Haters Gonna Hate! This is my open letter to the dimwits in cyberland. As one of those who post comments on a lot of boards, I hear that a lot! Its been espscially prevalent since the Logan/Kenseth thing got going and now that KyBu won the Championship, I see a lot of this.
My opinions are just that, Mine. You don’t have to agree, and I often expect most not to agree with me. I actually like that. But, before you say it, state what exactly haters hate!
Why? I try to back up my opinions with facts; statistics and relative information. Me, myself, I won’t say something if I haven’t researched it, at least a little. Does that make me correct? Sometimes, sometimes not. I will admit when I am wrong. I have mis-read the stats. I have taken ositions which, in hind sight, were just wrong. I have even changed my opinion based on someones response to me. That’s really cool, if you ask me!
But I never resorted to “Haters gonna hate”. That’s what you say when your fandom eclipses logic. It’s a cop out! They can’t make an argument in favor of their guy, so to cut the argument short. “Haters gonna Hate, so don’t bother me!”
To you sir, I say, don’t waste my time. Just shut up. If you want to contribute to a discussion, add a real thought. Why do you think I am a hater? Where is my logic wrong? Make an argument. Passion is great, blind passion is foolish.
And it makes you look like like an idiot!
