The boss has already covered some of the shittiest things about comment sections before but after trying to keep the comments free from garbage and seeing the temper tantrums that would follow, I figured it might be best if we go over a few things again.
This place may be described as “a site that features mean old guys making fun of stuff” but it’s really a domain for free speech. It may not be a site with as much class and professionalism as Takimag or TheRebel but “saying whatever you want” is at the heart of StreetCarnage. That’s what made it kinda difficult deleting some of the moronic comments. It was easy to come to terms with though, once it dawned on me that these wastes of internet space weren’t so much ‘free speech’ as they were the psychotic ramblings of a handful of lonely idiots screaming for attention.
I never really understood the importance of comment sections. It seems like the internet would be better off without them and the lonely trolls, who spend all day on them, would be better served without them too. I can’t imagine someone twisted enough to not visit a site they enjoyed simply because they couldn’t post a comment no one will ever read. But it does make a whole lot more sense to have a space for dummies, who don’t have the attention span to write an entire piece, to post in than having to go through their emails every morning. That doesn’t change the fact that comment sections should be a spot for people who are genuinely interested in the topic to discuss and argue. Instead, they’re all Crazy Alley where numbskulls hold up their “God Hates Fags” signs and scream stupid insults at one another. Even this one, and it’s a fucking bummer.
I can appreciate a good a zinger as much as anyone else but why waste it on an anonymous loser who hangs out at his computer all day? You should be using that shit on your real friends when you’re hanging out, laughing, and fucking around. Typing out a one-liner, sending it off, and then wringing your hands as you wait for a teenager to respond is certified psychopath shit. Do you morons think you’re gonna get discovered in the comment section and get some ridiculous PewDiePie webseries? You’re not. The only people who read the comments are the ones who care enough about the subject covered to add their two cents. And when they see your retarded bickering about each other’s shitty usernames they say, “Eh, never mind.”
If you want to insult another commenter, go fuckin’ nuts. Just make sure you include something about the article or comment in your ‘sick burn’. That way it’s relevant and you don’t sound like an inbred Rich Kid of Beverly Hills. I know it’s hard not to hide behind a screen name and call out SpaceKook12 for getting fucked by his dad and really being KookZilly69, but wouldn’t you rather use your real name to shit on his ridiculous views and tell him to get a life? It seems like it would make you out to be the bigger man and it would definitely piss him off more.
Maybe I’m the delusional one here but I’d like to think of StreetCarnage readers as a cut above the rest. Dickheads, sure. But still better than most. What the fuck are you doing spending so much time hurling lame insults back and forth for? They’re not even good ones. The short-lived The Comment Section didn’t pick out a single one of your fuckin’ burns. That was embarrassing. You shouldn’t be pissed when your comment gets deleted, you should be embarrassed and grateful. We’re helping you and your stupid username out. Take a hint and make your comments better. Or, write a piece and send it in.
I know you guys have all the time in the world, you’re replying to comments 24/7. If there’s something you really want to say take some time, think it out, write it down, and send it in with your real name on it. Don’t be a fucking pussy. Wouldn’t you rather be a writer for the site, or do you actually tell people at ‘parties’ you’re a commenter on StreetCarnage?
