you were not attempting to "openly discuss." You didn't say, "The State was a big hit with a lot of people, but I prefer Mr. Show. Your thoughts?" That would have been a precursor to a good discussion, because both shows had merit and a fervent fan base.
No, instead you came on and said (reading between the lines) that The State wasn't a very good show, and that anyone who likes it is less than discerning. Of course, you'll use the pu$$y response of, "That's not what I said!" but it IS what you implied, and if you didn't already know that, you're way stupider than I would have guessed. Your appreciation for Mr. Show tells me that you're not that big of an idiot.
This p!ssing contest won't go anywhere, so I'll make the obvious point that I was not telling anyone that they can't disagree with what makes good comedy and what makes bad comedy. Yet another pu$$y response = you playing yourself off as a poor picked-on victim....boo hoo hoo....they're not reacting the way I think they should! My civil rights are being violated! Help, help...I'm being repressed!
You were acting like a f&#kin DICK, and you know it. Just admit it. You came along to needle people who, while not affecing you in the SLIGHTEST way, like a show you don't like. It's that simple. Your intent was NOT to spur a discussion. You wanna know what you sounded like? Imagine there was a flyingmnky Family Reunion message board, and I came on & posted, "Flyingmnky's mother is a whore, and anyone who thinks she isn't is just stupid."
That's how you sounded. Quit acting like a victim. Act like the mature & intelligent person a fan of an excellent show like Mr. Show OUGHT to be. And don't bother trolling me again for a response -- you're the interloper here, not me. You're on Ignore now, kitten.
I had the long retort all ready to post then I deleted when I realized you're totally missing the point(s), mainly because you're doing the very thing you're accusing me of...
And I quote: "I'll make the obvious point that I was not telling anyone that they can't disagree with what makes good comedy and what makes bad comedy"
And this is after you wrote "Of course, you'll use the pu$$y response of, "That's not what I said!"
Wow. Hypocrite much?
But you know what, I admit I was a little frustrated at all the praise The State was receiving (and had been since it's inception), and posted that not so much looking for a stimulating discussion but to get it off my chest and air my grievances so to speak. Did I do it to intentionally be a dick/troll? Not so much. But it just seemed like the appropriate place to speak my mind about the show. It was a differing opinion from the majority, that's all.
And did I expect to welcomed with open arms? Eh, not so much. I expected people to leap to the shows defense. But did I sit back wringing my hands thinking "There! That oughta get 'em! MuhHAHAHAHA!" Nope. I have mostly replied to those that have erroneously painted me as an SNL fan or misquoted what I said.
Whatever dude. You've already jumped to the wrong conclusion and made up your mind about me. So be it. No reason to let some irrational person sitting in his momma's basement and their erroneous opinion about me ruin my day.
