** The launch of "Not Always Healthy" in particular has gotten a lot of this. In most stories on the other sites you have a Jerkass or an idiot sure... but seeing these same type of people in medical situations verges disturbingly close on LethalStupidity, with a lot of posters who were treated wrong by their medical staff having afflictions that could cripple or even kill them coldly dismissed as something minor or overreacted to.

* DesignatedVillain: The two teenage girls in [[https://notalwaysright.com/a-total-balls-up/98128/ this story]]. It's their first time going to a baseball game and they actually manage to catch a baseball that's hit into their section. Not long after they catch it, though, a couple of kids run down to them from several rows back and ask them for the baseball. The two girls are understandably reluctant to do so, since they caught the ball fair and square at their first baseball game ever. Their entire section then turns on them and yells at them to give up the ball to the kids, one woman even calling them "b***es" for not doing so. Eventually, a man behind them outright ''snatches'' the ball from the two girls and gives it to the two kids, who run back to their mother, who gives a smug look to the two teenagers. The patrons even basically run the two girls out of their section as the manager has to move them out of it because the patrons were still giving the girls a hard time over this. While the manager at the ballpark does get the two girls replacement baseballs and vouchers for free hot dogs afterward, it's hard not to sympathize with the two teenagers thanks to the actions of their fellow patrons souring their first baseball game experience, all while considering them the bad guys for not wanting to give up the baseball they caught at their first game ever.

* IdiotPlot: [[https://notalwaysworking.com/real-tv-bad-guy/45552 This story.]] The manager could have been more understanding, but it took a long series of abysmally bad decisions on OP's part to get into this situation in the first place.

** Similarly, as pointed out by many commenters, [[https://notalwaysright.com/clients-ice-cold/100213/ this story]] only happened because the OP is enough of a doormat/workoholic to take calls for work while legally off the clock for lunch.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: This is the reaction many commenters have to some of the changes made to the sites over the years, such as allowing prose stories (instead of the previous insistence that stories be presented in script format) and the posting of videos, some of which don't seem to have much to do with the site's premise at all.

** The complete overhaul of the site to put every subsection under the same domain not only rendered the old Facebook comments lost forever in favor of Disqus(which came with more draconian censorship--even comments with [[ScunthorpeProblem "He'll"]] are flagged), but also resulted in the breaking of not only links within the site to other stories(such as a part X story containing links to previous parts), but also image posts(consequently rendered blank), neither of which have been fully remedied as of November 2017, several months after the change.
