An analogy is in order. Praise is like a field of green grass and flowers. It's pretty, but boring. Occasionally you get something cool like a bunny or deer running through to spark momentary interest, but 90% of the time it's a snore.
Complaints is a rough and tumble bar where anything goes. People tell funny stories, get drunk and to stupid things, and occasionally break a chair over someone's head. It's more fun and interesting, and I get more laughs out of it.
General, mildly comedic stories about one's day fit much better in a Complaints format than a Praise format. So it's much easier to come up with a slightly interesting thread and shoehorn a complaint into it, than it is to make a thread praising something. No one wants to hear about how great your day went
(Also like to add, that disagreeing with threads in Praise comes across as bitter nitpicking. No one goes there to be disagreed with, they get rather snippy. But here lively discussion is encouraged and expected.)
Complaints has a lot more discussion going on than just "I hate this. I hate that, too", while Praise has a smaller exchange of replies because it's usually like "I like this. I like that, too. /end discussion."
You know, there is something I always observe and I find it really interesting.
There are people that genuinely nice and people that are really fake.
Genuinely nice people aren't nice because they are always nice 24/7. They have issues on their own, they get angry, they complain, and they realize that life is shit. Yet, genuinely nice people don't need acknowledgement that they are nice nor do they try to prove it to the world. They have no ulterior motive behind their kindness; they just do it because it is naturally and sometimes even go out of their way to not let people know they are being nice. And if someone happens to seem them being helpful, its okay, but it is not necessary
The fake nice people are people that rally for peace in the public eye and demand that people see them as nice. They will announce in several ways and make it severely obvious. They aren't being nice because they want to be nice. They are being nice to be superior; to be the "lights of the world".
Probably why the world is so messed up, niceness with ulterior motives and all.
Wow, that's a very thoughtful observation you have. I can see what you mean. There are those that are naturally that way and those that relish in wanting to seem like a saint when really it's all a show. Is that what you mean?? If not.. well, I'm not the most philosophical of sorts either way.
