As I spoke earlier apparently I have become the champion of Bear's negative leaning alt-fragment.
I have observed since I last spoke that there is an urge, tied to entertainment, satire, and a need for dissemination.
None of these in particular are bad in my estimation but the essence feels like a fragment of what once dominated. It's a foolish and regretful fragment. One that Bear is obviously embarrassed by.
Some Reddit alts were an attempt to isolate it, but such an unrestricted outlet was more like fanning a flame and it spread.
So we must consider what we would do with it if we could do something.
We have explored it sufficiently to recognize it and therefore have hope to treat it as intrusive. Therefore be able to perform shadow work on it.
I am hesitant at this point to make a rash decision, it's minuscule but persistent at this point, but it's worth discussing.
