Neologism

I was thinking about TWoP today, and about how there's a certain class of person over there (and, to be fair, in all areas of fandom) who hate a show but still watch and post about it obsessively. I called such people anti-fans in a comment I made earlier today, but I don't think that really works, because when you come right down to it, those people are fanatical about the show, even though they don't like it. Eventually I came up with the word videopath, which I like quite a lot, but I think there should be a more generic term that could be used to apply to similar people in other fandoms. Any thoughts?
