Thanks to another redditor, an xkcd comic, and the SCP Foundation, I have had a vision of an internet that is a lot more fun, and way less frustrating.Instead of arguing, reasoning or trying in any way to educate, change or even reason with the batshit crazy online, just try to one up them.https://xkcd.com/966/http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-3477Instead of trying to reason with nutjobs, you make their lunacy seem tame by comparison. If someone tells you the moon landing was faked, the correct response is "You believe in the moon?! Jesus man, you are so delusional. There is no moon."Or if someone is promoting the flat earth, you laugh at that, you start explaining why the earth is actually a cube. (or a hot dog shape, or whatever the craziest shit you can come up with)Then go after them for being so stupid to not believe in the hotdog earth.There are several threads here that could benefit from this approach.
"You believe in the moon?! Jesus man, you are so delusional. There is no moon."
It doesn't work if you are the lunatic though
