Or turn your hate into positivity and take 5 mins out of your day to do something nice for someone else like give them a compliment

Being negative is viral, remember that you are influencing those around you with your own feelings.

Same thing with being positive, try it

It's going to serve as the We Rule thread garbage dump, so yes.

I knew it :another Touch Pet dogs! BIG FAIL! That's why I don't like this dev.
and.... This game has ADS!
and for those who asked about pricing: the store in the game is now available yet.

It'd be great if the internet was full of rainbows and everyone being cheery and nice, but that will never happen. We just have to learn how to interact with each other without causing too much influence in any one area.

Freemium games are almost like going to an arcade and popping quarters into the machine, but for your iPhone and iPod touch. A Touch Arcade, if you will.

But yeah, not sure I dig the model myself. It's better to pay for and own a full game, with optional paid expansions, than to have to deal with a sort of crippled subscription thing going on.
