Very well said.

I would also say that the word "overrated" has very little meaning any more. When a person says someone or something is overrated, I generally get the impression that they say that simply because they personally don't care for that particular "entity."

That being said, couldn't we say that Stonewall Jackson is overrated? That's not to say he wasn't great, but in some circles, it seems he's reached God-like status.
