Top Ten Reasons the List "Most Overrated Users On TheTopTens" Is Not So Bad

I get and know the majority of users hate this list. Blah blah blah, it's offensive, blah blah blah, it's the only place people can hate, blah blah blah. We get it. But can those reasons top these defenses for the list? I think not.

The Top Ten

1 Overrated doesn't mean bad

Somebody get this list back. - Userguy44


And this is why Britgirl is on the list.

Overrated doesn't mean bad, some of the best football players in the world are overrated. A quote from an anonymous user:
"I'm not saying she's a bad user, in fact she's a good user. I'm just annoyed that there are about a billion lists about her."
Cha-Ching. You're correct. - Puga

Exactly. I don't know why people can't get this through their thick skulls and stop treating it as an insult if their favourite user is on that list.

Yes most of the users on there receive much more praise than they deserve. There are plenty of other users who put more time into making more detailed lists. - Cazaam

2 The list isn't targeting the users

The site in my view is fun, you have to use it as you like. Britgirl is first in everything because she is the best in my opinion and many others'. Everything is just opinion based here, so you can opine anything you wish as long as you don't hurt other people.

There is no point in stating users are overrated or underrated. Saying, for example, "Someone is overrated" should mean people give that someone more value that what he/she really deserves? That is not something good. Imagine for example you are on top of the list. To some people, being on top of that list would mean some people believe you are not worth not even what people tell you you are worth. And that is hurtful.

The list is wrong because it could hurt. It is created by hate and it only generates hate. I've just seen the list and in the podium are three of the users that generate most confront on the site or are different. You know what? They may not feel ok with this. They could feel the whole ...more - keyson

Overrated doesn't necessarily mean bad. Some football players are overrated but they're not bad.

Anyone read Egnomac's description of the list at the beginning? It states that the list isn't supposed to be directed at the USERS, but the people who make needless user ranking lists putting people such as Britgirl number one all the time. - Puga

3 Hypocritical haters

To kitersunu:epic jakes comment was the serious comment,since that comment was pretty much a death threat,Pugas comment was the comedy one,he was just joking when he said that

Dear people who hate the list,
Have you created a remix of list?
If so, continue reading.
Notice how EpicJake created a remix bashing certain users. Now this is reaction to being put on the list:
"I want to hunt down the person who put me here"
Things wrong here:
So you criticise people and that's fine, but if you get criticised the person who put you there must be "hunted down" because you can't respect their opinion. This has also been noticed with BigBrotherSucks. - Puga

Sorry, but if you can't understand the difference between humor and a serious comment, then I will show you a similar comment written by a certain someone.

"I'm gonna poop on the lawn of whoever added me here."

And please don't bash users here, that thing is reserved for the list "Most Overrated Users Of TheTopTens" - Kiteretsunu

4 Most of the people there deserve to be there

Of the 107 users on the list, I've counted about 70 deserve to be there. Why?
Britgirl- number one on every list (still a good user, no doubt)
Andre56- (60 followers)
Faithangel- (90 followers)
I could probably do more if I had the room and time. - Puga

5 It's not as bad as the worst users list

That list is just cruel - DarkDragon_492

Worst- insulting, basking, hating, etc
Overrated- doesn't mean bad, higher ratings than expected, etc

See the difference? - EpicJake

6 Part of the list's popularity is due to the haters spewing post after post of why the list sucks

Exactly. People need to get real. - EpicJake

7 It keeps drama off the rest of the site
8 People going insane if they're put on the list

I wouldn't mind being on that list. Being called overrated is better than being called the worst.

I'm just happy I'm not on the list. - Minecraftcrazy530

Dear haters who created a remix,
All I'm saying if you created a remix and didn't put yourself there and then flip the table when you're put on the list,
"If you can't make fun of yourself, you can't make fun of others"
Looking at EpicJake again. - Puga

9 The haters made it popular

Both lovers and haters made it popular. The list is gone now - EpicJake

10 It was made by an experienced user as were most of the comments, unlike the worst users list

True. Criticism is not the same as bullying.

The Contenders

Danteem, PositronWildhawk, HtOutlaws2012, XanderMartin98, VideoGameFan5, ChatNoirFan18, DCfnaf, ModernSpongebobSucks - xandermartin98

Good things can be overrated too. - 3DG20

Unless you take it the wrong way, which many people did. - AnnaOfArendelle332
