I make a point of complaining all I can, but overall I've developed a good ability to find good/amusing things in any bad situation, so it really just depends on my mood and what I actually want to find in that situation.

Depends on my mood.
I must say, though, that I'm really pessimistic about what the quality of the posts in the Doom 3 forum will be like when Doom 3's out.
