Humor Since I think we haven't been having enough fun lately on OSNews, I decided it's time we do something fun for a change. We all have our little pet annoyances when it comes to other people's comments. Fixed expressions or comment styles that annoy the living daylights out of you. Here are mine.

Thom, you are really driving this site into the ground.

Eugenia, where are you? Give me back my OSNews!

This is a constructive and helpful comment. It is very on-topic. Well done.

Thom, you are really driving this site into the ground. Eugenia, where are you?

IIRC, Eugenia said she left because she was sick of us all.

What's the point of being so damn negative toward Thom? If you don't like the site, go away, don't read it.

Eugenia walked away from it due to all the crap she had to put up with, pretty soon if people don't offer constructive critism, instead of insults, then the maybe they'll say screw it, and then we'll have to put up with slashdot and digg.

They do it for free, the least you can do is try to show a little support, instead of acting like a d*ck.

Here, here, I agree. Just basic manners would help so many. BTW, I'm not sure I would call him a duck, though.

I have been reading, and think I have maybe 3-4 comments on OSNews, since it's inception.

Perhaps I was in a grouchy mood when I made that comment, but I'm entitled to my opinion. The site just isn't what it used to be. I am not out of line lamenting that fact, because it's been a daily stop for me for over a decade and has always been one of my favorite web sites.

Could I have been more tactful in stating my concerns? Of course.

There's also nothing wrong with just coming out and saying what you think, provided it doesn't do anyone any real harm.
