Why is everyone such a whiner?

It's freakin' impossible to have a funny conversation around here anymore. Every time I see someone say something funny, the first responses are always some whiner who adds absolutely nothing to the conversation.

What ever happened to "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything?"?

-waits for all the whiney answers in response to this post-

There are those who see something wrong and a) fix it, b) ignore it, c) whine about it.

Now quit whining about whiners.

Some people just refuse to find goodness and happiness and butterflies and sunshine... and prefer to thrive on complaints and negativity.

Maybe "Happy Hour" ain't a place for them?
