Can everyone stop with this negativity!

Seriously, this is absolutely just juvenile. I cannot stand this and I hope none of you are doing this on the XBOX One board too.

Threads like "Wii U might die" and "*insert console here* is better than wii u" are ridiculous topics to even put on the internet on any board because they cause nothing but conflicts that could have easily been avoided.

Not only that, I am noticing that a lot of people are using logical fallacy when making these threads or just making posts here anyway. Here are just a few... (!!= Example)

Name calling
This logical fallacy is when a person basically says negative things about the person or people with the opposing argument instead of backing up their own argument with "hard" evidence or any evidence.

"You are obviously just a !!deluded fanboy!! who doesn't want to see your precious favorite system die. !!The PS4 and XBOX One has *insert number here* preorders.!! It is destined to kill off Wii U."

The preorders or sales of another system does not effect the sales of another system. People do not decide to buy a system because it is selling well or vice versa. Also, how do you know that all of those people don't want a wii u too and are just deciding to buy PS4 or Xbox One first? There are people who are interested in buying more than one console (example: me), but wants to wait a while or has to invest in each one one-by-one.

Overgeneralization
This is when a person makes a statement that is too broad or general to even be true. They are easy to spot because they are basically biased claims that contain no evidence whatsoever. I refer to them as God-sentences (when people say something is going to happen as if they are God)

"Obviously, the Wii U is destined to die off next year"

How do you know this?

Loaded language
This is when a person uses biased words to invoke certain feelings such as guilt, inferiority or even sadness. This is the worst in my opinion because even I have had occasions of being tricked by this.

"You are obviously just a !!deluded!! fanboy who doesn't want to see your !!precious!! system die. The PS4 and XBOX One has *insert number here* preorders. It is destined to kill off Wii U. Quit !!dreaming!! and realize that the Wii U is !!terrible!!.

Anyway, can everyone just stop and talk about something positive for once?

The best thing to do is to stop going on the Wii U board.

It's dangerous to go alone.

It ain't gonna stop. Best thing to do is just to not get so caught up in things you can't control in the gaming industry, and ignore anyone who constantly talks like how you've described. But then again, I guess there's an inner desire in a lot of ppl to respond to negativity, instead of just ignore it.

You know, I might just take your advice and that other guy below you. (also, userfrigginame)

However, I don't see why people come here only to nitpick and say negative things about wii u. That's like people going into a bar saying negative stuff about alcoholic beverages. If you have so much negativity towards alcoholic drinks, why would you go into the main place where people go to drink them and hang out?

Of you go into a casino saying so much negative stuff about gambling. If you have so much negativity towards gambling, I don't think it is a good idea to address that in the main place where people gamble.

I think you're confusing negativity with trolling, in which case, I wholeheartedly agree. The amount of trolling on this board is insane, I just can't stand it anymore.

Negativity can be trolling if it uses the logical fallacies I mentioned. Also, know that the ones I mentioned aren't all of them.
