I mean a lot of it was fine; it would just be jokes. memes. “the left can’t meme” is itself a meme. Saying things that _could_ be true but aren’t and watching how others react. “social experiments” to see what the people do whether left or right or center. Teasing ‘the masses’ from the safety of mom’s basement.
But when people would take it seriously, believing it, then you had the OMG IT’S AWFUL news vs the OMG IT’S ALL TRUE WE NEED TO RISE UP, PATRIOTS in the Q Anon and related areas.
And so a lot of it started to get really annoying
