Here are the 5 worst things on piq, represented proportionally in annoyance above
Look I know depression is a real issue, I understand its a touchy subject, but people not so much searching, rather begging for sympathy from total strangers on piq is not only incredibly annoying, but very narcissistic.
If you do suffer from depression, seek a medical professional, you will not find sympathy online (rightfully so).
I coined the term refwhore, but its less of an issue of the people who copy piqs from reference rather than their supporters.
Their supporters are unaware and ignorant to the deficiency of skill required to use references.
It doesn't help that refwhores are some of the most popular users on the site, and steal the attention from more deserving users.
3. Overly sensitive-
People take feedback as an insult on this site.
People consider criticism bullying on this site.
This needs to stop. I know this community is full of special snowflakes, but people need to toughen up, because by responding to the haters, you simply fuel their desires.
4. People "leaving"-
The notion that by pretending to leave you are somehow making a statement needs to die.
You are leaving for attention, sympathy and out of spite, if you return to the site.
What I ask is that when one leaves the site, they be honest, and actually leave, isntead of making a masturbatory gesture, for example these piqs here:
All three special snowflakes above returned to the site in less than a month. That is called begging for attention.
5. Moaning about the good old days-
I can't bare the pathetic notion of masturbating over "how good piq used to be". The only person creating the stigma that piq is shit today, are these very people.
Most of these people have only been on the site for a year, and become self-righteous hipsters.
Because all you are, are in fact, glorified hipsters, deliberately ruining the site, for your own pleasure.
