We can't have a token of positivity for the new year get in the way of the anger and hatred on the Internet, now can we?

Seriously, don't support Gawker with clicks to their network.

I get really sick of the overboard cynicism many people seem to deem necessary sometimes.

That was a very noble idea and a cool way to bring something positive to people. But of course someone had to destroy that. I have nothing against pranks as long as they are funny and not offending. This prank - not amusing.

Ok, maybe I'm daft, but isn't transforming the negative Mein Kampf into a "cute little dog" exactly what that program was designed to do? What am I missing?

I never got Twitter and don't see the point. It makes the stupid look stupider and adds nothing to anything.
I get even less the people who make it their mission to mess with things others do for their own amusement. That's some sad mental health right there.

The letters making up the picture aren't random letters.

Twitter has taught me that, there are a lot of mentally disturbed people in this world.
