I’m a combination of #8, #5, #6, #3 and #2. Which are you? (Don’t lie now, all Disinfo commenters are at least one.) Via Cracked:
Under every video on YouTube or Break, and under every story on Digg or even right here on Cracked, there is a mini-culture that forms down in the comment section. The hit-and-run nature of the comments means it’s fertile ground for some really annoying personalities to thrive.
These are the eight commenter personality types you’d most like to avoid, but can’t because they’re freaking everywhere.
#8. The Non-Believer
Typical Comment: “FAKE! Did you see how that guy exploded just BEFORE he hit the tree. Fake, don’t waste my time.”
Who Are They? They like to think of themselves as the jaded skeptic in a world full of gullible sheeple, determined to be a flickering light of truth in a dark internet full of lies and fake viral videos. “No one could really fart on a birthday cake that way!”
Why We Hate Them: The guys we’re talking about here are the knee-jerk skeptics, the ones who take it too far. They have an automatic reaction to call “fake” on pretty much any video that shows anything remotely remarkable happening. They’re not doing it in some grand quest for truth, they just want to feel smarter than the room and generally suck all of the wonder out of the world.
