I totally agree. It just seems like with each new season the fans have bitched about changes and the show has ended up better and better (a few lulls in season two notwithstanding). I loved season three but who knows, maybe they'd rather mix it up than ever get comfortable. Sometimes I think TV needs more of that, lest we all get bored and move on - see: The West Wing for a great example.
If by "large numbers of its fans" you mean the tiny but vocal minority of people on the Internet that have to bitch about everything on television rather than just enjoying it, yeah, I can see where you're coming from. Each season all The Walking Dead fans get together and complain about behind-the-scenes crap that usually has little to no impact on the show itself, just so that they can hear (or read) themselves doing so. Meanwhile the show is great, save for the fact that it's paced a little too slowly at times. Whose fault is that? Who cares. It's a fucking television show about zombies and probably the best one around right now.
Rakuten is also the somewhat scummy conglomerate behind Linkshare, one of those ever-so-lovely affiliate link advertising go-betweens. That alone would be enough for me to mistrust Kobo (my experiences with Linkshare have been awful), but let's go ahead and admit that Kobo is a distant 4th place behind Amazon, B&N, and Apple in the ebook market – possibly even Sony. And what should THAT matter? Digital Rights Management. If you're into ebooks, but them from someone that you trust will still be around in 5 years. You'll be glad you did.
Fucking dirty hippie.
