Sometimes I wonder if our planet is sentient.

Sometimes I wonder if humans are really sentient.

It's too damn long for a thread with discussion going. It's a lot of scrolling! I'm not always logged in, so "foe" doesn't work and scroll-scroll-scroll it goes just to reach someone's one-liner before the next scroll-scroll-scroll. It's impolite. A headline, a few paragraphs and the link suffice. I did it in the days of the Wall Street thread, but no one was complaining because that one moved a lot slower, and, humbly, I was finding a lot of different perspectives. If one fears the Memory Hole (that used to be the justification, for me too) and therefore wants to archive full articles, I'm for it but not in the middle of active discussions. Often it's done passive-aggressively, as an answer to someone's point.


Perfect summary of my thoughts on this 'phenomenon' (and I would wager we're not alone in this sentiment).
Well done, JR.

I don't feel too bad about your having to scroll through a copy/pasted article.
Normally I would suggest just reading the darn thing.
But I scroll right through a lot of crap too, never thought to complain about scrolling through - maybe complain about the article itself.
And sure, weaponized copy/pasta is poor technique,
Anyway it was more in response to the idea that this very thread was fouled by "copypasta".
So cheers :cheers:
