Read the message carefully :) Unless I'm mistaken, he was referring that
the MERCHANDISE probably isnt selling well, which is why you have a huge
amount of their stuff for sale.
I can't imagine a big audience for Yaoi stuff anyway,since female fans are
harder to come by

As for the Jerk, I dont think it was a serious exchange, look at the ^_^

As for Gundam Wing in general, I doubt anyone has any real hatred over them
and while it is an Alternate universe timeline , the real reason why we dont
see much Wing/X/ G topics is not because we're anti- Alt Uni, but because
being from an Alternate Universe servely limits our understanding of that
timeline in general and they have less history than our beloved UC series.
for example, I dont think we could really go into how Gundam Wing is
different than the ones that came before it, the evolution of MS's in the AC
timeline, etc.
unless you can somehow add G-Unit into the official timeline ^^
