A few choice quotes cribbed from Youtube:

So i don't know what you faggots are talking about this game sucks and its a fail. You suck and your the fail, that goes for you damn shitty ass Halo fans as well. I bet some of you bitches are Halo fans just hating on COD, very common these days....lol

Being a member of a number of comic book and anime forums, I would say there are morons in equal numbers of every hobby.

That 1 post described everything that is wrong with this pastime and a bloody good reason i fear it`ll never be taken seriousily.Never understood why the morons that loose when your playing an online game think it`s amazingly cool or what ever to PM you, calling you a 'faggot' and making some rather curious suggestions as what you should be doing with your mother.Kinda like a timewark of 25 years for me, when at school it was considered cool to call someone a Gay Lord.My how things have changed. :lol:

Agreed, probably because the majority of the human race are morons! The internet seems to bring them out though - read any paper's user comments on an article, or especially youtube comments as above.

It could be worse. There could be gamers who take our money then never deliver goods, or who shill bid against us, or who deliberately troll their own forums...

I agree I don't think I ever read any You Tube comment where somebody hasn't started a argument.. Also funny how everybody on You tube is 20 stone of pure muscle and have black belts in ten different martial arts :roll:

Quoted for truth.

You'll find it with music, cars, movies, tv, pretty much any hobby. YouTube brings out the worst of people. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before, but I have a greasemonkey script. In firefox that hides the comments section on YouTube pages in case I accidentally scroll down too far.

That's pretty handy (and actually quite funny and slightly tragic at the same time :P )
