The internet is saturated with negativity.
The internet allows people to voice their opinions quickly, easily, anonymously, and prolifically.
Because of the anonymity it provides, people are more likely to voice criticisms that would have otherwise gone unspoken.
They spend 10 seconds or 2 minutes to add their little drop of negativity to something, just to say it somewhere because god knows nobody wants to keep anything to themselves anymore.
Multiply a one-paragraph bitchy rant about a product times a billion, and the internet is saturated with negativity.
And shit, let's not forget how jaded we've become with scammers on the internet. We approach even established, legitimate companies with a heap of skepticism, because we know that for every legit company out there in the world, there's a nigerian prince waiting to buttfrick you.
There'd still be tons of unsolicited bitching if the Internet were around when we had Nintendo or Atari. These were mind-blowing and had our thoughts fixated on what kind of games we'd like to see, accessories, gripes about glitches, can't fricking knock out Bald Bull, etc.
Seriously, imagine the online shite storm there'd be today if you had to blow the dust out of your xbox sometimes just to get the game to load.
