In speech I find it difficult to not get angry at times with people I see as asshats. In a typing format it is much easier to remain calm cool and keep my thoughts together. If some one acts out against you, and you retaliate things go south very fast, if you make a calm reasoned reply, then that begins to shake the cobwebs out of the person in some cases.
In my way of thinking misinformation is any information that goes against the current narrative set by people. To a flat earther, anyone presenting information that the earth is round is spreading misinformation. The divisions have been made, and the government and other groups and organizations are making the divides even smaller, soon it will be back to that experiment with blue eyed and brown eyed people.
