    Default Are thread titles of the form "is X the way of the future?" the way of the future?

    To lessen productivity, gain cheap 'likes', and to troll forum member "tcaud", some members are creating threads where the thread title is of the form "Is X the way of the future?" and bloating the Philosphy, Politics, Economics subforum with garbage threads. A big concern is members suffering mental anguish as the joke becomes ever more watered down with meta-ness and the lols threaten to fall off a plateau. Could this trend be indicative of the eternal downhill direction of the16types.info forum?

    Think of it as Chemo-therapy to kill Cancer.
    Projection is ordinary. Person A projects at person B, hoping tovalidate something about person A by the response of person B. However, person B, not wanting to be an obejct of someone elses ego and guarding against existential terror constructs a personality which protects his ego and maintain a certain sense of a robust and real self that is different and separate from person A. Sadly, this robust and real self, cut off by defenses of character from the rest of the world, is quite vulnerable and fragile given that it is imaginary and propped up through external feed back. Person B is dimly aware of this and defends against it all the more, even desperately projecting his anxieties back onto person A, with the hope of shoring up his ego with salubrious validation. All of this happens without A or B acknowledging it, of course. Because to face up to it consciously is shocking, in that this is all anybody is doing or can do and it seems absurd when you realize how pathetic it is.

    This is fad, not a trend.

    I thought you were serious until I reached the last sentence.
