I know that Connor is one of the most hated characters from Angel.
I personally loved the Connor arc. I felt sympathy for him a lot.
I might be one of the only fans ever to have liked Connor and Cordelia's storylines (get your pitchforks).
Connor was a funny, good character who suffered at times from inconsistent writing.
Connor and Angel eventually get a bond together which is so cute and Connor is amazing in the comics like in Angel After The Fall.
So give Connor some love
Say something nice about him

I don't hate Connor at all, I'm not going to exaggerate and say that I adore him but I certainly don't mind watching him and I think he was a great addition to the show. I urge people to imagine they grew up in a hell dimension and then think about what they'd be like before calling Connor whiny. He's a survivor!

Do you mean you like them together ?
The storyline didn't bother me.
I ship Cordy with Angel but it didn't bother me .

Connor was a lot more then whiny and his back story is so compelling. I know he's not the perfect character but I love that he has flaws.
 
Connor is one of the purest heroes of the Buffyverse. He's a badass with a heart of gold, a teenager who grew up in a bloody hell dimension and is still mostly motivated by the greater good. He's also sweet and very lovable.

I feel so protective of him. He's my fictional son!

I love him !
He is sweet and amazing!
And people need to understand/look at his backstory before they judge him so harshly.

Connor was great, considering how he'd been raised. I felt so sorry for him, he'd been kidnapped by a psychopath and groomed into becoming a killing machine. It's totally understandable that he lost his mind after all he'd been through. Connor deserves lots of love :)

I don't understand the Connor hate. His mother died at child birth to give him life, his father wasn't able to protect him from Holt, he grew up in a hell dimension, his first love manipulated him in killing people. With half of that we would have become much much worse! He is brave and is a hero at heart so that is why I love him!

When I first watched Angel on air, i was a teenager, and I liked Connor, had a little crush on him. But I hadn't seen every episode so I didn't know him in context.

On my first rewatch, I didn't like Connor in season 4 at all. I like Connor in season 3, I think his attitude makes sense. In season 4 he's been manipulated too much and thus the whining. He has a few good moments, I like his interactions with Faith. He's good in season 5. The problem is the writers wrote terrible dialogue for him and didn't know what to do with his character.
