This pretty much explains my experience with Bill’s websites and the trolls:
Poe’s Law is an Internet axiom which states that it is difficult to distinguish extremism from satire of extremism in online discussions unless the author clearly indicates his/her intent. This notion is most frequently observed with highly divisive discussion topics like religious fundamentalism and bipartisan politics.
Similar to Murphy’s Law, Poe’s Law concerns internet debates, particularly regarding religion or politics. … In other words, No matter how bizarre, outrageous, or just plain idiotic a parody of a Fundamentalist may seem, there will always be someone who cannot tell that it is a parody, having seen similar REAL ideas from real religious/political Fundamentalists.
Or in other words, some people’s (the trolls) ideas are so incredibly crapulent they actually appear as a parody to me because they are so far gone down the ‘Fundie Fake-Fascist’ path they just look like rambling idiots. How to tell an informant from a straight out plain Nutzi idiot? Impossible without studying them for months since the role of the informant is to do idiotic things to entrap other idiots.
Therefore I propose that Poe’s Law be bifurcated into two strands: Genuine idiots who accidentally parody themselves, and the informants who intentionally look like parodies (thus mimicking the idiots).
On that note logic dictates that if a petty nuisance is not an informant, they must be a god damned idiot of massive proportions.
We are best served by entertaining neither instance of Poe’s Law.
Can’t tell if this is satire? Lmao ; )
