Why must p.ie threads be essentially negative?

At a quick count seventeen of the high-lighted bold threads, presently on view, on the main menu are sniping, or sneering (usually from a right-wing position), or simply negative.

Why is this?

Because the majority of people who post here have appalling chips on their shoulder and feel that an often amorphous "other" is responsible for their personal problems.
It is a valuable site for nutty people to vent that occasionally hosts a decent level of debate.

18. Can't see any highlights yet though.

The normal narrative arc is that someone comes in bit whiney and then he or she is told why it 's really not anything to worry about, and they should consider perhaps having a nice cup of tea instead, and then his enablers pile in to say there is indeed something terrible to worry about.

It's because Jesus died on the cross. Or something.

So you start a thread whining about the proliferation of whiney threads?

I need to lie down.

You're free to start some positive, chirpy threads if you want. It might catch on.;)

ehh, cos they are watching liberal fascism at work on a daily basis in their lives and if you are following the complete change in voting patterns across the Western world you will notice Joe Soap is kinda getting fed up with liberal spoofers in the media and politicians in their ivory towers lecturing the ordinary people that multiculture is great, immigration from unskilled 3rd worlders is great, gender issues are a human right to use what ever toilet you feel you need to use ? and anyone from a working class town that says it ain't is a waycist or a homophobe etc, hint !!!, they never were and are really getting tired of the liberal millionaire cry/bullies like O Gorman and Obama that are really morons that sell guilt and use it to enrich themselves.

Trump is the protest vote against the PC madness and elite politicians, of course he is a clown , but Obama played the holy Joe Christian to get in and in that time forced in SSM, is now telling Joe Soap that strange men can be p1ssing in the same toilet as his wife is and backed the abortion (human abattoir) business to the hilt. Has played more golf than any other president and would not be considered Christian by any stretch of the imagination, hmmm, more ambition than ability, like most politicians. He was a fraud from the start.

This is the time for ,"We ain't got to listen to these fooking clowns anymore and we ain't falling for that bullsh1t anymore", sure look at our own eejit in the Aras,

Always has bookcases behind him during interviews (displaying utter contempt for the viewers that he is associated with intelligence or learning when all he has is a mickey mouse degree and keeps mentioning the intelligent people in his speeches about himself when he is a fooking eejit)

Fudged the abortion question on Pat Kenny 3 times and that is not leadership, it is spoofing,

Only got in because the RTE gang stitched up Gallagher with fake SF twitter accounts during the debate

Only ways into "topical" debate on the liberal side, despite being fully aware that he must be impartial and represent ALL the people ,

Takes home 200k a year despite calling himself a "socialist"

His Daughter is in the Seanad ? Funny that ?

The protest vote is not limited to Joe Soap protesting against the hard right, it is also available to protest against the hard left and we have had too much of that brand of sh1te lately.

Why don't papers report good news?

Because it's generally not newsworthy if someone isn't murdered or if a house doesn't burn down...

In fairness non murders and house burnings are nootoriosly difficult to capture at the right moment.

Good news is all over the place but again it might take a sensitive journalist to bring it to the fore.

'What happened with that arrest out in Cabra, i told you to have a look at?'

'Well I waited for ages, but get this right, while I was there there was this little girl who lost her dog, but eventually it..like showed up'
