When people who don’t know what they’re talking about write something that unquestionably proves their total lack of perception, they can count on the people who do know what they’re talking about to:
- laugh loudly, and then
- tell all their friends about it so they can all laugh even more, together.
- spreading the original stupidity to many unsuspecting eyes along the way, and thus
- increasing the visibility, legitimacy, and perceived popularity of the people who don’t know what they’re talking about.
Works every time.
