If one bothers to read Scaruffi's essay on the Beatles in full and Scaruffi's responses to various Beatles fanmail he received throughout the years, one will come to the conclusion that he does not hate the Beatles as much as he hates the fanbase the Beatles have managed to create. In his writings Scaruffi calls the Beatles fanbase a persistent, rabid delusional force and goes as far as to compare them to radical muslims. Even the redditor copypasta which debunks Scaruffi's musical criticism on the Beatles can't help it but agree with his stance on the band's fanbase.
Beatles cancer has been present on /mu/ as well: reflected in an old /mu/mor comic where anon goes to /a/, to /v/ and to /mu/ where he gets attacked by a rabid Beatles fanatic, and continues to live on in more recent times with tripfags like Antz and CLT promoting Beatles (and dadrock) discussion (even going as far as to UNDERRATE them). The two of them are just what constitutes the problem in modern age /mu/ - /mu/ has managed to turn into one of the internet's last bastions devoid of rampant Beatles discussion, a place where if you wanted to discuss the Beatles or other dadrock music you were forced to leave for a different community. This is on a change since recent times due to CLT and Antz forcing a contrarian mindset upon the /mu/ community in an effort to combat the memerap plague. The tripfags are using "memerap" as a premise to turn /mu/ into a generic dadrock forum, the two of them want to prevent /mu/ from turning into reddit... by turning /mu/ into reddit. The two have managed to created a "right generation" image to contrast the "wrong generation" image - believing it to be an example of a positive ideal being against a negative one - when the reality being that both sides are shit due to their black and white nature. The two fail to realize what constitutes a good taste and musical mindset - a gray area within one's combined palette of musical preferences.
