Where are the truly original retorts?

Been sitting here reading the comments on various submissions and feel compelled to ask; what has happened to the truly original retort? How much brain power does it take to copy and paste "copy/paste" or "repost" on someone's submission? And why is it that so many of the comments are either unrelated to the upload or continuations of personal vendettas against a harmless and faceless member who at one point in time dared to give a thumbs down to a comment? Or, while I'm thinking of it, why are so many of our fellow members capable of making comments only if they have crude, vulgar sex references? Is this what this forum has become?


So, come on, let's try to find some of the wit that inspired people like Sir Winston Churchill to make comebacks like: " You are drunk Sir Winston, you are disgustingly drunk.""Yes, Mrs. Braddock, I am drunk. But you, Mrs. Braddock are ugly, and disgustingly fat. But, tomorrow morning, I, Winston Churchill will be sober." Mark Twain, Jefferson, and Franklin were also known to have sharp but brilliant tongues when needed. This generation and more to the point, this site,

not so much.


Any thoughts? Make them good because I am already regretting submitting this.
