    What's up with just a little criticism?

    When people give me criticisms, others tell me to accept them and put them into account. However, it doesn't seem to work the other way around.

    It seems that every time I make a comment on someone's article that's a criticism of some kind, somebody always responds with either: "Ignore Dalmatianlover. Something, something, something..." or "Dalmatianlover, something, something, something..." or "Fuck off, Dalmatianlover!"

    Why is it okay for everyone else to criticise my articles, but it's not alright for me to criticise your's? Even if I make something that's 1% criticism and come back with a nice comment, I get "Fuck off, Dalmatianlover!"

    A lot of these jerks who are telling me to fuck off or say that I'm an asshole haven't even done anything to contribute, so what gives them the right to be assholes with me all the time?

      I can't speak for all of your comments, but I do recall at least one instance of something completely ridiculous you said, which was something like "I can't believe you said ! I'm giving you a thumbs down for that!" Maybe you're usually better than that, but you can't just dislike an article for one or two sentences that might be false.

        Criticism is fine, but sometimes, you say things like this, a comment you left in the article "The Gotham Cityscape":

        Another one of these? God! I swear if I see one more article about Batman, The Terminator, Star Wars or Skeletor, I am going to give it an automatic thumbs down without even reading it!

        -----------

        Sometimes, you give off the impression that you're not paying attention to the content, but instead just seeing a certain word or text description, and giving it a thumbs-down on that front, sort of like how you show no mercy with articles about retro crushes. You never give any of those pieces a chance. All of these articles on this site are about what the writers have a passion for, and with all your references to "101 Dalmatians", you should understand what it's like to be passionate about something.


        I sometimes wonder if you even bother to read the articles all the way through.

          Because when you give "critiscm", you don't give critiscm, you just be a bad dawg. Let us journey down the path of your article comments and see your greatest hits.


          NOW That's what I call DalmatianLover: Volume I


          In this amazing collection, you'll recieve classics like...


          This article has already been done. That one was way better than this one though, because in this one, you've got all the segments completely out of order. Thumbs down.

          Okay, so because the article writer rearranged the segments, you're giving him a Thumbs Down? That's like dismissing a game just because Jason Griffith is the voice of the main character. Notice how you also said "The other one was better?" Way to discourage the fledgling article writer.

          How come when I make a Top 10 SNES games article, everyone hates it, but this one, everyone loves? Well, that's far from a problem.

          I have two problems with this list:
          1. The games are not numbered.
          and
          2. There are too many games from the same franchises. There's like three Mario games, two Pac Man games, and two "Attack" games.

          That's just my criticism. It's an ok article, but I'm giving it a thumbs down because it can use some improvement.


          With this one, we can tell you were jealous of GuineaPig. Sure, he wrote an average-at-best article on his ten favorite SNES games, but what made him stand out from yours was that he actually called it a top ten list rather than his "memories." Your list was called "My SNES Memories", but you didn't state any memories, you just... did your usual picture-then-brief-synopsis-rinse-lather-repeat writing. =/ Plus, he didn't say anything like "If one of your favorites didn't make my list, then don't be a crybaby!"

          Another one of these? God! I swear if I see one more article about Batman, The Terminator, Star Wars or Skeletor, I am going to give it an automatic thumbs down without even reading it!

          Yeah, Caps already mentioned it, but still, that's just damn rude. How would you like it if someone gave you a thumbs down for constantly referencing 101 Dalmatians or the Angry Video Game Nerd/Nostalgic Critic? Oh wait... they already do, but it doesn't feel so good, does it? You give an article a thumbs down, no matter how good it is, just because of the subject. Whyyyy?

          Another Terminator article? Sheesh, man! This is like the seventh Terminator article we've had!

          Does it matter? Maybe the article writer didn't know that. Besides, seven Terminator articles sounds like a shorter number than the number of Nickelodeon articles.

          Contra is NOT a beat 'em up game! I'm giving you a thumbs down for your lack of research.

          If you've actually taken the time to read the article rather than just look at the pictures then automatically determine his score, you would know that he was simply talking about the different ways of kicking ass and how guys with weapons have a better advantage. He wasn't saying that Contra was a beat-'em-up at all. Plus, even if he WAS wrong, you gave him a thumbs down just for that? Boo.

          Speaking of looking at pictures then scrolling down to the comments section...

          But wait, there's more!
          Call in the next ten minutes and receive "Captain Obvious" moments, which include...


          "Oh, the classics!"
          "The black and white really makes this article feel like a flashback!"
          "Gargoyles was the Batman: TAS of the Disney Afternoon shows."
          "There's only one thing that makes the A-Team cool, and that's Mr. T!"


          ... and many more!


          Yeah.

            Thanks. Well, you can tell I smacked some sense into him because his latest article (from Final Fight and Felix the Cat) comment is this:

            "This was quite interesting. An article that talks about two completely different games which have absolutely nothing in common. I also loved the Felix the Cat game, but I wish you put in some pictures from the game in here."

