Why does differing opinion about store X = thread fart?
I've seen this numerous times but don't quite understand the mentality. If you've posted your 'opinion', is it not acceptable for people to post their own?
Then why is it that when poster A states their opinion. Then inevitably there is a response that differs. Then poster A comes back with "Thanks for the thread fart!"
I mean really, if your going to post your opinion on something you should really expect at least one person to have an opinion different than yours.
A thread fart to me is when someone posts about artist A or Movie B adn then someone comes in to just BASH the artist or flick without any explanation.
Someone posts how great Clay Aitkens new CD is and his favorite songs. The strengths of the CD, etc, etc.
Then the TRUE thread fart comes with:
Clay Aitken SUCKS ASS!!
Of course the farting party has never heard the new CD they just want to put someone down to feel better about their meek little existence.
I don't want to put anyone on the spot but it seems to be increasing in frequency and as soon as someone has a differeing opinion the original poster comes back with "Thanks for the thread fart!!" As if no one else can have a differing opinion without being a thread farter.
Maybe it's just me and I'm exagerating things??? Anyone else seeing this?
Mods: Move is this is in the wrong forum but I honestly did not know where to put it.
