    While there's good folks who frequent it, the overwhelming group attitude is "if it's not something I personally own, it's total trash and you should be ashamed of even posting here."

    Imagine being so disappointed with where your life has brought you.

    That's kind of hilarious.

    In the end, it all ends up as trash.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

    I've been combing through trying to find anything over the top negative, but I can't.

    That's okay, anything to avoid writing this boring letter I promised the client by first thing Monday morning.

    That's just inaccurate hyperbole.

    You're on the internet where opinions are more abundant than facts, so of course you're going to get tons of negative reviews of whatever you hold dear, especially on Reddit (where the majority (34%) of the users are in the university age range of 18-22, with 23-26 and 27-30 following behind). For the record, I own like 20+ pairs of Aldens and I say horrendously negative things about them all the time, but also love them dearly.

    Yes, I'm on reddit. I mainly lurk (kinda like here), but I check FMF frequently. I skim MFA less frequently, mainly because the style they seem to promote isn't necessarily my style.

    I'm the same (both in mostly lurking here, and in following FMF and skimming MFA a couple of times a week. I also follow GYW and WatchExchange.
