The Idiot Convention
Rediff attracts more idiots than any other website on the planet. The idiocy is pervasive and not just limited to the writers of rediff. On one hand, Raja Sen gets the bile faster out through your mouth than any other writer in the world. On the other hand, the jobless people who comment on rediff article are the ones who leave me totally dehydrated. Have you ever wondered how retarded somebody should be to leave comments on the rediff articles that are published today?
Take this article for instance. Just read and be amazed by the idiocy of the commentors at the bottom of the article Vadivelu Subramanian, Rachna, Sridhar Rout, and Satyasundar Nayak. Rachna thinks she is communicating with the judge itself. The stupidity of her comment is rivalled only by the puke worthiness of Satyasundar's comment.
I have never understood rediff's solicitation of opinions and public debate on a variety of topics. What is the point of it? Why is it less futile than one of those stupid online petitions? It has got one thing right though - it has correctly estimated the number of stupids who browse the internet. They unfailingly attract all members of this category - right down until the last stupid. Agreed 4-5 years ago the cricket discussions were interesting and it was a pleasure to participate. But now it reeks of dullness. Merely browsing the web page where the public leave comments on rediff articles or rediff created discussion forums can leave your brain numb for 3 weeks.
