#145 - HonkIfIDriveWell (09/02/2014) [-]
I just like getting confirmation. As in, I would have previously had thoughts like "I bet she has x all over her y" or "I reckon her x's are tiny and her y's are massive" and then I actually see the pictures and for some reason it's just awesome to actually acquire that information.

No, I said it's the worst reason to not be thrilled by it. I fapped to those images like the next guy, but they were released without consent, so any kind of moral objection would definitely be a better reason to not be thrilled by it than not finding her attractive. Seeing as how that pretty much sums up all the reasons that someone would not be thrilled by it, yours is the worst reason.

Your logic still eludes me. Just because she's a celebrity doesn't mean I have to be excited just because naked pictures of her were released. Don't get me wrong, there's no moral objection here, if she took the pictures she should have expected this. But you are quite literally telling me that not being attracted to her is not an acceptable reason to not be interested in her naked pictures, and that makes absolutely no sense. Literally all i'm saying here is that I don't see what the big deal is. She isn't attractive as far as i'm concerned, so why should I care if she has nudes or not?

"But you are quite literally telling me that not being attracted to her is not an acceptable reason to not be interested"
Except that I'm absolutely not. In your original post, you said "not thrilled" which is different to not being interested, because you can be interested without being thrilled.
For example, morally-outraged people are interested because they care about what happened, but they are certainly not thrilled, and they probably have the best reason for not being thrilled.
Not finding Jennifer Lawrence attractive is a crappy reason to not be thrilled because it has nothing to do caring about her privacy.
You see, the phrase "not particularly thrilled about x" is generally taken to mean "unhappy regarding x" which would mean that you're unhappy about the photos because you don't find her attractive. See what I mean?
#173 - FunkMastaNickyNick (09/02/2014) [-]
Except that clearly isn't what I meant in this particular instance. The very definition of "thrill" is a feeling of excitement. So, by saying i'm "not thrilled" by something means it doesn't excite me, therefor it doesn't interest me, not that it upsets me. Just because i'm not overly excited like everyone else on the planet doesn't mean I have a problem with it or i'm unhappy. And you're right, this has nothing to do with the invasion of her privacy. All I said was that she has naked pictures, and I don't care about them because she isn't attractive to me. Simple as that.
#180 - HonkIfIDriveWell (09/02/2014) [-]
I see what you're saying, but despite "thrill" meaning "excited", "thrilled" is a synonym of "happy" in normal contexts, which means that by extension "not thrilled" is synonymous with "unhappy" which is what I assumed you meant.
It's a simple misunderstanding. You used a combination of words that made me think you meant something other than you did.
#193 - FunkMastaNickyNick (09/02/2014) [-]
If you want to go to extremes, then yes. You're right about the definition. But just because something doesn't make you happy, that doesn't mean you're unhappy about it either. You can be indifferent to something and still use the exact same phrasing. If everything were as black and white as a positive and a negative at all times, then you would be correct. But, we both know things aren't that simple, and as such there is always a neutral ground between the two. Granted, a lot of that has to do with emotion, which is not exactly easy to convey through text, so I apologize if my direct meaning wasn't immediately clear.
