Go back to before cefire started obfuscating things with an irrelevant philosophy class. I addressed your OP. I think you're extrapolating something that is a local problem with a specific person or group of people.

I'm trying to express that I believe, in general, those people are fewer and further between on average than you have been experiencing lately. From my experience, the majority of people using that hashtag are affecting their community positively. Furthermore I think it's too easy/convenient to just say they're basically crying for attention (I'm paraphrasing/summarizing there) just because you disagree with them.

In short - your argument throws baby out with the bath water.

Alrighty, PMantle might be right.

I agree w/#9's reasonable comment. Do your thing while trying not to mislead self or others. My apologies for the caustic comments (and apparently 'obfuscating' by asking for some precision in the discussion).

Until next month when this topic comes up again...
