I think that and jealousy. I guess it is a price of being the greatest, some people want to try and knock you off that perch. The FACT that Paul is the greatest and most successful composer/musician in the past 100 years just rubs people the wrong way. Why, who knows?
Otherwise, why would you go out of your way to criticize the man or even listen to his music to bother to give an opinion? I can't stand most of the contemporary acts (Gaga, Perry, Kanye, etc.), but I don't bother to find their videos on YouTube so I can criticize them. I ignore them. Paul's greatness, for some reason, seems to irritate people to the point of obsessively going out of their way to dismiss him.
If I hear one more idiot say "John Lennon WAS the Beatles" I think I will puke. Better yet, I think I will just ignore these morons. If Paul truly did suck, then these people would ignore him, too.
The fact that he has done something so magnificent at this late point of his career annoys the hell out of these haters.

I feel sorry for these haters. I guess some are trying to be clever, some have nothing better to do, some like to see their words on-line.
I wouldn't pay it any mind, as a wise man once sang "intant karma's gonna get you"
Now back to the NEW lovefest
