Here's your real "What's wrong with Complaints"

:iconbohobella:

And no, the answer (for once) is not the massive amount of what's wrong with complaints threads!

But really, my fellow regs, take a look at our statistics: [link]

Half of our most popular threads are troll threads.

4/5 of those are by the same idiot.

I can't help but feel like we're the idiots if we've been reduced to troll food, really.

And I might be being generous, because I really don't want to believe that our #1 most popular thread, "I'm 17 and I don't have a car", is serious. But I have no evidence to suggest she's a troll.

For shame, complaints. We should be a proud race that ignores the trolls! Quite frankly I'm terrified of how much worse this will get when the popular threads widget goes public.

Have you blocked the people most guilty of what you're complaining about, or are they just too coward to post here? :laughing:

Too coward, apparently. I actually have not. Kind of surprising, but I guess since they're troll accounts they don't really check the threads if their name isn't in all caps in the title.

Poor darlings, can't handle any rain on their little parade. :lol: I also find it amusing how this thread isn't very popular; people here don't like criticism unless it's of the nonsensical variety.

The vast majority of the folks here are bitch-made.

Its true that trolls generally gathered here, but there used to be more discussion, because the people that used to be here couldn't be trolled. They fucking knew better, and most of them knew they weren't special because they liked the taste of the same genitals they were born with, or because they can draw a somewhat pretty picture. So what does that leave us with? Actually decent threads, and I'm talking about before that Complaintopia bullshit.

Now its more about attention whoring pity parties than its ever been, and I wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for like the 3 of you assholes that keep making threads here!

I never really fully believed the whole "it used to be better" crap until the thumbwhoring became common place on any and all threads, it really hit home for me. I realize people said the same thing about plz accounts, but those were one thing - glorified emoticons or whatever - this is just blatantly being a whore in an attempt to be "ironic" or whatever the fuck, that isn't ironic at all.

I realize, of course, that shit was shitty well before that... But I was generally optimistic.

I am definitely not saying better. The difference to me between then and now is the difference between a fresh pile of dog shit on the sidewalk on a winter day, and a fresh pile of dog shit on the sidewalk on a summer day. It really comes down to preference.

Personally, I liked old complaints, but that's more because I didn't have my shit together, and I'm an asshole with balls. So it was fun for me. Bitch made, attention whoring internet hipsters? Not so much.

But you don't get it; here in Complaints troll threads are popular because we mock the trolls and totally DESTROY them! They only keep coming back because they're masochists who love being made to cry! And then we spam thumbs of our mediocre art that we think is great, and it's totally not cheap attention-whoring because we're doing IRONICALLY to show disregard for the thread! We're so cool and tough here, yeah! :smoking:

What did I say.
People *say* they dismiss illastrat... but from a trolling point of view he is consistently successful. At least judging from all the anger.
I can't believe (here of all places) people would so easily fall for his bullshit.
I've read through his threads and it's sad to see people getting seriously offended or pissed off.
He makes comically shitty art, and then turns around and makes undirected criticisms of art itself. People get mad. Why? Even if he's serious, I can't find it in myself to take him seriously.
Come on guys. We're better than that. ....Aren't we?

The best response to guys like illastrat is no response. It took me a few threads to learn that though, so unfortunately I did encourage him a bit. I just hope everyone else learns that too. Even responses like "okay" or "no fucks given" are more than enough for him.

I just urge him on like he's actually trolling with trolling ratings
He usually scores around an 8/10 or 5/10.
He's kinda weak.

I'm nostalgia'ing for the old trolls now, or at least some of the regulars which have faded away or been banned. There's always been lazy trolls with, "Durr, digital art sucks and all atheists rape puppies." but people knew better than to feed them. That or ripped them to shreds enough that they pissed off.

I agree with you there. Though, I think the 17 and wants a car girl is actually genuine and has issues with not being allowed to do anything without her parents consent. But yeah, best thing to do is to completely ignore trolls. Not everyone is going to do it though. =S

It's because this place became too accepting. Every random with a handful of post thinks they're a regular. It use to be a weeding process. The other day it almost hit twenty hours since someone posted a thread. The majority are bandwagon and don't know how to make threads, so they don't. All that is left is trolls and the people who think it's funny to copycat them.

In my opinion (though I may be wrong), that started when thread watching was enabled. I mean, people coming here, posting for two days and then becoming regulars.

Maybe I should care more? :saddummy:

Exactly. Some new account can just walk right in and own the joint. It's crazy to me.
Of course there is the handful who do still can't break old habits thank god for them, the minority has became
the majority and now shifted everything.

I don't know, maybe it would help.:C

I remember my first comment/thread I was eaten alive lol. I actually miss those days.
I come in now and then to see how this place runs, and every other comment is someone claiming they own the place or chime in following the trends the actual regulars set. They talk big, then come to find out they have a couple hundred post and they're considered in. Wth happened?:lol:
