3) TOS is so dated it crosses the "B-movie threshold" and you simply accept the special effects as stand-ins for what was intended, and/or find them entertaining in their own right (so bad it's good). I know the latter certainly applies to some of my cherished original-series Doctor Who episodes.

This sounds reasonable. The newer versions with the updated CGI effects look terrible, I want the 60s version back.

You people are embarrassing. A guy manages to overclock a processor to 7GHz and all you can do is bitch about how you can't do anything with it. Do you make fun of people who climb mountains or build with legos because there's no practical purpose to them?

Nobody is saying this is useful. It's just some guy saying, "Hey look, I got my processor all the way up to 7GHz!", stop taking things so seriously.

What does an animated Japanese television show have to do with whether comics are a valid form of literature? Not only that, but a show that is essentially on the same maturity level as South Park. That's like saying all novels are trash because of Jersey Shore.

But with so many in the Linux community being almost religious in their hatred of all things DRM it will be interesting to see if they will allow or tolerate Steam being on Linux.

Allow? Does RMS secretly have an orbital death laser? Is Linus going to nuke Valve if they don't open-source Steam? How would anyone besides Valve have any say in whether Steam will run on Linux?
