Results for - Hatin' On Things

In my reading about media lately, i've encountered the concept of "hate-viewing" certain TV shows; that is, watching a show so out of spite and to make fun of it . I suppose this kind of hating could apply to consuming most any kind of media and many other activities, too. But how common is it among Tellwutters?

3. Even if you are a "hater," can you how engaging in that kind of irony is the product of a prosperous society whose paricipants are afforded an abundance of leisure time compared to its forebears?

Yes, that makes at least some sense to me.
