Oh, the humanity.
The culture of lowbrow, snotty anonymous commenting flourished in the '00s, with the comment fields of YouTube, Digg, and many forums and blogs becoming hotbeds for some of the Web's tawdriest and slimiest. But perhaps the worst offender of them all is that shadowy figure who just needs some kind of attention and validation, and feels the need to broadcast that he scrolled to that comment field before anyone else did by entering simply "FIRST!!!!!!"
That's why we put him on the last slide. And yet, considering this list runs in reverse, somehow he still gets to be first. Funny how that is.
