I get why the phrase exists. But it just proves that you cant do anything right on the internet.
You disagree with some one: you’re a troll You agree with some one: Circle jerk ensues

Sorry to be a troll, but I think you’re over simplifying it. Circlejerking doesn’t refer to the act of agreeing with somebody, it refers to what happens when a community constantly re-enforce an opinion amongst themselves without anyone to challenge them. The problem is that it can make people think of something that is controversial or incorrect as being undisputed or factual because they just keep hearing one side of the issue.
Similarly, trolling isn’t just disagreeing. It means you’re disagreeing in an inflammatory way that is supposed to provoke anger.

I just feel that if I’m going to be in a circle jerk, someone should actually be jerking me off, and that hasn’t happened yet :(