            He actually makes a comment that isn't stating the obvious or being a prick. Looks like I've done it.

                    Oh yeah, he does have some good articles all right.

                        Indeed he did. Too bad he probably won't respond back, and if he did, he would likely be butthurt, in denial, and plain ignoring everything I've said.

                          I've been meaning to respond to this for a long time, now I finally found out that I've gotten a lot of feedback here.

                          Now, what's this kind of stuff I'm hearing: "I wonder if you actually take the time to read someone's article." I wonder the same thing. I wonder why people give articles an automatic thumbs down just because it's a Top 10 list or someone's referencing the AVGN or the Nostalgia Critic or someone like that.

                          It seems that comment I made has become popular to a lot of you saying: "If I see one more article on here about Batman, the Terminator, Star Wars or Skeletor, I'm going to give it an automatic thumbs down without even reading it!" Okay, so you found that offensive, but you didn't find THIS offensive? "If you mention the AVGN or Screwattack in one more article of your's, I'm going to give it an automatic thumbs down without even reading it!" This quote was said by NostalgicJester in one of my earlier articles, yet he also told me he'd bash me for mentioning the Nostalgia Critic, even though he didn't mention him in that comment at all. Well, you know what? What can I say? I'm sick of those topics because they're common topics on here. You guys probably have no idea how sick I am of the whole world talking about "The Dark Knight"!

                          I'm also concerned about the articles of mine that got sent to the back page for ridiculous reasons, such as everyone disagreeing with my opinions. Take a look at the other articles that got sent back there! Articles that are too short, contain a lack of detail, no pictures, material that make it not even qualify as an article. Those deserve to be banished to obscurity, not well-written articles with opinions that people disagree with!

                          Oh, and I think there's something I don't think anyone pointed out yet, is how even if I try to be nice, I still get back talk. Here's an example of a comment I left on the article, "That Piece of Junk?" written by vkimo:
                          I'm really getting tired of Star Wars articles, but thumbs up anyway. I really like how you set up the article, plus it was very well-written.
                          And now, here's a response to that comment made by naruto_fanatic:
                          in my words fuck off asslover, this thing rocks.
                          What? He thought I was being a 100% total asshole in every word I said? And that's a lot coming from someone who hasn't made any contributions to the site whatsoever. I can clearly tell, because it says so on his profile. He even left a message on his profile threatening to ban people. How can someone be a moderator while not submitting anything to contribute even?

                          If I give articles a thumbs down, then I usually don't leave any comments unless I find something that's an absolute and total disgrace. Like, here's a comment I left on an article called "Why I Love Sonic":
                          You apparantley have played the Sonic games way out of order. And wait, what's this you said about Sonic 3? "It was the first game I played where you get to play as Sonic's best friend, Tails." WRONG! Tails made his debut on Sonic 2! Come on, man! Everyone knows that! And you've never owned a Sega Genesis until 1998? That's sad, man. That system was long dead by then. I find it disturbing that you enjoyed a lot of Sonic games that were really bad. Not to mention this article is loaded with a lot of spelling and gramatical errors. THUMBS DOWN.
                          Looking back at it, I noticed that I misread something, so I take back some of the things I said there.

                          Overall, I find it very unfair that you're giving back talk to comments like these:
                          I'm really getting tired of Star Wars articles, but thumbs up anyway. I really like how you set up the article, plus it was very well-written.
                          but not to comments like these?:
                          What a fucking shitty ass show. Disney's best TV cartoons would be DuckTales, Gummi Bears, TaleSpin, Darkwing Duck and Rescue Rangers. This show was just shit, the movie was better.
                          That comment was left by grindcorefan on TreyVore's article: "Great Shows: 101 Dalmatians". So you guys are going to let comments like that slide, yet you're going to get on me for making comments that are nowhere near as mean as that?

                          Well?

                            Yeah, I find it amusing he sets up these threads which make him pretty much a bullseye for negative comments and truths about his behavior on the site. It just goes to show you how much he wants attention on this site and people talking about him. His psyche doesn't care if that attention is good or bad as long as he gets it.

                            Of course, are we any better? We spend a ton of time giving him exactly what he wants by putting together extensive comments, clever though they may be, on his actions on this site and we take some kind of twisted pleasure in it. I guess there's just something about beating on a dumb dog many of us find appealing. Just remember, no matter how much you beat on a dumb dog, it's still going to be dunb afterwards. Next time, probably the best thing for us to do would be to ignore his whinny threads. That would be the most effective way to stop them.

                              All this over an article on a cut-rate retro site. And you're not even gettin' paid for it.

                              Hil-ar-i-ous.

                                    I remember a comment you made on my article which came off as rather wise-ass rather than really a comment. But even so there's not really anything wrong with that. Sometimes it's good to be a little bit razor-sharp you know? Keeps the people on their feet to strive towards perfection (or at least a better article).
