Hating And Hating Back At’cha

Contributed by promisemewings:

I’ve been coming here to popdirt.com for the last few months, and it’s plainly obvious that the comments section is mainly used as a forum for the fans and for the anti-Britney Spears fans to stir up arguments. I realize that it makes for good debate as to whether Ms. Spears is a valid performing artist or not, and to discuss her wild antics when she’s not performing (which seem to make more headlines than any actual performing talent she has).

However, I’ve also noticed that some of the arguments that go on here at popdirt.com–mainly about Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera–get downright vicious and rude and spiteful sometimes. It’s made me question some of the humanity we as boardies here have. I’ve read comments that out and out bash boardies instead of bashing either Ms. Spears or Ms. Aguilera, and it gets off-topic.

I’m not particularly a fan of Ms. Spears, but I’m not going to lower myself to insult a fan of hers. I may disagree with their opinions, but what’s the point in insulting one person’s preferences when it comes to music? Is this truly the main purpose of the Internet? I say, “Who cares if someone likes Britney or Christina? Who cares if someone DOESN’T like Britney or Christina?” There’s no point in getting so crude and vulgar when it comes to throwing around insults, and it just lowers what kind of a person you are to insult someone who doesn’t hold the same beliefs you have. I thought the world would realize this in the two years after the World Trade Center attacks, but apparently I was wrong. So just quit getting so uppity because someone doesn’t like Britney or Christina and get over it. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, and that’s one of the joys of the Internet.

    Get off your soap-box. Some people like Christina, Some hate her. Some like Ms. Britney, most hate her. Some like Ms. Mariah, Some loath her. If you don’t like the comments which are humorous, go to MTV.com or better go take a bath. It’s all in good fun. No one takes this site seriously. So go take a Valium, laugh it off and enjoy your life.

    Why is it considered a failure, the badboys soundtrack is considered a hit and it’s not at 1 million copies yet? I’m confused. Both Soundtracks have had a number 1 hit. But glitter is a flop?? weird. they all dumb.

    You are right and you make a good point. But sadly your plea wont work. The comment section is no longer used for comments… But you shouldn’t worry yourself so, just don’t take it personally, no one does… I hope. The button should read ((fight)) instead ((post comment)) LOL!

    What’s with this crap you’re writing here? Nobody really cares…we just do this stuff for fun. If anybody takes these arguments seriously then they are the real losers. It’s all fun and games. No harm done.

    Loosen up. Everything here is just for fun. This is my favorite site though. What will I do without PopDirt??? Sell unsold CDs of the Three Queens of Flop (Mariah Carey, Madonna and Britney Spears) in the bargain bin?

    This type of dialogue has flowed since I’ve been coming to this site. There have been many pleas by new members to tone down the comments/insults and they all fallen on deaf ears. Some days are good, some are bad. If you are offended easily this is not the site for you. As far as the Britney/Christina arguments go, they get too out of hand so just stay out of those threads because you will get verbally attacked. It’s sad that people treat each other this way when they don’t even know the person they are insulting; but it will continue. I think the only people who have real control over the dialogue are the administrators of this site. They should revoke memberships from people that throw threats back and forth. I’ve received several death threats from member CWAAFT. It’s absolutely crazy.

    It’s haters job to hate. I’m a hater and that want I do I hate. We all choose out battles. I choose to hate on the Backstreet Boys because they SUCK. I don’t hate on popNICKlover because she poor I’m not that mean. I just sick she is nothing more than a slut and a BITCH. I don’t hate on elgato because he is gay or whatever but I choose to hate on him because he is a PRICK. I’m a hater and that what I’m going to do is hate.

  8. brownsuga says:

    I agree with you stallion, I’m a hater too, I don’t hate on popnicklover because she likes BSB I hate on her because she lives in a trailer park and is dating her cousin.

  9. popnicklover says:

    OK, if I live in a trailer park, then you must be livin’ on the streets! Not to mention you’re dating your brother! Ha!

    Yes I am entitled to my own opinion and so what if people write stupid comments and what the hell this article had no meaning its called “popdirt.com” not lets everyone get happy and clap your hands.

    Funny how you complain about this being a pro and anti Britney forum but you had to put your digs in about her-pretty hypocritical don’t you think? Face it love or hate her the whole world is obsessed with Britney. The end.

    Being a hater and all, I think it’s pretty funny to come here and ruffle some feathers. The people who say disgusting, violent things are annoying, but it’s no big deal. Sure, it’s unpleasant to read the posts about explicit sex acts Britney, Christina, etc have supposedly performed, but who really cares? It’s not hurting anything. And as for the people who’ve gotten death threats, you guys KNOW most if not all of the people threatening you are angsty little 12 year olds trying to be big and bad. Seriously though, if you’re offended you shouldn’t come here, you know nothing’s gonna change.
