If it doesnt directly affect you

Post by Barbarella » Tue Jul 10, 2018 4:57 pm

I'm not sure why it bothers you?

Can we use this thread as a dumping ground for the ever increasing amount of borebags who hop into others threads repeating the above ad nauseum? We know you just want a bit of attention, but I think those of us with opinions on stuff agree:

its getting pretty.fucking.old.

Ha, someone said something to that effect in my thread and I thought same. 1) it’s dismissive 2) does not add to conversation.

I think its mostly people who either dont have a good enough command of language to put forth a succinct opinion of their own or they're too afraid to engage but they also neeeeeeed their non opinion to be heeeeeeearrrrrrrd so they take the laziest route to vaguely hint at dissent.

SAD!!!!!

I take it you just want a bit of attention then.

If someone who I don't like and or want their opinion or they are thick as pig shit but they insist on 'arguing' just for the sake of arguing..then yeah...not afraid to tell them I am not interested. As for the argument that they are 'adding' something...if it is of no value then no, they are not adding anything but clutter for me and others to read.

Yeah - the lowest expression of intelligence in a discussion is to lazily try and discredit a poster because they don't say live in America when discussing American politics. Babs is right it's lazy, doesn't add any value and reflects poorly on the intellect of the individual.

I've yet to be convinced somebody's POV is wrong because it was pointed out they are Australian and comment frequently on America. Sorry they are Arsetralian and hump daddy's leg. Fucking losers anybody who engages in that.

Like the post that Brexit which hasn't happened means that you can't have holidays in Europe which it doesn't?

I totally agree with people being called out for ignorant opinions about things which they only know about through their chosen media source.

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=184103

k2w3 is an example of what I mean (not having a specific go at k2w3 either, just saying I'm seeing this posted too often). I'm not talking about people having valid differences of opinion, or opinions full stop. I'm talking about nearly every thread where someone gets a little passionate, someone else steps in with a lazy arse "why are you letting it bother you?" post.

Why do you fucking care? You can see I care, so what? Why are you turning it around on me rather than addressing my actual post with your own opinion? And if your own opinion is: "doesnt bother me either way"

A) Not an opinion
B) Your non fucking opinion did not need to be expressed. Cos its not an opinion.

And I cant believe I've had to explain it again.

Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaysus.

So if people are getting worked up about shit that doesn't impact them, it's not valid for someone to want to know why they're getting worked up? We aren't allowed to want to understand how other people tick when we don't tick that way?

If I take the time to read a poster complain about how stressful they find Brittney from Real Housewives of Fuckville then I feel I'm allowed to ask why they're bothered. Don't try to censor me you Nazi!

I would say not valid:yes, arent allowed: No. Do what you want. Keep telling everyone whose opinions on stuff you dont have, that you dont have them. I'll keep telling you you sound stupid/lazy/scared to express your own opinion.

Well, if you mean me, first off I aint been on here much of late, or much at all compared to you. You post way more than me, way more than most. Secondly, partially retarded is kinda horrible thing to say. But at least you're expressing an opinion I guess. Albeit an awful one.
