    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.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    This is fad, not a trend.

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