It deletes thought and discourse, so it’s a net-negative 1

Could be “good” or “bad,” like this weaksauce topic. 8

Might help understand why “they” share political memes.

Obviously, if you don’t usually partake we’re not counting the occasional contact high here.

I get it, it’s rhetoric being devoid of context) and it feels emotionally good. Those two characteristics are also my objections to memes ... even ones from “my” or “our” side.

Dang, lookit that. I just opined in the negative and put “illicit reasons” into perpetrators’ intent. Unfair?

Personally, I have no idea why.



Foreal though, I like anything that's funny. I'm definitely a cat person first. The internet's primary purpose is the deification of Cats.

"Fun" isn't a choice because doing anything for fun, where it has implications for someone else, means it either expresses something your audience will agree with or they will not.

My position is that politics inherently isn't personal. Everything you choose to do or ignore has implications for others, good or bad. Politics can be a compromise, but not neutral.

Care to try it again?

I thought it was an honest question.

Yay or nay.

Simple

Too simple?

C’mon, folks. This ain’t really a minor, forgettable thing is it?
