I devised this theory after encountering (just now, in my Facebook feed) "Donald Trump gets into Twitter war with Modern Family writer—is obliterated" — which goes to a Daily Kos article from last summer that ends with "A reader brought to my attention that this twitter battle happened 2 years ago!"
My comment at Facebook:
Should we be promoting stories with clickbait headlines like "is obliterated"? Also, that's some ugly eliminationisticness, "obliterated." If we're supposed to loathe Trump for his brutish language, are we not hypocritical to jump at "obliterated"?I'm quoting myself here because I like to use my civility bullshit tag.
