I thought that if I would just ignore all the nonsense from disreputable websites like 'The Mind Unleashed' it would eventually die of its own accord but if anything it appears to be getting stronger. Has anyone else noticed this or is it a consequence of the booster jabs I had the other day?

Its not just that children have already died from the vaccine conspiracy but I innocently clicked one of those links that got shared and read the comments, it was as you might imagine full of asshats having a circle jerk wank over how much smarter (or more open-minded) they were to the sheeple. What is worse is that it seems to be a trend that is steadily creeping more into real life encounters whereas before people had the good sense to keep it online or at least in their circles.

The obvious answer would be to challenge this from friends sharing it on facebook but that doesn't really work when on social media egos are at stake. So yeah I dunno, maybe we should go back to using MSN.

I'm not sure how awkward teenage erotic role play will change anything. And if memory serves it was worse than having to put up with the types you're talking about.

No, OP, there has to be a better way...

I recently deleted my facebook account - and damn it felt good - but never personally saw any links from this conspiraloon site on my feed. Saw plenty of other questionable shite mind.

Ignore this garbage OP, you're better than that.

I've though about this a lot and I've come to the conclusion if I'm ever made minister of education, I'll make epistemology a core subject, I hope to wipe out cults, radical idealologies, conspiracies, and altenative medicine within a generation.

I really wish I didn't come across this post, because I wasn't aware of these shite-peddling websites until now. It's made me sad and depressed.

It's getting really tiring seeing these self-congratulatory posts about deleting one's facebook. Really? You deleted it? Wow, go you. A lot of us don't have shit friends we follow, a lot of us don't add every dipshit we meet, a good majority know how to use Facebook's unfollow function quite easily - it's a matter of clicking a button.

A lot of us don't even look at the website any more and just use it as an extended phonebook and calendar for dipshits we meet but dipshits that we don't want to have our number. I just cannot fathom the idea of spending time on Facebook.

Neither do I, it's a very handy form of messaging as well - although Whatsapp is quickly becoming my favourite.

I sometimes glance at what friends are doing around the world, it's pleasant, sometimes irrelevant, other times annoying. With the latter I simply unfollow, or even as going as far as reviewing why I'm even friends with the person in the first place. If it there is no good reason, deleted.

It's like eating cheeseburgers, day in, day out - knowing it's making you fat and lazy, and then suddenly stopping which automatically makes you think you've finally seen the truth and are some sage-like guru. Fuck that.

I think organised criminal activity and nepotism happen. I don't think there are alien cover ups or reptilian overlords.

Just thought I'd let you know that I haven't deleted my Facebook account on account of never having had one.

What about if we made our own website focusing on refuting all the stories from these places through simple fact checking and reading the abstracts of the studies they cite or what-have-you?

We could give it a catchy name like 'Collective Devolution' and spend 5 minutes asking the people who are cited in the articles for comment.

Thanks for the update. Coming up at the top of the hour, a roundup of who's returning from their Twitter break and who isn't, but first the weather with some guy with a foreign name.

I wouldn't expect that to be of much use. I wouldn't imagine that the typical person who falls for that shit is likely to appreciate the value of scepticism, critical thinking or even understand why checking sources is important.

I know it makes me sound like an arrogant dickhead, but one of the reasons I hate facebook is being reminded that people this thick exist in droves. I genuinely don't understand how they operate in society.
