This was way better than the post you were responding to (which will go unnamed). If everyone followed your well designed flow chart, Medium would lose 90% of its content.
Most of what I write falls evenly divided between humor at all costs or fact-based rants about things that are flat out wrong (but still funny). In either case, I think I have only sunk to the “If You Must” category a few times.
BTW, I love using flow charts and venn diagrams (not always mathematically correct according to my son the engineer) to make my absurd hot takes rise to the level of quasi-pseudo academia:

A FLOWCHART GUIDE TO NATIONAL MEDIA PROMINENCE
I rule, and you all suck, so stop f*cking whining

Keep up the good work!
