I said nothing about those who dislike fugues. Lots of people who don't particularly like fugues are capable of descernment in evaluating them. Nice try.Their opinion is only worthless to those who deem it worthless. The fact that people who love fugues don't care about the opinions of those who dislike (or don't understand) fugues is more of the same like-minded people sharing similar subjective opinions phenomena. One can say this about any music, any genre, or any specific feature of any music. Most who love country music also don't care about the opinions of people who don't love country music and deem such opinions useless to establishing the canon of country music.
It's not like-minded versus differing. It's minded versus mindless. Do I get points for concision?
