It seems to me that you want them to not take the booing personally, but to acknowledge the love when you choose to show it. You can't have it both ways...
Disagree..we do not love this team ONLY when they're winning. We love them all the time, that's why we boo, cause we're frustrated. The people who didn't stick with this team thru the late 90's and early 2000's are the ones who are the fake fans. The ones who stuck it out, and have gone through 17 frustrating years since 94 are the true fans, and I'm sorry, we have the right to boo.
I've had this argument with people a million times. Some people choose not to boo, some people do. Both are a fan's right when they go to games. I don't knock the people who don't boo..and I don't want to hear from people that say I shouldn't boo. Doesn't make either of us less of a fan, and I am diehard as it gets.
