and still after all that still love the character . Now compare those threads to this thread, Carol threads are so dry and lack any humanity.
