I still remember having 2, or 3 other people in a GDT actually support him like me, while the rest bashed the hell out of him. Now he's got a huge fan base here ? He's awesome all of a sudden, a great signing, etc.

There's no fanbase more bi-polar and hair pulling than this one.
I believe that on that subject, there were more "eating crow" than "I was always a fan". Again, there seems to be a reg. season Gill and a playoffs one. Don't kid yourself, I'm pretty sure we'll see a whole lot of "Awful Gill is back" posts in the first weeks of the season. And then we might eat crow again if he can pull off what he did in the last playoffs when it will count the most.
