To Make Up For The Last Post...

As I surf the interwebs, there ARE times when I actually will read the comment sections of certain stories.  I don't know WHY I do this, as I usually just get frustrated and angry by the idiots who comment.  Yet, I read.  (I'm afraid I might have masochistic tendencies.  ;))  One thing that you find out very quickly is that there are only a few comments that get recycled over and over again.  And Linda Holmes over at NPR noticed this same thing when it comes to the inevitable 'year-end' lists we'll be inundated with shortly and wrote an article about it:  'The 20 Unhappiest People You Meet In The Comments Sections Of Year-End Lists.'

Here are a few of my 'favorite' commentators:
 7. The Self-Punisher. "I always hate your tastes, so I knew this would be a miserable and useless list before I decided to click on it and read the whole thing, and now I know I was right."
 11. The Person Who Thinks You Were So Close. "I like all these picks, but you ranked The Descendants as your #4 and Martha Marcy May Marlene as your #5, and they should be the other way around. FAIL."
 14. The Minimalist. "These blow."

Too funny!  For the rest of the list, go here.

I never will understand why people feel the need to disagree with other people, especially when it's a matter of opinion.

I tried looking at that Knitting with Dagmar thing but all it seems to be is a picture of someone's hands knitting. I'm disappointed-I expected more!

I really think that the reason for the internet is to give some people a place to be disagreeable. And they HAVE to do it anonymously because if they were that ornery in real life, someone would bop them in the nose!

I didn't try looking at Dagmar's knitting--I actually figured it was a joke and didn't really exist. :D

those are hilarious. I love how people like to argue behind ANONYMOUS names. Ahahahahhahaha.

And I love how people make the same comments on ALL of the sites--and think they are so clever and original!

Or maybe it's the same person, leaving the same comments because he/she thinks it's such a good, snarky comment!

So true.
