In that situation it's the userbase's fault and not the theory. Either way the person ends up leaving with an idea the idea is wrong. If he's wrong then at least he's not stuck around a userbase that doesn't understand it.
    This is true, and useful for somebody who is willing to actually allow for new information. I just see a lot of people with the same idea who's valuation of truth is who has the last comeback or who is more stubborn. Those guys stick around a lot longer and rile people up on the forums more than people with a more objective goal. They don't leave.

    The world needs a bit more verbal poetry.
    The content of any medium is the previous medium. So, for instance, the content of movies is theatre.

    And so the content of the internet is real life.

    The content of the book is speech. And now the content of the internet is the book.

    Just look - the book consists of print, while the internet consists of electronic print.

    And so the content of the internet is real life.

    Real life has not gone away, it has been transformed by the internet.

    And just as real life has been transformed by the internet, so are we transformed by the internet.

    The internet distracts our mind, numbs us, so the internet can transform our senses.

    For instance, the book transformed our senses by privileging the eye, and gave us for instance, perspective, while the internet to our surprise democratises all the senses.

    We lie here on the table of the internet, anaesthetised, while our senses are operated on, unbeknownst to us.

    We are becoming new creatures while our minds are distracted by the myriad topics on the forums.

The point might be generally true and not a bad thing to consider, but does that change the fact how ridiculous and pointless the delivery might be?

    I'm not a moron; tell me once or twice, and I'll work the idea into my thinking, if it makes sense. More than that, it just becomes white noise and headache-inducing.
    This.

    Hah. No, I guess I haven't noticed that you were on some sort of mission. Should I have been describing you?

    I think I have that stubborn thing though.
