The alternative is that some of might be sincere in our affection.
Of course. But some folks are more unbalanced than others in their objectivity, offering only praise in a deeply biased fashion and allowing no criticism, to provide a sense of balance, to go undefended.

The decision is still theirs, however, so they are free to remain in their private utopia.
