According to the experts we should be practicing social distancing during this current
pandemic. Group gatherings should be for no more than 10 people at a time (avg recommendation) and smaller is better. Right? Right.
But here on CF popular threads like this one routinely draw 30, 40, 50 or more people - all simultaneously co-mingling! Moreover, some members are known to routinely, blatently and willfully spread infectious, sometimes even debilitating, laughter. While it's been said that laughter is the best medicine the advice is naive, as it does nothing regarding knock-on effects such as treating vunerable keyboards ruined by through-the-nose spurted coffee. Shocking, really.
Social media sites are social gathering places that ignore, well, ignore lots of stuff, actually. Even "The Mods" can't always keep things in check. (Please don't remove this post! This isn't forbidden critisism of the mods! Aw.... Give me a break.)
Where was I? Oh, yeah - social gathering vs social distancing on social media platforms. There's gotta be a joke in there. Somewhere. Come, child. Let us delve into the mysteries shrouded within the mystical confines of the world wide web. To search! Oh, that hidden treasures to uncover anew.
I need a new hobby.
