This behavior is disgusting in ways I cannot begin to describe. You didn't even attempt to do anything helpful, and probably didn't even read the post you responded to. To others: don't waste your time clicking on this link, it's just an obfuscated link to lmgtfy.com

I'd call it lazy or boorish. Disgusting is not the right word. Unhelpful, yes. Disgusting, no.

Get over yourself.

The commenter should have just googled it if they wanted context. You are disgusting.

I'm noticing a trend recently of accounts created seemingly for the sole purpose of insulting a specific post / comment, and it's beginning to seriously irritate me. Does anyone know why this seems to be on the rise, and if there's anything that can be done to stop it?

(if you're not actually such an account, then sorry for falsely accusing you, but my irritation at the trend in general still stands).

I don't think I've ever seen a post get downvoted so hard that it's actually invisible. Severely faded, yes.
