Is This Happening?

In the comments section of a particularly outrageous, over-the-top-PC article, someone suggested that the periodical in question was deliberately publishing articles it knew were ridiculous in order to attract outraged attention from the "other side," driving up hits and thus ad revenue. It would be a sort of reverse trolling.

Do you think that journals are actually doing this?

  1. That's what I thought about that article from a month or two ago about "you're a bad person if you send your kid to private school" or whatever the author argued. I couldn't believe anybody actually thought that made sense.

Old-fashioned excuse: "The dog ate my homework."

Modern excuse: "Dual-factor authentication ate my ability to do my homework."
