Just wanted to clear that up for all my Lupin-loving friends who must have been all like "Wha???" I think we've all had our moments of temporary insanity in debates on this forum. That was mine.

I cried reading Lupin's story on Pottermore. Really. I did.

We can infer a lot of his background from what JKR writes in the books, and we know he had a lonely childhood. But the bio really fleshed out his isolation and made it real. I can't imagine what it must have been like to be Remus before his arrival at Hogwarts. The biographical information on Pottermore is just bone-chilling, and for me it made complete sense of the depth of his bond with the Marauders.
