There's Always Plenty of Hate to Go Around

Just what we need in this world: More hate. People who hate other people, things, and concepts can now create a hatelisting, as opposed to a fanlisting. Their motto "Because sometimes you just need to express it," does little to convince me that this is merely an outlet for negative self expression. There isn't much expression in listing your name on somebody's website in the first place, and unless this hate is consuming joining some club about it is hardly worth the effort.

Joining a hatelisting carries more weight than mentioning that you don't like something, but takes less energy than writing hate letters to CNN. It's a pointless concept altogether and I'd rather focus my dislike for something in a more descriptive form.
