What's with all the snobbery and snide comments?

Been on HUKD almost daily since Chrimbo looking for some bargains (aint we all?) and I can't help noticing all the really snidey and elitist comments posted on threads.

Either they are unaffected by the economic depression or are just pretending they are minted, but do they really need to be so obnoxious on a site dedicated to saving people money? Why do they insist on showcasing their wealth?

This site would be nothing were it not for those who take the time (& flak) to post deals and is it too hard to show some appreciation or at least be polite?

Fella in my observation society as a whole is like that aswell, snide, selfish, backstabbing, soulless fake people everywhere making up the masses thats why this country is f"""""d on many levels.

some people on here can be nasty and say they have everything whether they have or havent oh well dont let it bother you.

hiya


have to say some people on here are nasty just for the sake of it, and because they can get away with it. Some people are friendly, probably most of them but there are a few people on here who obviously get a kick out of being nasty. There is no need for it and i hope something is introduced to deal with it as it must make people think twice about posting.

Saying that, some of the FS/FT posts (when submitted) are so rude and even if i wanted the item i would not deal with someone so rude.

my tuppence worth!

:) Best of luck to you if you can afford the better things in life. Chances are you have either worked hard to get them or at least your parents have. But it i sthe people on here that belittle good deals because they wouldn't lower their standards.

Not everyone can afford 62" Sony LEDs so maybe saving £60 on a non-branded one is a Godsend. Sure, if you serious misgivings or bad experiences with these products then please by all accounts share them but try at least to be constructive

Are you implying that it is funny to be rude and obnoxious? I can understand that the internet gives many the opportunity to live out fantasys or act how they wish they were perceived, including being more aggressive or dominant than they are in reality but we are a sort of community on here. Do we really need it?

It has nothing to do with how much money they have. It's also not a HUKD thing. It is, unfortunately, an internet thing. In a similar way that drivers are often more aggressive than normal when in their car because they feel protected by that metal box, people are often put down others on the internet because of the protection that anonymity offers. They do it for a variety of reasons, but ironically will very rarely tell the whole truth when talking about their own situation.

It depends on how far you want to look into it. Some people are going to be asses wherever you go, be it in the real world on the world wide web.

The comments come part and parcel of the internet, and particularly as forums evolve they'll likely become greater.

Wasn't quite the inspiration but one of them. I know it is a losing battle and we should just ignore them but it makes my blood boil. And I know a lot of them are just kids talking themselves up but it is really pathetic.

Rant Over. Thanks for everyone's input.:thumbsup:
