"What is food to one man may be fierce poison to others."
"I've never really understood the almost crusader-like fervor that consoles attract. Most people would say it's because your mum is only prepared to buy you one console, and if it turns out you didn't pick the winner, the best thing to do is go into denial until the very fabric of reality spontaneously changes, because God knows that's more likely to happen than you admitting fault."

"Now I have stuck up for [Michael] Cimino in the past going so far as to defend Heaven's Gate and say it is a very good effort. My generosity has come to an end. IÖf*ckingÖHATE The Sunchaser!!! Hate is too soft a word but it is what I will go with for the moment. My hate might even transcend the film itself to people that would have balls enough to admit they like it. Iím not sure."
"Family Circus has been shitting in the mouth of comedy for 51 years and we need to fight back... Can you imagine what it would be like if you found something like this funny? You'd be both the happiest and most-punched person in the world, and I am really glad you don't exist. But in case you do, seriously: Fuck you."
"I love the smell of burning gamers in the morning."

"Those who think Transformers is a great or even a good film are, may I tactfully suggest, not sufficiently evolved."
"Any human dumb enough to voluntarily sit through a second helping of that unremitting fecal spew really ought to just get up and leave the planet via the nearest window before their continued presence does lasting damage to the gene pool."
"Maybe youíre one of those people who spend more man-hours proudly telling everyone whoíll listen about how youíve never watched Big Brother than the people involved in making it spent, well, making it. Perhaps you wear your BB-hatred like a badge of honour, joining every ďI hate BB!Ē Facebook group you can find and letting everyone know youíve got better things to do with your time, well whoopee-balls for you. Maybe I donít like your face, but I donít keep harping on about it. (I donít like your face, as it happens. Itís too wide at the top and youíve got a stupid chin)"
"We live in quite an interesting age. You can tell someone's sexual orientation and level of education from just their interests."

"I like your game. I don't like your gamers."
— A variation on a famous Gandhi quote.
"'I don't know much about art,' you aver, 'but I know what I like.' Actually you don't. You have been browbeaten into feigning pleasure at the sight of so-called art that actually makes your skin crawl, and you are afraid to admit it for fear of seeming dull. This has gone on for so long that you have forgotten your own mind. Do not fear: in a few minutes' reading I can break the spell and liberate you from this unseemly condition. [...] There are, of course, people who truly appreciate abstract art. You aren't one of them; you are a decent, sensible sort of person without a chip on your shoulder against the world."
— David P. Goldman, Admit it - you really hate modern art
I know the purists who think any US adaptation is crap and wonít let themselves like it no matter what, and Iíll be the first to tell them not to waste their time watching the show. Itís not for them. I would actually prefer that they donít watch it and not post negative messages in the fan forums about it. I never understood that concept. There are shows I am a fan of but donít watch because I didnít like what they are doing with it. And Iím talking original Japanese Toku shows. But I donít go on forums to trash it. I think thatís really lame. As is criticizing a show for 6-11 year old kids and you are in your 20ís or older. Honestly, Iím speechless! I stay away from Teletubbie and Barney forums!

"[adult swim] is kind of like 4chan. In the beginning they were both small corners of the world where American anime fans could congregate. Then a bunch of anime-haters hop on board and complain about the content that started it all."

"No, [A.N.T. Farm] is not the best show on Disney Channel. Even if it was that wouldn't say much about DC since the quality of all their shows has tanked since the end of Wizards of Waverly Place. It's fools like the the [sic] OP and the second poster who actually think this show is funny. And it's not adults or so called "haters", idiot. It's just people with common sense and good taste in humor that know this show is far from funny. ANT Farm is crap."
"...I don't like Yahtzee or Noah Antwiler because I don't like reviews where the reviewer puts more time reviewing the FANS over the WORK they claim to be reviewing. When you start insulting the perceived target demographic rather than start actually reviewing the damn work, which is why I clicked that link in the first place, then my cursor quickly goes to the 'back' button because it's amazing how many reviews just turn into ualuealuealeuale."

"People like you are the reason why Final Fantasy VII has gotten so much hate recently. They don't call it the most overrated game of all time for nothing. So you think you're part of a majority, huh? More like minority, douche."
— YouTube video comment responding to a comment defending FF7 from a negative review. (However the defending comment stated that the writer simply disagrees with the review, suggesting that the writer of the above quote was over-reacting.)
"Twitards are the most delusional, psychotic, braindead cultural pollutants since video game fanboys and need to be purged from their shitty cults. Grab your shotguns everyone who hates Twilight! It's hunting season!"
