Think about it.  Just take some of these posters in John's forums.  We've run into them time and time again, where they will post dozens of pages of ramblings.  Some just cut and pasted from other sources, some appear to be the tortured thoughts purging publicly.  Either way they tend to overwhelm all forms of social media that has and honest desire for disclosure or even open debate and adult conversations.

I keep seeing this flood of data, usually meaningless, or maybe salted with a few tidbits, as a way to discourage further dialog's or discussions.

I am curious as to a useful method to filter out all the chaf?  Moderators used to work, but that is very unpopular, and I think the enemies of disclosure use that against us.

What are your thoughts and experiences?Confused

I did not get to evaluate the extent of this fact here, but I know very well how common it is.

A different question like the yours above is rarely answered, and therefore not discussed. Its interesting ..

the social media copy/paste behavior, to gain likes and be popular using what others have written is somewhat mechanized, so the personal words and experiences are suppressed (systematically).

I also think that many people are intimidated to defend a different opinion, affraid to not being well accepted by the group, and so they don't express themselves.

Pehaps, most people didn't find out how important it is for everyone to think and speak for themselves using their own words, even if they are not well written, just as media professionals and experts can do.

From all angles, the truth is always the same.

Even in the worst world lie, have a few of truth.

Good point.

I would elaborate more, but I'm afraid people won't "like" me and I'll lose my "followers".

But there is something to this.Surprised

I like the discussion so far and would add that maybe that is something to attribute less value - the reaction/opinion of the hive or that which makes the majority.  We only have our own experiences; convey that and we may yet reach one/some of the collective.
