I had my own little prediction about what would happen in the recent split: I expected the HATE thread would start off with a surge and burn out early, while the LOVE thread would end up with the most comments by endurance. Boy, was I wrong. The two threads were neck-and-neck in commenting frequency through most of their lifespans, until last night when the LOVE thread petered out while the HATE thread got all fired up. Final scores: HATE, 702 comments; LOVE, 434 comments.
It just goes to show that if love and hate go to war, hate will kick love’s butt.
But still, we need to bring everyone back together, because I’m not going to maintain two everlasting threads all the time. Group hug, everyone! Lovers and haters all together now! We need ’em both, lovers to bring the lube and haters to bring the spice.
