People that wake up everyday to sunshine regardless of the actual weather, whose lives look peachy perfect b/c of their demeanor, whose energies and smiles motivate you or make you want to strangle them... 

Or do you?

It's all right here in the OP:

The posters are simply asserting their sunny dispositions. 


Duh.

I'll take a box of dry Merlot over a bottle of Sutter Home white zin any day of the week. 

Can I get an amen?

Isn't that the defense/blame you are using for your actions/comments here?

Good point, the only box wine that I have really noticed is the super sweet white zin type stuff, way too sweet for me and not worth any amount of money, imo.  Now a big hearty deep red zin?  Amen on that one.

I think you are missing the point here.  No one is upset when past information comes back (well there was one poster who was upset when I mentioned the state of Florida and family), when what is repeated is true and factual.  Problem is there is very little truth and/or facts in this "past information".  They were made up comments and spin then, they are still made up comments and spin threads later.

Perhaps there is some alternative definition for sunny?

I think the Black Box reds--both the Merlot and Cab Sav are totally drinkable. Non-oaked, of course, but far better than what you're going to get in those little single-serving bottles that a lot of bars serve.

Well that poster was upset because the information was not correct. It was not something that was volunteered in the past and brought up again.

OK, so you don't REALLY want to know what it is you do to provoke people?  I'm confused.  Isn't that what you asked?
