Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013
Starbuck hit the nail on the head. Rather than the moronic "Punk's a ratings fail!!1", that's what a person who dislikes Punk should be posting to get their point across, and I'm pretty sure Starbuck doesn't even dislike him. Yet people continue to troll, get trolled, and nothing gets resolved. I admit that I'm guilty of this as well. Just haters arguing with marks blindly, much like this little recent back and fourth between Choke2Death and Charlie Bronson (and it's not really a knock at either guy as an overall poster, but just saying...). At the same time, it becomes and more and more difficult for me to make a post like Starbuck's and not find myself trolling Rock marks for the fuck of it as nothing gets through to them anyway. And to be fair, Punk marks in general certainly aren't much different (marks for anyone, period aren't much different), but the Rock marks/Punk haters are far more numerous nowadays imo, and have been for over a year now, though it's gotten much worse recently.
One thing though is for people that do go out of their way to hate Punk, why? Why focus on someone you claim to hate so much? It doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I really dislike Sheamus and Del Rio (Del Rio less-so since turning face) and as such, I generally avoid most topics having to do with them, and if they're brought up, I try to avoid it unless I have something new to say, even in the face of marks claiming they're awesome and all that, though of course their marks aren't as numerous as Punk's, but my point still stands. It's a free country (er... message board for those out of the US) and you can do as you wish, say what you want, hate what you want, etc., but I don't understand what you plan to accomplish by just constantly hating someone, making numerous posts A DAY about it. To show that not everyone in the world likes him? Shouldn't RATINGS speak on behalf of that anyway? And isn't it just common sense not everyone will like the same thing?
Oh well, it's just an online message board.
I'm watching you...
