The stupidest comment ever

Q: How stupid can people get?

A: FUCKING STUPID! That is how stupid they can get.

Q: Are the stupidest commenters on the internet to be found on YouTube?

A: Yes. Yes they are. There is a lot of competition but a special sort of stupid can be found on YouTube.

I am trying to distill stupid YouTube commenters down to the most stupid they can possibly be. This is somewhat challenging. I think I need to somehow crystallise how some people demand I hold the exact opposite viewpoint to the one I have just expressed. I get that people can disagree with me but how can someone be so stupid as demand I completely reverse my point of view and think that is an even vaguely intelligent thing to say?

Seriously, they actually seem to think this will work. As if the only thing I have been missing my whole life is their dazzling insight and now I will completely change who I am because they have enlightened me.

Fucking morons.

There is no limit to stupidity

If there is one lesson that is continually reinforced to me online, it’s that there is no lower limit to stupidity, hypocrisy and bigotry. Every time I think I’ve seen the lowest/most pathetic form of these behaviours, a new idiot happens along to outdo the other idiots I’ve seen. There was a time I tried to actually engage with people who held opposing views, particularly when I believed I could disprove their theories with objective evidence. It soon became apparent that logic and reason did not work with some people. In fact, the further out on the loony fringe people were, the less interested they were in listening to solid evidence that contradicted them. And even when the views the people held were not particularly loony, if they held them particularly strongly and emotionally, engaging them was a waste of time.

They didn’t want to debate, they wanted to shout down their opposition and batter them into submission. That might sound ironic coming from someone prone to outbursts of rage towards those judged and found wanting. An important distinction is I do it for entertainment value. These cretins demand that you “debate” them and then their contribution to debate amounts to nothing more than histrionic shrieking. I was interested to discover there was actually some scientific research backing up my first hand experience. Researchers discovered that with many people, when you showed them solid evidence that contradicted their world view actually dug their heels in harder rather than accepting that they had been wrong.

If you’ve ever wondered how truly absurd conspiracy theories manage to stay alive, now you know. The truth may well be out there but it seems far to many people are going out of their way to avoid finding it.

My favourite type of online idiots are the ones who make their sub-troglodyte intellect (or lack thereof) abundantly clear for everyone else without realising they’ve done it. I found another example of this recently when I stumbled across a video some loser made on YouTube attacking me. There’s nothing particularly outlandish about making videos like this, after all, I go out of my way to piss people off when I don’t like their views. A reaction is what I’m after. It’s a shame that none of these attack videos have ever managed to be particularly entertaining or make any cogent points. But then, that’s usually why I attack morons – they’ve got nothing to intelligent to say and they make too much noise saying it.

While I make it a practice to not dignify these losers with a response and also encourage my viewers to ignore them, I can’t actually control the response other people give these attack videos. They show up occasionally in the “related videos” next to my own videos, my viewers see them and sometimes choose to go on the attack. This particular loser seemed shocked to discover that after he launched an attack on me, someone might retaliate. Poor diddums. After copping a bit of a hammering for his stupidity (and I will point out that his video was particularly stupid – a mix of totally missing my point [possibly deliberately] and rejecting peer reviewed science in favour of stuff “he just knows”) he stopped allowing comments on the video. Which is his right.

A brief digression on the topic of blocking and/or deleting comments: whatever method an individual chooses for dealing with troublesome commenters IS THE RIGHT CHOICE for them. They don’t even have to be consistent. Nobody has a right to dictate how someone deals with things in their own space. It’s worth noting that the people who would argue with this view most vehemently are almost always the worst sort of troll – nasty, hateful little losers with absolutely nothing worthwhile to offer. And I mean it when I say people don’t have to be consistent or even “fair” – however you feel on the day is fine with me. I don’t care if someone makes some outrageous pronouncement, bets nobody can offer contrary evidence, deletes all the responses that proves them wrong and then follows up with a triumphant declaration that nobody offered any contradiction.

If you don’t like the way someone deals with responses, don’t interact with them. It’s that simple. You won’t find me arguing with people on their YouTube channel or blog. You won’t even get me leaving them abuse. If I don’t like what someone is saying, I don’t waste my time on them. I do all my abusing via my own channels.

So back to the loser who got upset that people responded to his unprovoked attack on me by attacking him in return (to be clear – I have never launched an attack on this loser or even mentioned him by name, he isn’t worth it). He updates the description on the video to say he isn’t allowing comments on the video because the mean responses were hurting his pwecious widdle feelings. And then IN THE VERY NEXT SENTENCE he attacks me for deleting his comments on my channel. The fact that he’s unaware of how that makes him look like a hypocritical brain dead douchebag just about blows my mind. I mean, to be such an outrageous hypocrite is not so unusual. But to put it on display so blatantly and be unaware of the fact you’ve exposed yourself like that is right up there at the pinnacle of fuckwittery.

Sometimes I will block/delete a troll based on their first comment. I’ve had so many of them over the years I’ve gotten used to the various flavours and have a feel which ones are a waste of time. But this particular moron was known to people who I know so I decided to give him a chance. Several chances in fact. I told him quite explicitly to shut the fuck up because he had nothing of value to say, I wasn’t going to “engage” with him so just drop it. When he wouldn’t shut up I went so far as to say he was on his last chance and if he wouldn’t shut his drooling pie hole I wouldn’t stop at blocking him, I’d delete all the comments he’d made on my videos so I wouldn’t be reminded that I’d been stupid enough to give the ignorant fuckwit a chance to behave like a reasonable human.

Needless to say, he didn’t shut up and I took the action as advertised. He wasn’t supposed to be happy with that. It was supposed to piss him off. I get a little thrill of glee picturing the outrage on the greasy visage of these losers when they realise their precious “rights” (nonexistent though such rights are) have been taken away from them. And there isn’t a single fucking thing they can do about it. Seriously, that feels good. And while I knew he was a clueless moron, I didn’t think he was quite stupid enough to out himself so blatantly and obliviously by blocking comments and then immediately after raging against the injustice of me blocking him.

Like I said, no matter how bad you think you’ve seen people behave, there will always be someone worse. On the internet, there is no lower limit to stupidity and hypocrisy.

A love letter to the haters

You come into my house, firing your gun in the air like you’re some sort of cowboy.  You think that you’re going to scare me, that you’re going to disrupt what I’m doing.  But this is my house.  My rules. 
You can make noise but you can’t hurt me.  The laws of physics don’t apply here.  I control the limits of what happens.  You can fire your gun into the air but I have things set up so eventually you have to put the gun down on the table.  You don’t have any choice about that.  And what do I do with that gun I’ve forced you to put down?
I put it in your fucking mouth and I pull the fucking trigger.
You gave me that power.  You placed all your being into that stupid hater comment.  You can lie all you like but it doesn’t change the truth.  Everything that’s you is in there and now I can destroy you.  I can choose my method as well: I can spray your entrails all over the walls or I can simply erase you from existence. 
None of your protestations to the contrary matter.  None of your false bravado means anything.  You have declared to the world that you are utterly meaningless.  You have told everyone that you’re scared of me.  I have something you could never have.  I do things you could never conceive of doing.  You’re desperately jealous.  And desperately afraid.  It’s that fear and sense of inadequacy that makes you lash out.
You delude yourself that this tells the world how strong you are, how you’re above it all, how you’re keeping it real.  All you’ve really done is write in letters 100 feet high: “I’m scared.”  And for those who say it’s only the internet, it doesn’t count, I’m only doing it “for the lulz” – you’re partly right.
You don’t count.
You don’t count and you never will until you come to terms with some simple concepts like respect and basic human decency.  Without that, you’ll never be any more than a passing annoyance that’s instantly forgotten.  Treading in dogshit has a more lasting impact than your comments.  When I scrape the dogshit off, the smell lingers a while.  When I destroy you in comments, when I delete your comments, when I block you… you’re gone.  You cease to have any relevance.
At least the dogshit served a productive purpose once.
So I’ve got your number.  You’ve got nothing.  And I don’t care.  I don’t want you to change.  I don’t want you to apologise.  Because that would change nothing.  You still wouldn’t count for shit.  You can continue to delude yourself for your whole life as far as I’m concerned.  That won’t change the truth.  You desperately wish you had what I have.
And you’ll never have anything I want.

My addiction

I think it’s time I came clean.  I have a serious problem with addiction.  I’ve tried to give up but I haven’t been able to kick it.

I can’t stop baiting morons on YouTube.  I know I should be a better human about it but they’re soooooo stupid and it’s sooooo easy to rip on them.  I’ve been having a funny experience over the last few days on YouTube since they featured one of my videos on the Australian home page.

It’s actually the video I posted earlier in the week where I expressed my amusement at the proposal to crush cars belonging to hoons.  Now that it’s being exposed to a larger audience all the sad acts who define themselves according to their penis-compensating cars are coming out of the woodwork.

And so I taunt them.  I keep saying to myself “just one more, then I’ll quit”.  And then I’ve done it twenty times without realising it.  Ah well, I’m planning to set up a support group for fellow sufferers,  Maybe I’ll find the cure one day.
