I could see either "type" of serial monogamists discovering polyamory and feeling that it might work better than the way they've been doing things.
No, I don't think it's fair at all. Especially being aware that a lot of people who are poly now were previously monogamous and thought that was the only way to have a valid relationship. I'm still very inexperienced polywise and I find it very off-putting and rude when I see "serial monogamy" being used as a slight from other polyfolk to those who are mono.
