New resaerch from the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay, finds that both reading rant sites and posting on them can bring on negative mood shifts. Rant sites such as JustRage.com and NotAlwaysRight.com allow people to annoymously vent about any topic they’d like. To find the effect they have on people, researchers surveyed 32-rant-site-users about their anger, their visitation habits, why they read other people’s rants, and how rating made them feel. Lead author of the study, Ryan Martin, says that they found that people tend to rant because it makes them feel relaxed right after they do it. In a second, similar study, ranters said they felt sad after reading rants, and after writing rants they felt less happy and angrier. Martin says anything done with the intent of blowing off steam is counterproductive because it prolongs the amount of time you spend focusing on negative feelings.  (Women’s Health)
