    Congratulations on discovering something we all did as kids, though: the concept of six degrees of separation.

    Also, you can continue rubbing yourself off in public without my help. You qualitatively fail to meet the requirements for intelligent conversation, so I'm signing out.
    Your copious political ranting in the "Trump Dump" thread proves otherwise.

    I have never once seen you post anything that doesn't align with the "left wing team narrative".

    You start a big holy-war about the fact that I don't trust one source due to anecdotal experiences because "not trusting" that site
    is a sign of political insubordination and wrong-think.

    Is there any possibility for a human remaining "socially sane&functional" to avoid "social-oriented&engineered narratives" ?

    You know, I mean something like X*Y=constant

    It's really not possible, man. It's not how the mind is designed by evolution (to avoid narratives 'cause narratives are essential in human interaction and so reproduction, scientific ones too of course: "scientific truths" are by consensus and praxis, not by a divine "objectivity" nobody today believes in).

    Political teams simply discovered this long time ago and use it everyday.

    It's why an intelligent person like you can socially drift and it's not a good thing, in particular if you want to expose the "dynamics of the truth".

A lack of reaction can be read as many different things by later readers. In the absence of stronger moderation, should we be more vocal in opposing this kind of rubbish, or is that pointless and/or unnecessary?

    Why "opposing" and not "refocusing" ? - the virus "origin" is not the problem (and the origin is pretty natural, no engineered weapon kills so indirectly like SARS2) so simply refocus on the real problem every time the "conspiracy approach" jumps out

    I don't think that loony conspiracy theories posted in the off-topic forum of a legacy gaming site visited by a small number of old regulars is going to influence anybody. I also think by continuing to debate it, we encourage more and more of it, and thus amplify the nonsense.

    It can also hijack threads and fill them with pages and pages of noise. Fortunately, nbohr1more doesn't crank out posts at machine gun speed like jkcerda did.

    Oh, I don't worry about people being influenced by the verbal sewage. I worry about people coming here, looking at a thread or two and saying, "Ooookay, here be cranks..." and leaving again. Or (and possibly worse) looking at the idiocy and deciding that this is their kind of people.

    I agree that continuing to debate loony conspiracy theories isn't productive. At the same time, not countering it might make it seem like fair game for the lunacy to continue.

    I think initially showing people that unfiltered nonsense is unwelcome tells them as well as the forum that some standards are being upheld; at the same time I've disengaged from the debate because between faetal, Renz, catbarf et al., that job is now done, IMO.

    Countering every tit with a tat is what makes it continue. It just keeps opening the door for another response. Didn't you guys learn anything from jkcerda?

    It's a fair call to not let the tit for tat continue past the opening gambit.

    As for jkcerda, well. I'll let Renz field that one.

    @piglick - my man, whatever you're having, I'll have one more.
