For people who suck, like you, yes.

However this post received a -5. Interesting.

So... mostly-rude comments are acceptable, encouraged, and supported... yet completely-rude comments are not?

Perhaps is similar to clique phenomena, such as is found in High School: whereby a certain level of harassment is considered cool and tasteful within the group, but if someone crosses the 'acceptable' line, other members will reject them.

Interesting community.
Look at what people are replying to. A lot of complaints are because the poster is making the mistakes themselves and then they reject all advice. They would rather say that the game is broken in some area than take any advice telling them how to fix their problem. In those cases, yes I do +1 the guy saying learn to play.

This feeling... so strange. I've felt it some time ago, almost like a dream, but I can't remember very well what happened. It's as if some beast inside is trying to get out. I hear incomprehensible whispers, then all of a sudden a scream "STOP CRYING AND MOANING ABOUT EVER TRIVIAL THING AND GROW UP"

Guy, I don't know what's happening, please help!
For the most part, it's the religious zealot fanboys who downvote every negative thing about this game, while, for the most part, new timers post their complaints (rightly so) and dont bother with the forum community at all. So you get this

Theyd rather say this game is perfect in all it's glory, and that matchmaking isnt bad, you gotta learn to play! Pahleeez

Stop picking zeratul and nova.

and go back to lol.
If you see a "L2P" or "Get good" comment, it usually means that OP threw a temper tantrum, because he/she was wrecked by something he/she didn't know how to deal with. The most infamous example is "Stealth is OP, nerf it" threads and their derivatives.
Halp ! there is toxicity on my internets! In my car.. my house, my job, even my dog is toxic! What am I going to do. Toxicity, toxicity, everywhere!!!!
The HOTS Reddit community is a lot better than this one.
