I don't think it's a matter of importance, it's about feeling pissed off. For example you feel pissed off when you've done a lot of work on something only to feel in some way unappreciated

To some people it might be a hobby but it's very distracting which is why people can get quite worked up about things, and if you put a lot of your (free) time into it only for someone else to slag you off, it's quite bad, you feel incredibly bitter. Also I don't think it's about being an uber-geek of the week at all, sometimes you just want to get on with it and NOT have to be the centre of attention.
