Whether first world problems, like the election results, or benign things like the McRib, there is a lot of negative posts.

Why is it, that people have to push negative energy on posts?

It is misaligning my chakras, and makes my aura need cleansing.

Like a bad neighborhood dog that comes and craps on your lawn, it doesn't contribute anything to the thread.

Is it the weather?
Time of year?

I try to make my posts at least somewhat relevant, and not just +1 or I haven't XXXXXX in 20 years, and I can't believe you XXXXX, or something like that.....

It's harshing the Forum's vibe, man.

Agreed.

As an example, one of the unique things that used to routinely occur here were the protection photos (cooking dinner and taking a picture with a gun). However, they have decreased at least an order of magnitude, and I can't help but to attribute to the negative responses.

TR had a great rebuttal to the critics:
quote:
“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

—Theodore Roosevelt

I think it's just current times and I know quite a lot of people that are negative right now.
Everything is expensive, doesn't seem to be much good in the world anymore and just a feeling of blah.
I get it. I still get up every morning but it weighs the day down sometimes.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

A nice example of a straw man argument for my files.
Who said anything suggesting that Pollyanna is more accurate or preferable to negativity?

I always thought the "Whats Your Deal" forum was supposed to be a gripe session. Negative?...If not here, then where?

Um, ….
Take another look at the original post here. It’s not about negativity in this section, it’s about the unrelenting negativity that shows up in every conceivable thread elsewhere.

I think the point is that if you refuse to be negative, that by default makes you a Pollyanna. I think it makes the negative folks feel better about themselves to rationalize their self controlled constant state of misery as them being “enlightened” while those who refuse to act that way are dullards.

When the truth is probably closer to the so called Pollyanna’s are just those who refuse to buy into the MSM narratives, the social media post, and the constant fear campaign that seems to drive the constant negative barrage that defines the downers.

Well, that and they seem to be incapable of being happy, so no one else is allowed to be happy.

The shit has got to stop. Search my posts for the past few days and you tell me.

It's acid, corrosive. It eventually eats into everything unless it's stopped. I'm sick of members telling us about the worst possible scenarios they can imagine, and how this person or that person is going to not only escape justice, but to prosper as well. I'm sick of the idiotic conspiracy horse shit being spread around so carelessly.

I'm not asking for people to ignore our present circumstances and behave as if it's all blue skies and sweet milk. I'm asking for adult men to exhibit restraint while these battles are being fought.

Over and over I have asked this of the members. I have explained my position on this, more than once and no further explanation or asking should be necessary.

Thank you. We are in a good position to stop any new crazy legislation and undo a good part of the past damage.

Some are just unhappy in their own personal life and you know the saying right? Misery loves company. To these few the sky is falling and they want others to join in. I refuse. I will still cuss, call a spade a spade but I do honestly try to pull back and keep my straight up bitching to this section of the forum which I do use on occasion, profusely. Foreigners flooding into my area, the traffic, the Kalifornian invasion and such. I’m living in hell. But I’m not going to turn this forum into it for fuksakes.

I voted, exercising my American civic duty and that’s all I can do. Fuck that election. What is done is done and there is nothing I can do about it. No bitching, pissing, and moaning is going to do anything about it. Life goes on. I remember what a friend told me about his AA journey. He said they teach control what you can control, and the rest of the shit, just let it go. I’ll be the first to admit that the general shift of everything to certain age groups drives me nuts. The behavior of drivers, consumers at the grocery store, and the idiots at the gym, oh my.

It’s just time to harden the fuck up. Watch Chopper. He’ll remind your ass.

But it is a tiny irony that the gripe about negativity is itself negative.
