those who comment on journal.ie

why are they so bitter and bitchy about even the most positive of stories? its like they make a dedicated effort to find fault in anything and anyone. are they just ''trolls''? they must love their red arrows.

now, its not all of them, and boards isn't perfect either, but jesus, they take cynicism to another level.

Journal comments are what it looks like when you hit the bottom of the barrel that is youtube commentators, and continue digging.

The bandwidth you used to post this thread could have been used for precious hospital beds.

Often, I will read the title of an article and then skip the article itself to read the comments. It's like standing outside the local chipper at 2am on a Saturday munching away on your chips and watching the local hicks bate the head off each other

It's aimed at a certain demographic.

Always anti government stories.

Never bash sf.

It's a 'news' site for Facebookers. I cringe when I read the comments, but I admit, I enjoy doing so.

That being said it's on a par with the IT, the Indo, etc, for inanity.

I love the way they will let every auld bollíx spout away on stories about people getting murdered or dying in car accidents, but if there's a chance that a dodgy comment could land them in trouble with libel, they close the comments. I complained to them on a number of occasions about the drivel they allow under their equally drivel articles and I was told by them that no other online news site premoderates comments Ffs, even the bottom feeder rag that is the Daily Fail premoderate their comments
