Facebook cliches/memes

I really like "xxxxx have let themselves go". If you choose the right band and post it under all the 'looking good!'-type comments for a picture, that one always gets me chuckling.

I like Yomps "turd" comments.

It's that thing of all this effusive praise and then just a blunt one word response that somehow punctures the whole previous "debate". That sorta thing, if done well, always makes me smile

It's funny how you get these Facebook groups who only talk positively about an artist's work.

I'm in a Lou Reed/VU group and they post all sorts of shite, different albums, songs, pictures, they're all over it. 'yeh this one's a beauty' etc, a huge list of similar comments. It never fails to give me a wee kick to post 'this is absolute fucking cobblers' or something similar.

I was a member of the My Morning Jacket board years and years ago. Similar thing. Endless praise, unbelievably polite conversation, all this "well it's not rubbish, it's all subjective after all" shite.

I was banned within a month

On a slightly different note, just seeing the words 'The Mind Unleashed' is enough to make my arse squirt. And at the weekend I saw an inspirational quote that had been made out of something Lena Dunham said. Armageddon can speed on.

I made a comment in the Facebook Now Playing thread where I didn't think an album some woman posted was that great - a mildly humorous comment I'd post on here - and some folks were insulted that I shouldn't be doing that.

Sometimes I unfollow folks I know who are relentlessly positive. Even when they post about something bad, they'll comment about "just another one of life's challenges."

I follow Mindy Kaling on Twitter and she had a funny comment today that as she gets older, the most positive feeling she gets when something doesn't go wrong is relief.

Inspirational memes, passive-aggressive whingeing, and social justice warrior stuff all make my cursor hover over the block or unfriend buttons.

How far is one allowed to care about stuff before they become a "social justice warrior"?

My short, flippant answer would be: up to the point where one begins behaving like a prick.

My serious answer would be that I don't think the sort of thing I meant has much to do with genuinely caring. I'm not referring to activists per se. Proper SJW nonsense, you know it when you see it.
