There are some great people here. It's not just that comment (I've never noticed that poster before that comment), nor this website. I've noticed this
trend in consciousness everywhere online and in entertainment. It's the comments in other peoples' posts that are idiotic that really annoy and
depress me. It's more what I read than what I've personally received. I hate the song no matter who sings it, ya know? It's not a positive or creative
influence on my consciousness. I'm not inspired or mentally stimulated by it. I think it's cutting and acerbic rather than clever and funny. It bores
the ____ out of me.
I read the headlines on other websites. Most of the news here isn't 'breaking' for me. If I was into stars and flags, I'd post breaking news and stuff
about guns. There's a total lack of interest on my part to continue posting things and having people call me stupid or tell me what's wrong with my
post. Why would I do that? What's the payoff? Intelligent conversation and sharing of information was what I was looking for. That used to happen for
me online. Did the aliens abduct all of the cool people or what?
It's a reflection of society, not ATS. This site is one of the best-if you want to play that game. I don't. I don't want to be the acerbic, derisive
commenter nor the one who baits them by posting something. I'm not into arguing as a means of stress control nor have I a need to seek out people to
fight with online. So, what am I doing here? Really.
I know enough of these kind of people in real life. They're a dime a dozen. You know, the kind of person that when you say something as neutral as,
"It's a nice day!" They'll start arguing and tell you why it's not a nice day. Of course, their part of the conversation will take 10 minutes. They'll
have to list all the problems they have with your statement that it's a nice day. I don't care for that. That's kind of what forums are all about.
I'll leave them to have those discussions with their cashier at the grocer's or the perverted neighbor who peeps in my windows at night. I've got
better things to spend my time on. Online trolls can hang out with government shills. Heavenly! To be a Mod would bore me to tears. Moderating 12 year
olds, shills, trolls and role players? Augh! I don't even enjoy reading their clever little put downs.
Maybe I'll be back after a break. Burned out on that redundant tune for now.
