    What do sites & messages like this accomplish? Honestly asking.

      Agree completely. I find them to be more anti-intellectual than the vacuous messages themselves. Which is what's interesting about how popular they are.

        Agree. Do people really expect in-depth, reasoned critiques to Dribbble posts? Who has that kind of time?

          Funny thing is a lot of people actually mind critiques and will basically delete or ignore them as they use Dribbble as a portfolio platform, and they don't want potential clients to notice the 'mistakes'. As long as they don't finish off with 'please check out my work' then I give no fucks.

        It accomplishes being funny. It's that thing humans do when they open their mouthes, squint a bit and make a repeated halting "ha" noise that causes them to struggle to breath a bit.

        Makes you think, "what are you missing that people find attractive about this project. Or maybe you are the target audience." This project does attract hate, and therefore all the critics. It's simple execution allows room to interpret our own feelings about it. And right now, no one can argue its impact. It's opened this post to lots of discussion. In that way this project accomplishes alot.

        At least, I know it's valuable to you Eli, you've made a name for yourself sharing subjects to heavily critique. It wouldn't surprise me if you somehow had a hand in making this project.

      Imo, this shouldn't be seen as a means to accomplishing anything. This falls in the realm of self expression, like art :) Sometimes we just want to be heard, and make a splash.

        If this was supposed to be an art, then okay. Though I agree with Charlie Pratt, can't seem to see what the message like this is accomplishing. If anything, there could be more substance to using comments that have the wrong intent rather than appreciating the work / leaving constructive criticism. But instead, it's like spreading the wrong message that simple compliments to your work is a waste of time.

        The irony being the comments that they lament are indeed trying to achieve the same thing

      One way to get more followers on Twitter and the like is to simply comment and "engage". Some people are better at engagement than others, though.

      Are these kinds of comments not just another way of applauding, instead of providing feedback? And what is so bad about applauding? This medium is not very good for deep and honest conversations.

      It's just some social commentary in the form of a website to drive the point home a bit better.

      There's more than one way to skin a cat.
