This happens with any entertainment media, but it happens bad with MMOs. Real bad. People keep playing them, even when they hate pretty much everything about it, because the damn things are designed to be addictive.

I found myself doing this with an MMO recently and it took a lot of effort on my part to break away from the game despite being beyond frustrated with it, and I spread that same sort of bitterness on the forums, just like we see here when someone gets into a show, decides (perhaps subconsciously) they don't like it, but can't stop making negative posts about it.
