I don't mind the one line replies a lot of times. Sometimes they are witty and to the point. Sometimes they are just what was needed! I suppose this
is why the mods often let em slide.
But what really bothers me are the people who write a whole paragraph saying absolutely nothing at all. Especially the people who are just trying to
bash the OP or some other group involved in the post. Instead of formulating an intelligent reply with reasons why the person is wrong or they
disagree we just get a paragraph talking about how stupid something is.
Well It might be common knowledge these people are stupid, but they still irritate me!
How about a long story designed specifically to irritate another poster. But of course it proves a point! Right? Wrong you idiot! All it shows us is
that you're good at being irritating.
Want to prove a point how about logic? Granted these people don't understand logic themselves so they couldn't use it to formulate an argument.
Instead we get the following (This is just a combination of about 20 different posts I've seen on various topics):
I think X is evil and the reason for the downfall of the US society. If X would just go away we would all be so much happier. I really hope all you
all you people supporting X know what you're doing! One day you will all understand what you have done when the spiritual presence of Y is known!
??? No we don't know anything about what you just said!
Or we get the ever present long discussion about how wonderful something is another poster just gave a good reason why it was bad.
OP Coca Cola is bad for you and causes cancer.
Reply: I love coke it is wonderful I am cracking a coke right now yum yum, watch as I drink my coke with chips and salsa it is all very wonderful you
don't know what you're missing OP.
Here is where I curse at this person but don't type it to stay within T&C.
Why not just say nothing or give a reason you don't care!
If you're going to say something please try to at least say something someone might want to read that actually adds to a conversation.
And what Pees me off the most are how many stars some of these things get! That means there are a lot of people out there who don't feel like typing
nothing but they would be happy to agree with the nothing that was just typed!!!!
