Colonies and Old Lace

In the midst of an argument with Sparkthatbled over the meaning of Akiba, Ben of Colony Drop suggests that CD is on a mission of mercy:

Even if they are a vocal minority, the airheaded young twits like the ill-fated Koji Oe who have come to lose themselves in the often-creepy delights of Akiba and similar anime/manga-subcultural indulgences to forget what miserable, immature people they actually are. For the young punks like these, I think, a little invective from old grumps like Sean is not only healthy, but to some degree necessary.

Aspiring to be something other than miserable and immature is apparently a no-no.  Colony Drop, then, are angels of mercy, descending from the heavens to put an end to any ill-conceived notions of empowerment, hope, or self-worth.

Submit to the scolding of your betters, or they will drop a colony on you.
