Amusing if amateur
Doesn’t anyone listen? We’ve already gone over the fine points that distinguish real hate from plain ol’ whining.
Landing squarely within the second category, the insipid caviling found on this upstart website. Claiming to be the latest in a long and respected line of public shaming vehicles (from Puritan pillories to Hollywood studio PR execs), the Thriillist.com Violation Report brings “disgrace mongering to the everyman,” urging users to submit phone photos of routine offenders whose individual behaviors might be considered rude. Whatever.
We’ll assume their hearts are in the right place…and move on.
