At Abu Muqawama, Atone, Crazy People, on the insanity that breaks out in the comments whenever Israel comes up.
Added: a comment from Fnord on another AM thread:
Btw, from the training book about PTSD wich I’m reaing up on due to work, I came across a “list of modes of incorrect thinking” that manifests in patients. It applies well to the internet as well, I think, and especially the Is/Pal discussion:
1) All or nothing thinking.
3) Mental filtering. (Means getting hung up one one detail, loss of perspective)
4) Rash conclusion-process
6) Emotional reasoning (I feel/believe)
7) Should/Could explanations and declarations.
My earlier post on this theme.
