Default Useless negative comments......why?

I am seeing so many useless negative comments on THT lately! Where are these AH's coming from? It is like their opinion is the only one that matters! Some guy posts his new boat...that boat sucks. Here is my new dock.........that is so stupid. Here is my new gun I bought with my stimulus money..... I paid those taxes and I did not get a stimulus check because I am so rich! Here is my new Argo..........glad that ppp loan forgiveness came in handy. Damn people, if you don't have anything positive to contribute to a thread or someone is not asking for advice.........just shut up!

Happy New Year!

I think that some folks try to elevate themselves by pulling down other people ("the nibble theory" by Kalil Jameson IIRC).

I think we could all (myself included) try a little harder to be a little kinder in our posts.

Happy New Year!

I paid for your worthless post with my admiral club membership. So many free loaders on this site that us paying members have to pick up the tab for.

JK. I’m assuming it’s because people are cooped up. Anyways have a great new year.

It's always been that way here and don't see it ever changing. You just have to get used to those kind of people.

It was meant to be humorous - that's why there's a rofl icon. Sorry to cause a misunderstanding dev.

I’ve noticed an increase in posts from members who think they know everything and seem to want to pick apart the ideas of others, but, have absolutely no original ideas of their own to contribute. It’s incredibly easy to find fault with what others say however, unless you have the mental horsepower to provide some original insight or better ideas, your posts are worthless and your ‘imput’ is not wanted here. I don’t think ridiculing others should be considered contributing.

Because it's easy to be a jerk when you're sitting behind a computer.

Before you post, think to yourself, "would I really say this if I were in the same room with these people?" If not, either change your post to be more civil, or just don't post at all.

Winter. Cabin fever for some. But the site has been going downhill pretty much since I joined, but gets worse each year.

Un...dev...eloped, just to inform you, I changed email and just started over. I have been on the THT for quite a while, many years before 3/17. We would discuss boats, fishing and life. We didn't measure ourselves by post count. If this site sucks just go somewhere else AH!

Because it's easy to think you have a Big Ole Brass Pair when you can hide behind a keyboard and you don't have to see people face to face. Keyboard Cowboys.

Plus, there is SO much of the information people ask about that is already here on the forum for all to see if people would just take the time to use the Search function. Search is your friend.

So now we all agree to only post things positive and uplifting, and nothing that hurts another members feelings? Okay, but I demand a participation trophy for my efforts!
