Sunday, April 20, 2008 = breeding ground for trolls, idiots, etc.

There was an article on Slashdot called "Internet Sites Biased Towards Supporting Suicide". Someone decided the following comment would be funny and informative to fellow readers (taken verbatim from the site):

"KILL YOURSELF FAGGOT!!! (Score:5, Funny)

Note the score of 5 for how hilariously funny this comment is. Scores assigned to comments are ranged from -5 to +5. Apparently this comment is so perfect in it's composition that every other comment made on the internet in the future should contain the soulful intellect and literary prowess of this comment. The main kicker about this comment is that these "ratings" are given by people who have had moderating power bestowed upon them by the people who run this site. Therefore, this comment is a direct reflection of the site itself. That one comment, quite frankly, makes me never want to comment or read anything on that site ever again. Another chunk of stupidity courtesy of Slashdot is the fact that I make comments in reply to articles, and they were more sensible comments than "kill yourself faggot" (keeping in mind that pretty much anyone who passed kindergarten can make a more sensible comment than that). What ratings did my comments get? My comments got 1's. All of them. More proof that people are fucking idiots.
