Sappy Sammy's Status

Social networking:  I have written about this topic before.  It has become so popular the past couple of years, that it is becoming very hard to ignore.  It is so easy to share your feelings.  To be even more specific, it is very easy to share your negative feelings.

With that said, I realize that all of us complain at some point.  We cannot go through a life of only sunshines and rainbows.  However, there are certain things that we should learn to keep to ourselves - or at least not share with the entire world.

How many of you have Myspace, Facebook, or Twitter?  Now, let me ask you this:  How many of you have a Debbie Downer or a Sappy Sammy on your preferred social networking website?  You know the drill.  He or she is constantly updating his or her "status".  It always has to be about how much the said person's life sucks.  In response to the status, there are a million bajillion comments that go something like:

Awww, I'm sorry!  :(
What's wrong?  Text me.

Which gives said person the attention he or she desires.  Does nobody else find this incredibly annoying?  Sometimes I think I am the only one who even notices, but maybe not.  Maybe there are others out there that feel the same way I do.  How do you feel about the increase in social networking, sharing your thoughts online, and those Debbie Downers or Sappy Sammy's in your life?
