this is my reasoning too. plenty of people want a ticket to the freak show of their choice. some people watch the voice, some people watch ru paul's drag race, some people watch TLC, some people watch the bachelor---at the end of the day though you're really just gawking at weirdos anyway. i just prefer mine all-natural.They are an adequate replacement for over dramatic TV without all the fakeness. Lolcow can somehow be unreasonable but still keep the elements of realism that TV can't. This make them really enjoyable to watch and easy to form a human connection whether positive or negative.
