Sky I'd agree with all your points, and would like to add that many of the discussions or statements are a result of a majority of readers/posters need to be infallible or justified in their opinion, or to find co-dependency in their paranoia, distress mis/understandings. In otherwords they post and argue (include me at times) to find community.
Your last paragraph about humility is simply breathtaking.
Humilty is the result of understanding yourself and others, and more of it is needed when discussing or reporting the content we discuss.
I'm not sure of your motive however for this thread?
The figures on these kind of postings you give...should they stop? Is that what you are asking? surely would severly deplete revenue from traffic on
this site, that can't be a goal?
Is it a result of general frustration of what you have to read daily?
Is it to steer to more quality content? Is it to try ammend quality not numbers of posts due to more informed reader and poster understandings? If
