This thread does not, by any means, suggest that nothing of interest goes on in vent. Like I mentioned before, it is mainly for "capturing" the absurd. If users want to marginalize vent users and view it as consisting of nothing other than shit, they are gaining that impression based on little fact and incorrectly on their own. If they want to jump to conclusion, that is no one's responsibility, but theirs. Users inability to see past a silly thread and what is said on here does not justify having to "take effort" as a collective and stay away from playfully mocking random occurrences on vent, especially in a thread specified for it. A lot of threads on here serve no constructive purpose, I don't see how this specific one should be crucified because the readers might jump to conclusions, assume that vent is nothing but shit, and not join.
Yes, there is random trolling from time to time, but there is a lot of constructive and interesting conversation that goes on as well.
I've seen it happen multiple times, people making snide remarks about Vent/Users, but I can only roll my eyes; speaking with convictions without first hand experience isn't exactly what would drive me to take someone seriously, let alone go out of my way to give them an impression that will tempt them into joining vent. I've stated it before, and I'll state it again. Vent has inspired plenty of constructive and thoughtful threads, Users keep coming back on for a reason, even if at times it is not providing any insightful information, they come back for the friends they've made; if someone wants to take this thread seriously, and make false accusation based on an incredibly silly thread, then they're incredibly silly themselves and can not be taken seriously.
I pretty much agree with @erm.
