I don’t get it. There’s a guy on my Facebook bragging that he didn’t even know it was the Super Bowl until he went to the grocery store. Good for him, but why the need to go on about it?
I don’t piss on your Dr. Who Season 58 Premier Day. I’m glad something is making my friends happy even if I don’t understand all the gifs and references. I don’t need to point out that I’m not enjoying what others are.
I think maybe I’m missing the point of the internet. It’s cool, I have some beer that requires my immediate attention.
For me, it boils down to the difference between saying:
"I don’t really like/get X" and "X is stupid."
One doesn’t add a lot to the conversation but isn’t especially harmful. The other is an active effort to pollute the stream, and no one should be surprised that people are angered by it. If you say something I like is stupid (bad, worthless, dumb, etc…), what did you say about me?
