We round up some of our favorite comments of the week.
We all know the troll situation on this site can be tenuous, at any given moment we're bound to experience a troll attack, with an onslaught of comments, either spam-like or else simply based on false opinions, all created to inflame the comment section. We love our active commenters, but it's become a balancing act in order to appease those who are serious about what they're saying in our infamous c-section and those whose sole purpose is to instigate and bully. Our annual troll awards were shelved this year, but that doesn't mean we haven't been paying attention to what you guys have been saying. With a New Year, we're looking to empower our commenters while hopefully discouraging an overload of trolling (but, a little bit of trolling never hurt anyone amirite amirite?). That being said, we're scouring articles daily to unearth some hidden gems (and every now and then, a not-so-hidden top comment).
Take a look below at this past week's picks, and stay tuned for this article to surface weekly.
User: T-Raww I'm steppin out!
This comment made me laugh out loud, for some reason, just because of that typo. Nonetheless it's 100% true, and I still have DS2 in "rotarion" as well.
This one steps things up from lol-worthy to lmao-worthy. Not sure if bro is aware of how certifications work. It's just a weird statement to make, "IMO," as someone pointed out in reply as well (below).
Okay so what happened here was, initially we titled this piece Every J. Cole Release To Go Gold Or Platinum-- but then ol' Lxther here was so bold as to claim that our title was misleading. I'm not stranger to the internet-- I've actually been on the internet once or twice in my life, and yes, there's thing going on called click-bait, which often involves misleading titles. However, this was just not one such case. It was literally a list of every release from J. Cole that went gold or platinum. That being said, our title seemed extremely straightforward and direct, the opposite of misleading, at least, to us. In the end, it was all semantics, as Rick Sanchez hopped in to clarify where the misunderstanding was coming from. Why in the world would we be claiming every single release from J. Cole, ever, is going to go gold OR platinum???

This is the photo in question everyone was hating on. No matter how sus it is, this is probably true.
"Breathtaking" is a hilarious way to describe Thugger, as is "unpredictable legend" -- these are somehow accurate yet hyperbolic descriptions of Young Thug. It makes no sense, but it does. That about sums up Thug.
This one is here for the sake of debate.
User: HNHH with the L
We will hand that L right back to you this time, sir.
Thinking face emojis all around.
Alright, this particular comment is actually more about the replies than the comment itself. Lol @ Kobe for guessing his age, and Lol @ Kyle Korver With The Shot for calling out the questionable (my biased opinion) inclusion of Rick Ross (Future's OK though).
These feel like conflicting statements. I'm not sure how to take this comment. Boring, typically, is not a good thing.
CONNOR GOT NO HEART.
User: rubiks cube
Another for-some-reason-it's-hilarious comment (but also I agree, hell nah, to the nah nah nah), but also, for some reason the fact that his user profile is "rubiks cube" is equally funny. Sometimes funny shit just can't be explained.
