"Source-based debunking attempts to reduce the
credibility of conspiracy theorists whereas empathy
based debunkings compassionately call attention to
the targets of conspiracy theories. A source-based
debunking that ridiculed believers of lizard men was
found to be as effective as a fact-based debunking.
In contrast, an empathy-based debunking of
antiSemitic conspiracy theories that argued that Jews
today face similar persecution as early Christians was
unsuccessful."

Mock conspiracy theorists for the common good.  :lulz:

Good to know that a trend I had perceived but was uncertain of is in fact true.

No one who targets a persecuted group gives a fuck about those people. The only way to adjust their beliefs is to make them regret them.

I fundamentally disagree, if you invest enough emotional resources to the rabid rat, you will find that deep down it only needed love.

So, Jenn just got carted off by the EMTs to the cardiac ward.

And due to the plague, I can't be with her.

Just heard from her.

She's awake & alert, not comfortable, and while they are not ruling out a heart attack, there is no detectable damage.

Waiting on enzyme tests.

Definitely putting my hopes in the pool here. Good outcomes only.

Good luck. No obvious damage sounds positive.
