God damn I hate the internet sometimes. I’m looking at the comments thread on someone’s blog. The first poster says something short and banal. The second poster disagrees with this banal comment and says that the first poster only posted what they did so they could be the first poster. The third poster picks on some utterly minor grammatical error in the second poster’s post.

Is this… really what life is all about? Why must every three comments on the internet be a three-way flame war? Why can’t people just… let things pass? What’s so great about being the first poster anyway? Why must every minor grammatical inconsistency be commented on? Why don’t people just shut up and get lost?
