The Online Idiocracy

Typical YouTube comments...*sigh*

We’re really starting to hate the internet. Well, not the whole internet, just the contrarian douche bags who feel the need to spread their craptactular ideas to every message board and comment form available. Although satirical, the Onion was really on to something with this article—just what is the “local idiot” thinking when they decide to spew out this garbage? Are their real-world lives just so miserable and lonely that any online attention is good attention? The Word aptly referred to newspaper message boards as “the most formidable argument against democracy since Plato”—and honestly, we sort of agree. But, at least the YouTube Comment Snob eases the pain.
