So I've been reading up on the current events that have been taking place around the world via AOL News. And I found something that absolutely shocked me. The people that are commenting on the news articles and topics are extremely hostile, arrogant, ignorant, and stupid. A lot of them would much rather put down someone else instead of actually talking about the topic at hand. It is appalling.

Sorry. Just doing a little ranting and wondering if anyone else has run into this problem.

Stupid keyboard. Why is made with all the letters mixed up? If you don't get this check my reason for editing.

Edit Reason: BEcause I had to change the y to a u in "much" so the title made sense

Yeah i seen that in other message boards or even on youtube. People just posting to get into argument with someone and people just being stupid. That one reason like this board so much cause for most part people on here are helpful, friendly, and get along with each other.

Some people like to attack others to make them feel better about themselves, or for attention. Unfortunately its not limited to internet.

Is this your first time on the Innernets? smile

That's pretty much the status quo for any news type site that allows comments.

especially anything political. I won't even read the comments on political news stories...and sometimes not even the stories themselves. A lot of the times the political news is written with the same bitterness and slant that you normally get on the comments that follow.

I try to avoid them, as it tends to make my blood boil.

Unfortunately, commenting on news sites and youtube-ish areas of the 'net reflect the lack of intelligence/academia plaguing our country. The generations grow less and less respectable, and I don't see it getting better any time soon. Heck, I have to deal with the same jerks at the bowling alley, on my way to work, everywhere. Chivalry is truly dead.

Actually, what I should've said is that I stumbled upon the comments and the news articles. The bad one that I on was about hurricane Ike. I didn't agrue the political points well because people are too close minded to even consider what I'd suggest. But the religious zealotry and fanaticism I simply can not stand, it bugs me to no end.

Lefty,
I figured there would be some but not the exstent that F-Bomb was used every other word. What happened to a debate or argueing to enhance discussion?

eastwest,
At one time I might've agreed with chivalry being dead but there is still some left. The only problem is that it is buried under all of the idiocracy that seems to have enveloped it. Not everyone that posts comments are hostile (just look at us, well most of the time).


Tangent time: if you want to see an interesting movie check out Idiocracy. It's an ok movie that I thought was underfunded and not made the best but the message underneath it was pretty solid.
