Seriously.

Is there some sort of contest to create or find the most outrageous clickbaity article you can find on the internet so you can post it on this forum!?!?!?!

Underwater cities, video games destroying youths (that's an old AF one TBH), chocolate snorting.... Who comes up with this shit? Who takes it seriously?



Well.... If you can't fight 'em, join 'em.

Post your clickbaitiest stuff here.

I'll start it off:

CNN: "What's wrong with too many white men in one place"

Well, on this forum, if it's "Crazy ethnic/gender-paranoid protestors doing something outrageously stupid and attention-getting", the "who" is often the faithful Trump-Was-Right'ers, still fighting the war of 2016 to show that Leftwing Protestors Are the Barbarians At the Gate, even though the other supporters have just moved on to generic trolling by this point.

As for:



"Can you believe what Ariel the mermaid looks like today? She's not 'Little' anymore!"

(There's generally only ONE particular audience that goes into orgasms at the thought of old pop-culture icons from the 70's and 80's aging ungracefully, or child stars having self-destructive meltdowns as homeless drug-rehab twentysomethings, especially female ones...
That's usually what's so annoying about cheap-website clickbait.)

This is general chat. It's either nonsense posts, questions that people respond to and read none of the previous responses, clickbait, or politics. Pick your poison.

If I didn't know any better, I would think some people here are training to be journalists for Fox News.

Don't forget fake news that just sounded so good someone posted about it before verifying it, even when it was proven false before the thread was even started. Which could fall into any of the above categories, of course, but seems to be fairly frequently found in GD.

Of those poisons, personally I prefer the nonsense posts. At least they tend not to be created just to troll others. But that's just me, I tend not to read much of GD anyway unless something gets reported when I'm active. This thread title, though, figured it might be interesting.
