I had to laugh when I saw Cracked round up their list of internet commenters. As well as being a cutting, humorous and spot-on characterisation of many personalities you meet online, it also serves to calm your temper knowing that some of these attacks are more about “them” than “you”.
One personality I have noted recently is the “Stumble Cynic” …
You can spot them right away when you visit their StumbleUpon page
But they go way beyond merely telling the toolbar that “this is not to my taste”. Oh no. They have to tear into every website, often with cuss words and personal attacks, in detail and with a hint of rampant superiority complex.
Out of every ten reviews, nine will be negative, and eight will have been posted in the last few minutes.
What motivates them I don’t know, but I see it more and more and I wish SU would provide the feature to “stop this person ever seeing anything on my domains” :)
Have you spotted any other internet personalities?
