@JeffersonSmith I love the clarity and morality in your answer. This should end the discussion. @PatrikGreene @MickPrice are just TNR paid to create polemic and get this thread somehow relevant on internet...

@TNR106646 @Andre Bartholomeu F I love the idea of being a "Dr." in a world which is full of doctors and empty of respect for others. There is a wonderful irony on wanting to be called Dr. I want to be Dr. too. Pls refer to me as Dr. André. Maybe this signals that anyone could look down on her, like saying - COME WITH RESPECT OR DONT COME. I like the idea. It enrages the entitled privileged elitists.

@MickPrice @Andre Bartholomeu F The whole point is that it does not matter and does not diminishes her. She was all about dignity and getting back her integrity and self-respect. She deserves the title as a self-learned and wonderful leader of a class. She could be a doctor or whatever she wanted although the same is not true for so many 'meritocratic' academic. The maintenance of the academic holinessness of titles per se is very elitist and as you pointed out 'fraudulent' as based on a false meritocratic system. There is a lot of irony in it: the privileged elitist 'Dr.' versus the wonderful human and genuine 'Dr.'.

I understand a bit about the need authors have to create polemic arguments but this article is as it mentioned about obsessions, a little obsessive about profits over people on the internet.

I don't click on Facebook ads and give less credit to sponsored posts...and take the most from Facebook without paying anything.

If it is to argue about the corporative focus on profit we would have to go back 1000 years and even PandoDaily would be guilty of the same sort of sins cause it is part of a grand system that is capitalism and corporate capitalism. Why entrepreneurs start business? For being financially independent and working for his motives. For that, entrepreneurs have to invent business models that work. You can sell cheap food (using agro-toxics), you can sell drugs that creates more bad than good, you can even have a blog that sells the traffic of readers of SS^&*( to Google or to promote "vested interest of shareholders

I assume that this conversation about Facebook is 'kind' of healthy although then Google and ALL the private companies should be put on the same trial.

I guess it would be impossible. 

The whole system is all about money and zero about consequences to the community, life and future life.

@KenG They like buying from people they know but when there is advantages (brought by econ of scale) will they buy? or they only stay friends while buying from the global supplier?

 @Mitzkahdrinnen 100% agree. I guess black hat tricks are double cut knife. Majority of "not-earned" success are very futile and miserable. My guess is that internet will make much difficult for "bad people and behaviors" cause reputation sticks in it and there is more surveillance. Yes, good reputation is hard and bad reputation is quick and easy. Twice true in web days.

 

I guess, we are still chasing for "new messias" in others. The ones who help us the most asking for nothing. Total altruistic organisms.

 

Surely, web will have monopolistic tyrants but the quest will be a never ending one.
