2 They are repetitive

They are very annoyingly repetitive. They're the same criteria, and rarely supported with anything that justifies the list's existence. - PositronWildhawk

There's practically endless opportunities to slap one together in 30 seconds, so they're easily becoming lazy fodder for lists that screams quantity over quality. Not to mention comparison lists are often invalid, as the two things being compared are usually completely different to each other in the first place. - Entranced98

It's getting old. And some items on comparison lists are kinda similar, like this one is funnier, and that (insert a fictional character) is cool, etc... - Delgia2k

Nope,not really - Nateawesomeness

One said that everyone loves caillou.

5 It offends some fans

Offense is not given, it is taken. If you want to be offended by other people's opinions, you may, but don't blame the person who "offended" you. - LemonComputer

Oh great frozen caps girl is here. And this isn't even a frozen list.

Looks like the "All Caps Girl " came here

Because they don't respect opinions - Nateawesomeness

6 They rarely have valid information

Because they are jokes,learn that! - Nateawesomeness

7 Reasons why (insert user here) is better than (insert famous person here)

Those lists are uninspired. Users and famous people have nothing in common. The worst thing is there is a list like that about me. - cosmo

I guess I failed at trying to encourage people. Yes, I started this list trend. - RiverClanRocks

Honestly, these lists are seriously ridiculous. - Delgia2k

Those are great - Nateawesomeness

8 They're pointless
9 They are so bad it becomes hilarious

10 It's ridiculous

What's ridiculous is you feeding the trolls - Nateawesomeness

The Contenders

11 They are annoying

Yea,reasons why diamonds are better then porcupines and reasons why wind club is better then transformers are annoying - Nateawesomeness

12 They make online wars
13 They don't make sense
14 Comparing things that are both good and both bad
15 Most are biased

Nobody wants to actually debate anything in this site, we just want to be told over and over that Thing-X is better or worse than Thing-Y. Just looks at all the Justin Beiber hate lists, they're all totally unoriginal.

16 Trolls
17 Other users make lists that prove how those ones are wrong

Honestly, I don't know what's more sad: The fact that they exist; or the fact that people still respond to them, even when they are blatantly trolling.

18 Stat padding
19 Confusing logic
