Haters always seem to go against everything I like. So what I do is I find something I can't stand...(a song, car, person...whatever) and let then know how much I like it. They pretty much wind up backing you up, even though they think they're putting you down. :-)
i just ignore them, unless they mess with me, at that point, i give them one warning to back off, usually, they will either do just that, or they will throw a punch, which is a really bad thing to try with me.
