    • This old story popped up on my Firefox "recommended reading" tab this morning, and I found it interesting.

      We all have our faults, but for those of us who realize that, we can work on changing/minimizing them. For others, education to show them the errors. For those who have fallen deep down the rabbit hole, all we can do is "mitigate the harm to themselves or others."



      TLR; Education and research still trumps a YouTube/Facebook video, and ignoring the "problem" won't make it go away. Instead you need to continue to state the facts, If not for the lost soul, so at least others can be informed as well. Unfortunately it's a two way street that can be (and is) used by conspiracy folk as well.

        This contains a perfect summary of the dilemma of the troll on another thread:

        What if Oliver is too far gone and can’t change his ways even if he wanted to? Like other bad habits, intellectual bad habits can be too deeply entrenched to change. This means living with their consequences. Trying to reason with people who are obstinately closed-minded, dogmatic or prejudiced is unlikely to be effective. The only remedy in such cases is to try to mitigate the harm their vices do to themselves and to others.
        The whole piece is excellent. Thank you!

        • I'm admiring the optimism of those who think COVID is planned. They have never been in a group project for school or been a project manager, have they? Getting even five people to do what they need to do on time is nearly impossible! And even if they did, getting all of them to stay quiet!

          • One thing about the copy paste conspiracies from Q circulating on social media: so poorly written, even Stefenie Meyer and EJ Samuels look at them and cringe.
