Really upset. Mad as hell and not going to take it anymore upset. And their anger was completely deserved, really, so we're not passing judgment there.

Naturally, social media is a great outlet for your frustration. By great I mean probably not the best if you're going to swear and throw a tantrum under your own name. We get it, you are upset.

I especially appreciated the creativity and irony of this one:

Who wants to bet behind the scenes Colin was screaming, cursing and making NASBA voodoo dolls? Nothing wrong with that.

Remember kids: while your rage may be warranted, outbursts are not.
