See!  I told you posting random derp on Fark was not a total waste of time.  Only a complete moran who can't count up to potato would disagree.

Your crazy if you don't think a lot of trolls aren't being paid to troll ... There is a whole industry around it.

Wait, what?  I thought people just want to see a polite and civilized discussion.  As in, none of THIS:

Uncivil comments not only polarized readers, but they often changed a participant's interpretation of the news story itself.

In the civil group, those who initially did or did not support the technology - whom we identified with preliminary survey questions - continued to feel the same way after reading the comments. Those exposed to rude comments, however, ended up with a much more polarized understanding of the risks connected with the technology.

Simply including an ad hominem attack in a reader comment was enough to make study participants think the downside of the reported technology was greater than they'd previously thought.


I blame this on Fartbama and the libtards.
