Today I learned on Car Throttle:
You can literally write write lies and still receive upvotes if what you wrote speaks agansit EVs. Great job, kids, great job…
Of course, if you write things that would even remotely speak for EVs, you receive downvotes. Even if they are absolutely true. Now, I don’t really bother with being up- or downvoted whatsoever usually, but that has to be a freaking joke. Really immature discussion culture on this website, seriously.
This is exactly what I have adressed in one of my blog posts a couple of months ago: it really doesn’t matter if what you write is even true by any means, as long as it goes with the mainstream opinion. This is not just immature, but absolutely toxic.
Head to this post’s comment section: https://www.carthrottle.com/post/zdyre5e/
I am writing facts - note: not opinions but actual true facts - and being downvoted into oblivion.
Alright, I don’t want to start any drama or something. I really don’t bother with the downvotes - I’d rather write what I want to write and be downvoted than being silenced by a horde of children who think that their opinion outweighs facts. It’s the principle that pisses me off.
