    sadly new scientist falls into that category fairly often, luckily they still discuss interesting topics which you can then go on to find out the real story behind.

    I love this bit:

    I saw this the other day, it's pretty great. Makes me sad how accurate it is though :(

    This is a reply to the article about the scientific paper

    In this sentence I will give my opinion like I'm some expert. It will lean strongly to one side of the issue. I will likely post my opinion without reading the paper in question, possibly without reading the entire article on the paper.

    In this post I will take a quote from your post out of context and attack your argument without actually addressing what you said.

    I take a small snippet of your dialogue and abject to it without establishing the context for your comment by reading the article linked to by the OP. I will rave on at length about how rude and ridiculous your comment is, going so far as to question your chances of fruitful motherhood.
    ;)

    I will take your post
    and arbitrarily break it down
    so I can reply to every nuance you have expressed
    line by line
    instead of replying in a cohesive paragraph.

    I will reply to your opening post as I either
    a) want to feel like I've added something worthy to the discussion
    or
    b) want to show that I too share your view on this scientific matter which I clearly dont understand but will attempt to appear I have read up on this topic.

    I honestly know that even though my reply will have no meaningful impact on what people think, I will come away from this post thinking I have achieved something and made people change their views with my own 1 minute Google search research which focused solely on a result which may only slightly support my position.
