Saying "there's nothing to do" is a straight up lie. If you're going to argue on the forums, be honest and say there's nothing you're interested in. Someone might actually mistake your lie for reality.
    You only see this from your perspective, thats what I am trying to explain.
    "There is nothing to eat" despite the fridge being full is actually a very common thing and because of that part of many jokes.

    Those people are not lying. For them there really is "nothing to do", so if you ask them, that is what they will answer. They do not consider other things to be "something to do" because mount farming, pet battling and running around the fountain in Stormwind is all the same to them.

    If you see a movie theater, walk up the front door, ask what's playing, and some guy standing outside says nothing's playing right now when in reality there's a bunch of stuff playing he doesn't care about, and you believe his lie and walk away, you don't see that as a problem? The propogation of misinformation in the form of people using their opinion in a hyperolic manner?
    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.
