  •  It's a form of hysteria. (3+ / 0-)

    It is reflected in the reactions we see when a comment is proffered that even slightly deviates from the various memes. They react in such a way that you'd think that what we say here actually determines the future course of history. Whatever my opinions of various issues, I've never taken a single conversation here too seriously; after all, we're just shooting the shit. Comments, diaries, everything here is ethereal; conversations are entertaining (and sometimes enlightening) but within hours the diary is old and the conversation has moved on (with no lasting impact to the world either way). Yet when you witness the intense level of anger spewing from some of these people you'd think that it actually matters that an anonymous person on the internet said this or that.
