Yeah, and misery loves company, as the saying goes.
No one likes to see anyone succeed too much if they aren't doing the same.
Like with anything, if I like it - it is what it is, don't care where it came from.
Sure, working for what I want is a factor, esp. if the object of my desire is expensive.
I don't really let the popularity of something, based on the opinions of others (especially a poorly formed opinion), effect whether or not I'm into it.
To each their own, I suppose.
