Is there any monolithic group of people dumber than Yahoo commenters?
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 08:48 PM by WildEyedLiberal
Sports stories, news stories, entertainment stories, relationship/fashion stories, doesn't matter - anything posted on Yahoo is guaranteed to draw the DUMBEST assholes on the internet like flies to shit. I realize the anonymity of the internet inspires stupidity, but at Yahoo it seems a hundredfold more idiotic than any other heavily-trafficked blog or discussion site.

This isn't even the dumbest I've seen, by far, but of all the innocuous stories that you'd assume wouldn't spawn stupid commentary: http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/big_league_stew/post/M...

Seriously, what the hell is wrong with those people?

4. Well yeah, but that's a given
People on Yahoo can be idiots about things you'd think it was impossible to be an idiot about, and manage to drag any discussion into a sexist, racist, offensive gutter.

Freeperland IS the gutter, so, really, there's nowhere else for those fools to go...

6. Yes
There's a local site called NH Insider. The regulars make Yahoo gang look like the friggin' Bloomsbury Group.
