in thread My favorite hoax was:

Hoaxes are only insulting if a) you are taken in by them and b) if you are vain enough to think they are explicitly aimed at injuring you personally.

How arrogantly fascist

They help us to question what we are told, not to take things at face value. If you still think that is a waste of time, well, life's a waste of time.

      fascist, unusually opressive

      arrogantly, with undue pride or self-importance

      deciding for others why hoaxes are insulting, or why life is worth living, arrogantly fascist, like the holocaust
