Maybe it's just me. Maybe it's just a pet peeve of mine. But increasingly I see the statement, I hate (insert movie, book, etc.), but I haven't seen, read, heard it. You're wasting perfectly good hate on something you've never experienced?
Worse than "I hate it" is "it sucks...I just know it does." You don't know shit. You may suspect it sucks, but you don't know diddly.
I have no problem with "it's not something that interests me." I'm even ok with "it doesn't look good." No problem. We all have limited time and certainly can't be expected to read every book, see every movie, listen to every album. I make choices based on what I can expect to like or dislike.
What I don't do is Hate for no reason or decide something "sucks" when I have no basis to do so.
Maybe this all comes back to the phenomenon of the worth of opinions. At some point in the recent past it seems to have become standard to say that all opinions are valid.
Hogwash! You certainly have a right to your opinion (at least in this country). However, that doesn't mean that your opinion is valid. Opinions based on nothing are useless and should be given no credence.
Maybe I shouldn't expect people to think logically. Or even to think at all before they speak or write. But I keep hoping.
End of rant...
