People are equating Q drops with the discussions by Q-sters that follow the crumbs.
Try this, if you are really sincere about finding the pieces to the Big Picture puzzle:
*Don't read the discussions. Tune them out.
*Sit down with Q drops only.
*Start with what we think may have been the first one (Oct. 28 I think), or begin even with the first Trip Code drop.
*Don't be tempted to join discussions. Merely, read the drops, create your map, research the links, connect your dots.
If you're not willing to dig for the treasure of Truth, then you don't deserve it. But, screaming and belittling the people that are doing the hard work just reveals your fear and hate.
Ask yourself, when you are feeling that fear, whether it was an individual anon that stated something, or was it Q. If it was Q, there is usually proofs and verifiable links to follow up. If it was an anon, take it with a grain of salt and do your own digging.
