The 8 Most Obnoxious Internet Commenters

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.

This is the internet, if we want to believe some dudes can catch sunglasses on their face like that, who are they to take that from us, dammit!

      …and I believe sir that you refer to NaClO unless you were meant Cl2 which would be fine for producing Hypochlorous and Hydrochloric acid – you could thus disinfect your pool.

  • chinagreenelvis

    They forgot a few:

    The Shill (self-explanatory)
    The Guy Who Argues With People He Basically Agrees With (me)
    The Disinformer (commonly seen on The Pirate Bay, posting things like “TROJAN FOUND KAPERSKY”)

    • chinagreenelvis

      Not to mention The Guy Who Points Out The Fact That The Way Disinfo Handles Comment Paragraph Spacing To Make Up For The Fact That Most People Don’t Double-Space Between Them Is Really Screwing Up The Formatting For Those Of Us Who Do (also me)

    • Camron Wiltshire

      Yes, the Shill is definitely a necessary edition. 

      • Camron Wiltshire

        addition, sorry was busy farting

  • adam

    I think “The Ron Paul Supporter” really ought to have their own category.

    • ScorpZ

      I thought that was #2.. I don’t see political activists talking about any other candidates..

      Ron Paul!
      Ron Paul!
      Ron Paul!
      Ron Paul!
      Ron Paul 2012! 

      We get it! You want him to win. But we are smart enough to realize this is impossible. 

      • Alis

  • DeepCough

    Just by visiting this site, you’re officially #2. Coincidentally, there are a lot of turd opinions here as a result.

  • Simiantongue

    9. I’m a ranter. I usually find it difficult to say anything in less than a hundred words.

    • Calypso_1

      Given the usual quality of your posts that hardly qualifies you as one of the ‘most obnoxious commenters’.

      • Simiantongue

        Thanks, nice of you to say. Maybe not one of the “most obnoxious”, but It would certainly qualify if it were a top 20 list. lol

  • VoxMagi

    I want honorary mention as #9: “Dude who regularly forgets that extreme sarcasm is often hard to recognize online without a disclaimer and winds up with people taking him seriously for comments that were wayyyy beyond the boundaries of good taste and probably shouldn’t have been made in the first place.”
