Yeah, http://lesswrong.com/r/discussion/topcomments/ is always full of comments in HPMOR discussions. (As of now, only one of this week's top ten comments is not in a HPMOR thread.) It bothers the hell out of me.
Everyone goes into those threads primed to be friendly to the other people, because they are all members of the same fan-fiction reading in-group. There is also a shift from "on a rationality site" mode to "talking about media" mode, where rigor in voting rationale tends to become somewhat more lax. I don't mind, but I'm part of the in-group so that's to be expected.
On the plus side, if that thread has a lot of new people drawn by HPMOR, so we may not want to subject them to such stringent standards.
On the other hand, I think we upvote (orrather, don't downvote enough) in the rest of LW too much anyway.
