I never once thought this would become a trend for myself. Here it is, I read comments on ign articles. There I said it. I never registered to post, I only read comments.

 They are so "fanboy" drivin, so uneducated, so random. It has, seemingly, taking over my reading on my phone. Maybe one calls it toilet humor. I do, because the only place I read it is in the tiolet. That being said. A said article can be about, for instance, a CPU. After only a page or so of comments this will turn into a argument about the fall of the berlin wall! It literally changes in seconds.

Anyone else have a fetish involving watching the next "car wreck" like this?

Btw, this was posted via my iPhone via the tiolet.

I love going into the posts and finding the dummies who can't spell.  Or who rearrange letters in common words.  It's funny because they'll often write it correctly the first time and then swap two letters in that same word the next time, and you think it's just a typo or something, but then they write the same word a third time and it's the wrong way again.

Takes a special kind of maroon to do that.

Even more amazing is reading comments at news sites like CNN.  You would think people who were interested in current events might have a step up on places like GameFAQs or somewhere like they.  In many ways it is even worse because people post some insane shit when you know they should know better.

I had a friend that was a year ahead of me in high school and the dude was wicked smart.  After graduating he joined the Navy and went through their nuclear school where he eventually became a nuclear electrician's mate.

We corresponded for a few years after high school and since this was back in the stone age it was via actual letters.  His handwriting was the neatest I have ever seen.  It actually looked like block type it was so neat.

Dude couldn't spell a word to save his life.  He would often misspell a single word multiple times in a different way each time.

People are often just smart in different ways.

I've noticed some people at NFL.com that are so horrific, my mind can't comprehend that it isn't an act. For instance:

"I MAKE PREDICSHUN FOR SUPER GAME: SEEHAWK GONG WINNED VS RED SKINEDS THEN WIN VS PACKER THEN WIN VS BRONCIES THEN WINNED VS FALCSOCNS IN SUPER GAME. WHAT YOU ALL THEINKS?"

In contrast to chuckling at online people with horrible spelling and grammar, it's also immensely fun to watch when someone tries to publicly mock one of those posters, only to find that the bad speller is posting from Bhutan or something and learned English as a 9th language.

True enough, but stupid never surprises or amazes me since I generally expect it. 

Sadly, it's the smart, kind, courteous one's that surprise me.

I've never found Engrish to be the issue on those forums - IMO its easy to spot when lack of literatacy in the language is the issue, and I personally cut those posters a lot of slack. It's the kids who think they're uber 733t making bold statements based on utter bullshit that I find the most funny.

God help me....I like reading the tinfoil hat twisting posts at CNN.  I'm constantly amazed at the depths of true madness and paranoia there, and I can only imagine it's worse at more extreme sites. 

That said, the toilets at GoDaddy are in some sort of "Dark Territory" where no cell signal, wifi, or anything else can penetrate - I have to read the crazy in my browser.

You are very observant!;) Well, I like pooping. I love pooping and reading!!! Autocorrect does indeed suck. I can't remember what I was typing recently, but it changed it to "my homies". Wtf!?! I do not believe I've ever used those words. icon_lol
