Can Any1 explain what does "Reassurance Topic" means?

#1QuadForce878Posted 4/29/2014 2:10:16 PM
Lately I've been seeing this term being used on the XB1 boards almost at least once in almost every topic.

Just a bunch of idiots who cant let positive xbox one news go without criticism

people use it as an attack to suggest a poster is choosing to ignore facts in favor of validating his/her
choices in his/her purchases.

It's the catch phrase a troll uses when they have nothing witty to say yet their mental trigger to spew negativity simply cannot be contained. It serves double purpose to make the troll feel at ease with their choice in life.

I suppose, in a way, it's an affirmation.

It's where people try and put a positive spin on negative things.

To be fair? It's not always something people do when just trolling.

There are indeed topics that are all about reassurance. Clearly people just trying to justify their purchase.

You see it occasionally on the Wii U, Xbone and Vita boards. That said, people are way too loose and fast with calling a topic a reassurance topic. Some will call any positive thread reassurance when that's simply not the case, the people who do that are indeed trolling.
The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.

Reassurance topics are what you call something when you can't think of a rebuttal to the topic in question. It's basically the new, "u mad?"
