I've noticed an offshoot recently where if people think a subject is trivial (e.g. the late night talk show host battles), they'll post one of those "there are more important things going on, like Haiti." This was also posted in another forum about transit service cuts.
Now the situation in Haiti is certainly dire and I've donated what I can. But I fail to see how bringing it up in unrelated threads/forums dedicated to entertainment and transit helps the people living in Haiti. And if these folks are so concerned about Haiti, why are they "wasting' their time not only reading articles about entertainment and transit, but the comments and then formulating their own? What exactly do they think they are accomplishing?
Has anyone else noticed this trend? If so, how have you responded?
