Dude, you're taking his bait so hard.
Just to clarify, I like guru pretty well, even if I don't agree with a lot of his strongly-stated opinions. But don't you and queenv and Lily understand that whenever you get growly in reaction to them, you're giving him power? Like, the kind of power you'd like not to give him? Mirfak was right in defining the problem as belonging to people like her and guru - until you get upset about it, and then he's made his problem yours. Is it really such a problem when someone thinks your taste sucks? Does it really make a difference?
As for your confusion, I dunno if you know, guru has been coming here for a quite while and has toned down his "superior attitude" quite a lot. heh.
