This thread is for our individual diatribes about we are "sick of" in what we see and hear around us.

Can be Social, Attitudes, Political, Environmental, ...

l'II go first in the next post as a demonstration.

Art Programs.

Especially on TV. They are so pretentious and do not contribute to my education.

Now some elements of art are part of our knowledge base: trompe l'oeil, perspective, Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Durer, origins of Cubism (Annenkov, Picasso), and a few other things.

But mostly, it is overwhelmingly garbage. Not counting its un-lsIamic nature.

Remembering the place where l read this article, making it 25 years ago this year, the article dismissed art as having no real value; the author wrote that what made art "popular" is that no one really has to know a lot and really doesn't have to do anything to stand around and talk about it. Compare that to the minutia needed for managerial skill, not counting engineering and laboratory sciences.

And discussions about 'art' are also either mawkish and maudlin or erotica based. Neither of which are good for anyone's imam.

When was the last time we saw a program on cellular engineering?

l don't know which emoticon  to click. lf l did "Like" then it could be interpreted that l "Like" the underdressed girls.

So, if there were an "AGREE" one, that is what l'd click.

Generally "like" is used as agreement, because internet culture has reduced our dialogue to a set of oversimplified options determined by others. "Like" and "agree" are definitely not the same thing. You chose the only correct option by actually replying with words. 

I bet you can guess what else bugs me: the dumbing down of humanity.

"Oversimplified" ?   Like our user agreements?

Do you use  something mnemonic  as "Like to Agree" ?   er-Yeah, l can struggle along with that.  :grin:

As to this "dumbing down", a theme since the 1960s, is really difficult. Kind of like "simplified Chinese characters". lf l have trouble with the original, then how does a dumb-down help? l have no basis to know what-is-to-be-dumb.

This is like the new phrase l read this morning: Internet Echo Chamber.   How does visual medium have audio characteristics?  Are we supposed to have blind-user support or we don't fit? lt takes time to figure out these lnternet Age  'gems'.

Shias who act very "Western", as in they swear profusely, act really promiscuously, do drugs, etc. It gives us all a bad name. It's not that I'm sick of them, I'm more frustrated with them and feel sad and betrayed that they chose this path. Especially Hijabi Shia girls for some reason I can't articulate without possibly sounding sexist. I don't mean to sound holier-than-thou because I'm for sure not. 

Please don't tell me I'm the only one who feels this way?

I have a long list. 

I am sick of narcissists and their minions. It looks like all the people are part of cults which revolve around narcissists. There are only two types of people left: cult leaders and their followers. I am not a cult leader and my ego is too big to become a cult follower. So I don't fit anywhere. 

I am also sick of hypocrisy, everyone talking about charity, morality and all the moral values. If all the people are trying to become better, world should become a better place. So why is it becoming a worse place and with so much charity, why is zulm increasing, inequality increasing and why are people becoming more and more miserable? 

I am also sick of people talking against feminism and women. All the talk about marriage, marriage is great, so vital for society, and the responsibility of women to have more and more children. We don't have enough resources for the population that's already present on this planet. There are so many orphans and poor people in this world. In the first 30 years of my life, people were always talking about population control. But in the last 5 years, it seems like they literally want women to become baby making machines. 

I am also sick of people who are single, or don't have kids, and they keep telling me to get married or have kids. Hypocrisy at its peak. 

I am sick of people interfering in my life all the time. I don't interfere in other people's lives, so why do other people interfere in my life so much. I don't want to improve myself, I don't want to become your preferred version of human being or muslim, LEAVE ME ALONE. 

Married couples pretending to love each other when they are constantly having affairs. Marriage is a failed institution, married women live such pathetic lives, they become terrible mothers due to abuse by their husbands. Surviving in a marriage is like surviving in a jungle, still everyone talks about how great marriage is and how important it is for children to be brought up with both parents. I keep thinking about if women don't have to put up with all the emotional, physical, and psychological abuse, they would do a much better job at raising their children and those children will become better human beings.

But nevertheless, as a site manager mostly behind the scenes, some things that tick me off:

1. Members quoting long gigantic posts because they are too lazy to tag a member or scroll down to the post box manually. Site staff have to constantly clean this up to make pages readable. The WORST are those who quote a gigantic post en masse to simply give a one sentence/one word reply. My god, just quote the short part of the post you are responding to, or just tag the member! My favorite are those who break up the quoted posts into mini quotes, and respond to each individually. A few do that, but they are a rarity. I give credit to a true veteran like @Akbar673 for being one of the few who has perfectly mastered the art of fragmented quoting. 

2. Members posting topics in clearly the wrong subforum.

3. Members using the “Haha” reaction when something isn’t funny.

4. Members who don’t report inappropriate posts to mods, and instead quote and reply to them in a form of vigilante justice. Just more clean up work for us.

5. Long repetitive debates on the same subjects.

6. Topics that are supposed to be fun or interesting, and always those few who have to ruin it.

7. Interesting topics that get no replies.

8. Topic titles that are all lowercase, or with sloppy spelling or grammar.

9. Topic titles that are ridiculously vague, and tell you nothing about the topic subject. (eg: “A Question”, “Could you Help Me?”, etc, etc)

10. Members with no profile picture. Why? It’s too boring, and makes it harder to find a members posts if they have no identifiable picture that stands out while scrolling...

11. Members who don’t read the site rules.

12. Members being overly dramatic and argumentative.

13. Trolls, trolls, trolls.

And on and on...

1. Of Heartburns whenever I eat sugars. I love sugars you know and not be able to make a meal out of ice cream really makes me sick; Of people who eat sugars and never get fat and then lecture the rest of us on good eating habits.

3. Of people who are unconsiderate, really how long it takes to do a small goodness? Sura Maoon anyone!

4. Of selfish people; Of complainers; Of thankless people; Of feminists; Of anti marja’ Shia; Of people who only talk money money money 

jazkallah kher for the OP.
