Relationshipping...

It seems to me that in every fandom I join there are crazy shippers. Not just shippers, who like the idea of a couple together, and discuss this as reasonable intellectuals. But crazy shippers who declare war on any who oppose their ship, and start insulting the writers of the very texts they're shipping for if things don't seem to go their way. For a while I thought this was just a Harry Potter thing, but no, it's appeared in the other fandomverses I've participated or lurked in. Is it a universal fandom thing, or do I just join fandoms inhabited by nutters? Are there fandoms devoid of insane shippers? And are they really insane, or am I just being a jerk? :D
