    I don't know if this thread belongs in the debate section but anyway I wanted to talk about the idiotic comments one can find on Youtube and as most of you know there are thousands of them out there.Probably millions.

    Why am I posting this?Well here's tonight examples: At a video about the Sabaton song "Coat of Arms" which is about the Greco-Italian War of 1940 I said that yes we did win that war and we kicked the Italians out of Greece etc. but we don't hate Italians and we actually love them and have no hard feelings and that the Italians treated the Greeks very well during the occupation of Greece by the Axis during WWII.I also said that we are like "cousins" etc. only to have about 14 thumbs up on my post and a bunch of Greek morons using harsh language calling me stuff because I said all the above,that we are not friends with the Italians,that if I love them so much I should go to Italy etc.Do I live in another universe?Lol.

    Then another guy,was at another Sabaton video called "Nuclear Attack" that had footage from the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombardments and the whole war against Japan during WWII and he kept calling the whole music gay,I got involved in the situation and blah blah keeps insisting that I'm a ***,that this is gay music and all that.

    Eeerr....do I have to mention the moronic comments under war or geopolitical videos?
    I've seen Turks and Greeks making the typical "HAHA WE ARE F**K ALL UOUR COUNTRY AND WHEN WE COME AGAIN WE WILL KILL ALL YOU ARE PEOPLES THERE AND YOUR SISTER I AM COME JUST YOU WAIT OUR FLAG FLYING IN YOUR CONTRY AGIAN".And the damn problem is that my own countrymen reply to such comments(well at least many of them)in the same manner....which makes me wanna go out there and say "Learn English re malaka!".
    You go to Albanian-Serbian videos oh man it's a war.You go to Yugoslavian Wars videos...OOOOH man....it's a war but you will mostly not understand a thing because they usually talk in Serbian/Croatian.
    Armenian and Azerbaijani war videos?Well more or less the same stuff.

    I even saw inflamatory comments between Iraqis and Persians in Iran-Iraq war videos!Lol!

    I've seen irrelevant guys from Europe or USA or Canada for example jumping up in such videos to comment on other people with bullocks like "why are you fighting,you are stupid you spend money for nothing" or the typical ALL-TIME CLASSIC debates about America being in Iraq and Afghanistan where a bunch of people call Americans all kinds of stuff that even I get angry with.
    How come there's so much stupidity in this world?If stupidity was a form of power we wouldn't need oil anymore,it would be almost infinite.

    Human stupidity can't be measured my dear Foin! well you can be get really angry with comments in you tube, cause every uneducated person that uses internet say his opinion and the result is what you see. And 90% of the comments are ironic or with bad feelings about the video.

    It's the one thing I hate about interaction on the internet; People think because they're a little more anonymous than in real life, they think they can act like complete jerk offs all of the sudden. I also think some people just say those things to provoke other people, well, I HOPE that they don't actually mean what they're saying.
    I once saw a comment on a video of a guy who acted well, yeah, stupid, and the comment said: "his dad had better ejaculated in the toilet"; That's like even worse than wishing someones dead, wishing someone had never existed, and he so did not deserve that.. I HATE RUDENESS!

    Its a medieval book that taking place in Scotland near Inverness(Cawdor Castle) and in a fantastic land that called Mekta(the land of dreams) The main hero discovers a coin in the castle and realise that is a passage to the land of dreams. I can tell you much more about it but Foinikas gonna kick my ass cause i m ruining his thread! So what i was tell is that to behave bad in you tube comments is unacceptable!

    Yeah. I don't want those attercops who hate Rickrolling finding a way to make all the neutral people hate it and 80s music and love "Friday" and- even worse- the short (disturbing) story "Cupcakes," or worse, whatever's worse than that!

    Oh, and by the way...

    Ooh ooh

    We're no strangers to love
    You know the rules and so do I
    A full commitment's what I'm thinking of

    Gotta make you understand

    Never gonna give you up
    Never gonna let you down
    Never gonna run around and desert you
    Never gonna make you cry
    Never gonna say goodbye
    Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

    We've known each other for so long
    Your heart's been aching but
    You're too shy to say it
    Inside we both know what's been going on
    We know the game and we're gonna play it
    And if you ask me how I'm feeling
    Don't tell me you're too blind to see

    Never gonna give you up
    Never gonna let you down
    Never gonna run around and desert you
    Never gonna make you cry
    Never gonna say goodbye
    Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

    Never gonna give you up
    Never gonna let you down
    Never gonna run around and desert you
    Never gonna make you cry
    Never gonna say goodbye

    Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

    (Ooh, give you up)
    (Ooh, give you up)
    (Ooh)
    Never gonna give, never gonna give
    (Give you up)
    (Ooh)
    Never gonna give, never gonna give
    (Give you up)

    We've know each other for so long

    iirc it's not just political stupidity being displayed in YouTube. It's like I've seen my own fair share of absurdities in all kinds of bashing. Best example would be the fact that the Street Fighter retards would go OMG BLAZBLUE IS ****ING OVERRATED where in fact the SF4 games are the real shit. I'm not bashing anything here b/c to be fair, the current Arcade Edition of the SF4 is a real class act. The first two versions, err you can just ask any neutral fighter gaming fans and they will still say the two are shit. seriously. -.-

    And Foin, if you think that YouTube are full of trolls, all you need to do is to go Yahoo! The community there just stank 90% of sheer political stupidity even amongst my own fellow S'poreans. Not to mention that in just about any and every major footballing forum, anything pertaining to Barcelona and Real Madrid will always be a default troll bait. -.-
