Yeah well, don't let it get to you. You simply can't reason with these idiots. After all, it's you own preference that matters.

Anyhow, I totally understand why the most of the other charas are getting kind of popular. Let us take Kiri for an example. She is pretty much bait for pedo-hikki audience and does not have any real depth in her. Perfectly same thing for Abiru when it comes to fetishes, matoi for romance oriented audience, Chiri for comic relief, the mangaka for otaku etc. Meru-chan is pretty much the only real character with real lifelike personality. Realism has never been too popular among the escapist losers that populate the anime community.
