About anything - and everything - whether you can change it or not. And yes, this will be a thread complaining about complaints





"Music today is just nothing compared to the way it was back in the day, man!!"

-So buy a guitar, teach yourself a few chords and get some time in a recording studio or on a small stage. Ever heard of the Ramones or the Sex Pistols? They could barely play their instruments. Or maybe try this: actually be GOOD at music and become popular and make some changes. You can't just sit back and expect everyone else to do the work for you


"ATS is just not what it used to be. It's all a bunch of topics I don't like so I'm ranting about it."

-Ok, so go find some topics you want to discuss and get sources and info to back it up and we will all have a big ol' well-mannered discussion about it. And guess what - intelligent conversation breeds more intelligent conversation


"Things today just aren't the way they used to be! People are rude and my voice isn't heard etc. Back in my day we would -example- and then we'd -example- and then do some good ol' -examples-. Kids today don't understand anything! And since I have nothing to contribute anymore I think I'll just complain about it anonymously on the internet."

-People have been the same - always. People have been rude, racist, violent, rapacious, vapid, murderous, destructive.......and also, beautiful, kind, loving, caring, intelligent, thoughtful and curious, since our creation.
The 50s were not some golden age where men only had sex with women and no one had abortions and we all sang cumbaya together. Get over it.



"I just wish we could stand up against these evil corporations and lobbyists and get the attention of the government and the nation and tell them - "We won't take it anymore!!"

"Occupy Wall Street? Nah not organized enough for me...also probably funded by Soros, bunch of dirty hippie socialists..."




There are a million other examples, just thought I'd share a few getting under my skin. Anyone else agree?

I agree, and like this thread

However, I must point out that people have also complained since the beginning of time aswell. Just another thing we do.

You are what I like to call the "second generation of whiners."

Although I agree with most of what you say.

While everything changes around us on a daily basis. My cat remains the same.

I'm following his lead in this case. Sometimes you're the bug and sometimes, you're the windshield.

I am complaining about your complaining about complaining.

Why can't people complain in peace any more? It used to be people could complain to a sympathetic ear with no worries. Now days it seems every one wants to attack the complainers. Complainers have the right to complain with out fear of judgment or criticism. Complainers are loosing their rights and no one is doing anything about it. If we stop complaining people will be fooled into believing everything from music to putting the toilet paper roll on backwards is ok.

You make a good point, but you also forget that one is not capable of everything in such a short amount as our lifetime. Thus we have to choose a certain path in life, then it seems as someone gets older they seem to gain a certain cynicism about life, but that is only an observation.

My point is just that rather than just being unhappy with something, you can work to change it.

ETA: the TP's got to come over the TOP of the roll!

I do agree, I don’t like complainers one bit!! PLEASE people, stop announcing every time you have a head ache, your feet hurt, your tired… WE ALL have the same aches and pains, most of us just don’t feel the need to vocalize it every 15 minutes.

Must say I do agree that a total ban on complaints would not be good. Nothing wrong with the well thought out occasional complaint makers, it’s the habitual whiners that need stifled!

I love complains. I love complaining. I love reading about complaints. Complaining is a pressure valve. Sometimes things wind you up and you need to let it all out. If you don't like that people complain, don't complain about it, do what you preach and handle it your own way.
Its just nice to know that others might have had the same thoughts as you. Complaining has brought likeminded people together and can point out bad habits that may need changing. Its what happens in every society.
Without complaints nothing would ever change for the better because the bad habits would be taken as a norm and set low standards.
