Default Re: Science Saturday: Sexist Skeptics (Ann Althouse & Rebecca Watson)

There's a group of commenters here who are given to intrigue. There's a certain baseline paranoia, cult of victimhood, paired with provocation of others. They are eager to create drama and drag others into it.

They go around throwing empty accusations at people. They seem obsessed with what others do and say. They harass moderate commenters who are friendly into making judgments and taking sides. They crave constant validation even if their arguments are poorly constructed or when there's clear disagreement in basic principles. They don't seem to be able to keep to themselves and interact with others without the endless intrigue and drama.

Don't get pulled into it.
