Either this post and the article referenced was perfect or people just aren't engaging with the contents of the posts here like they used to.

When I posted this article originally, there was a lively discussion here that led me to summarize some of the very good and interesting points made back then in a follow-up post.

Now, in the wake of a disaster caused by the problem this article is addressing, we don't have the time on this network anymore to engage with ideas beyond a mere press of a button?

I'm not accussing anyone who boosted this or favorited this individually - if I was I'd have to find myself guilty as well. It is just a sorry development to me - perhaps there is just too much "content" on here by now for anyone to meaningfully and critically engage with any single piece of it.
