What I have learned on the Internet.

4. As long as it conforms to their bias, prejudice, or ideology many will accept the most absurd story or claims as the gospel truth.

5. Critical thinking does not play a role in many Netzians thought processes.

6. The net has been a source of joy for those that previously thought they were alone in their paranoid delusions.

7. Many hold as credible Internet "news" sources that would make the most ardent practitioner of yellow journalism green with envy.

8. Many cannot distinguish between fact and opinion.

9. Ideology serves as an effective shield against reason and logic.

10. The dumber someone is the more they are convinced of their own intelligence.

    3. The same posters that shout, "innocent until proven guilty" are the same ones that routinely adjudicate officers guilty of various crimes based sorely on poorly written and often inaccurate news articles.

    4. Facts are irrelevant, all that really matters is how you feel about something.

    5. When the media does stories on guns, gun owners, etc they are stupid, biased and have an agenda.
    When they do a story about police actions they are an authoritative source and the gospel truth.

    If you cannot answer a rebuttal based on fact, logic, or reason. ignore it and pretend your position was not refuted.

    If your emotion laden rhetoric gets you a severe spanking by someone employing facts, logic and reason start whining and crying that you are a victim. Starts threads about how you were "Picked on" and jump into as many threads as possible to throw your little tantrum.
