    The simple answer is because it is the internet, and people have different opinions. They "hate" it because they do, and they express themselves semi-anonymously on internet bulletin boards and comment sections because they can. If you only want to hear opinions from people who agree with you, stay off the internet and surround yourself with sycophants.
  2. People are bored. They come here and act like puffer fish. Just swim around for a while until they see something they don't like or annoys them then:


    Seriously. It's the internet. You don't have to click a thread. It's annoying to see Captain Negativity in every thread. It's getting to the point where I expect it from certain people.

    Each thing a man does outwardly is simply a manifestation of that which lies within. Hatred is a manifestation of our own, unacknowledged, self loathing.

    OP, you've answered most of it. But the other part is, some people are hypersenstive and treat anything less than foaming-at-the-mouth adulation of their favorite person or thing as "hate." Most of the "why all the hate?" threads on TB leave me rolling my eyes.
