In an age when most major media outlets are providing outrage-of-the-hour content, one should not be surprised that the community built around that is also comprised of illogical, emotionally charged drivel flavored with a smattering of generally useless regurgitated trivia posing as genuine information.
Reminds me of a few online communities I know and used to like.
Attribution note: That was a comment posted by “Bunny” (no web address) in a discussion of the importance of community for media. Too bad the hosting website didn’t allow back links for commenters, because if they did I could credit the source. Since the comments belong to the commenter (and not the site), I see no need to link to the site that hosted the comment, and since they don’t allow out links, I choose not to offer one back. The article wasn’t that good anyway… this comment was the best part.
