Counterhill: W O R D Y O U R H I L L S B E T T E R
You use the wrong words that mean something different. It’s ok, you’re human. But that’s why your hill made no sense.
mumble mumble something about “engaging in good faith” hills. So, you’re CNN + Fox + Youtube with the clickbait – AND you get salty when you’re misunderstood. Amazing.
Comment: haha i meant 4 but you know, Breitbart does it too haha.
I’ll be honest, I do it too – taking an exaggerated position to push forward discussion. I don’t do it so much here as this is a good faith group. But in a standard political discussion group? Sure.
Thing is though, like that PC post, you can’t assume people are going to read every comment. They shouldn’t have to.
The hill you declare *is* the hill you stand on.
If you want to clarify, edit it for the benefit of future responses. Conversations can go 50-100-200 comments.
I’m not saying this to criticize; it’s just a matter of less effective vs more effective communications.
You _could_ recommend that laissez faire outlook, but then it’s yet ANOTHER common shitposting group. Hard to find discourse groups that _also_ are loose enough for fun. This group has those qualities.
Oh by editing, it’s not ediiting “I was wrong”, it’s editing for further clarification and to counter common claims.
Take that to a further level and you become just another dog whistler though, calling out your own who understand. In-jokes that are kind of stale meat anymore, esp in politically charged discourse
But, to each their own.
You may or may not be. But you also can’t fully discredit people who are jaded by repeated exposure to *similar* looking behaviors for “if it quacks like a duck” responses.
Example: I get mistaken for all kinds of people online. To one, I sound like a sexist, egotistical bigot and on another day, I sound like everything anybody who considers themselves anti-SJW can’t stand.
Usually, I sound like Mr. Rogers with too much coffee.
Most people jump to judgement. I can artificially hasten their jump to judgement but when I do, I’m trolling, noble cause or not.
