@Soosie- My post was not a comparison - but an observation of two very obvious kinds of the many kinds of negativity.

 

Negativity is not a disease - neither could being a religious believer, being an atheist, or being anywhere between the two be considered a disease.

 

Negativity - because no medical test - blood, x-ray, cat scan, MRI, - even DNA can detect or measure any abnormality - is unquestionably not a disease.

 

It's most likely a thought disorder - a very common one that most humans have to some extent...

What is the purpose of this question? Are you feeling ill and looking for the cause?

I think this is a prime example of what happens on this board. Someone always tries to divert or as one poster so often mentions "going off topic."

If it is a disease, there is an epidemic here especially among a select few posters.  Again not mentioning a person.  But for a few when they make a post, there are these select few almost immediately in most cases starts sowing the seeds of discord in sort of a 'king of the hill' way.

So that would mean that negativity toward Obama and Hillary is a symptom of the disease - every bit as much as negativity toward trump and his owner Putin is a symptom of the disease...

 

Is there a cure?
