And, honestly, if you stay out of the comments Fark ain't so bad. Sometimes you feel like a post telling you how much you suck because of what it says on your passport, or because of your favorite porn-box making company, or because of your choice in portable telephonic devices, or maybe you want to circumcize your cat, or that you're not helping to save the world because you posted a YouTube clip. Of course, some days all you have time for is a +1 headline. And I've seen some of your usernames whilst quick-scrolling through the comments for amusing images at Fark, so I know you're there too.
