American Idol Fans Love To Make Dumb Comments

Yes, it's true. American Idol fans love to say dumb things on the Internet. Because it is, after all, the world's greatest Karaoke contest.

Or was.

I personally have been a fan of the show since Season 4 (Season 9 just ended, for those of you who don't follow). I can tell you with a reasonable amount of knowledge that the show is going far downhill.

The show's fans seem to be going down with it.

Another Dumb Comment About The Oil Spill

This one really deserves its own page.

We all know about the oil spill. We have for a good month now, right? BP has been trying to plug up the massive spewing leak in the Gulf Of Mexico. We all know that, right? Not Blair.

People Love To Make Dumb Comments About Homosexuality.

Ah, the gay thing.

Seriously, how in 2010 does something so irrelevant to today's problems use up so much of people's time and energy?

This article talks about Morocco being a relatively gay-tolerant Muslim country because, among other things, they're allowing openly gay singer Elton John to perform there. As is no secret, the world's Muslim nations are notoriously intolerant of homosexuality. And while Americans claim to be more tolerant than Middle Easterners, some of them have almost as long of a way to go, judging by some of the comments made by people, some who even claim not to be homophobic.

Yeah, right.

Sporadic Smart Comment, May 26, 2010

Let's move away from depressing politics again, and go to the lighter side of life: the entertainment industry.

A friend of mine introduced me to a cool site called Necole Bitchie. Necole is like a female, attractive version of Perez Hilton, only less annoying and more focused on Black artists. The link I provided will take you to an article about how rapper/actor 50 Cent just lost 60 pounds to play a cancer-stricken football player in a movie.

Now, while I think abusing your body the way 50 Cent did to play this role is dangerous and probably not worth it, it was his choice to do it and no one else's. And while I was one of the people to make WTF sort of comments over it, and many others were, as you'll see below Necole Bitchie's article, my favorite is by Kenni, the NB reader who called out all the haters:

More Wingnut Birther Goodness

Wow.

That's what I always say when I run across people who swear up and down that US President Obama, despite the solid, proven facts that state otherwise, is a Muslim of Kenyan birth with a forged American birth certificate and a made-up family history. These people are known as 'birthers'.

They're also known as wingnuts.

These birthers just get crazier and crazier with each post. These people are so upset that their President isn't the usual fat, old, white guy with the WASPy name, that they can't accept his legitimacy to serve.

The Following Comment Is The Dumbest Yet

I'm at a loss for words right now.

Okay. Say you're reading this article about how police in Mexico are searching for that guy who produced "Survivor". See the title of the article? (Note: Yahoo! News is famous for changing the titles of their articles as the update their news on the same page rather than adding new pages, just FYI)

Mexico searching for TV producer in wife's death


Now, after seeing that title, would your first reaction be like Craig's?

I hope she is found unharmed....



Note that he comment was made shortly after it was announced that she had died. As I've said before, people...

There Are No Smart Comments This Week - Only More Dumb Comments.

Sorry. No "Smart Comment Of The Week". I guess the next time I find a smart comment, I'll have to call it "Sporadic Smart Comment, [date]".

I must have looked at hundreds of comments on dozens of articles this week. Every time I saw a comment that looked like it was going to blow me away with it's combination of knowledge and basic common sense, something happened that ruined the whole thing.

I had such high hopes for Yahoo! News poster 1534c. I thought I was going to have a SCOTW until I read the entire post. 1534c's heart is in the right place, as you'll see in the first part of this comment, as posted underneath this article:
