Hidden agendas are always a possibility on the internet.
I think there are many people who speak for love of their own voice, taken figuratively when it’s written word. Couple that with letting emotions dictate one’s words instead of logic, and voila, you have the many strange corners of the internet.
Are some of these bloggers idiots? No doubt. Are the people who read their crap idiots for assimilating the messaging into their own minds without critical thinking/filtering? Absolutely!
I don’t follow the blog underworld, am I in the minority?

Well I think you’ve hit a raw nerve here because these millennials have grown up talking shit on line with absolutely nothing to back it up. I think this kind of thing is more the norm than the exception.
Many are just shit-talking “influencers”, many paid to try and sway public opinion of these issues. Much like financial markets, the day has long gone when anyone can back up their play with any kind of hard assets, much less skill sets.
I think lots of them are lost in this on-line world where they fantasize about what they want to be, with no basis in reality or meat space to them.
I’d say it would be the rare case where anyone backed up their rhetoric on line.
I can count on one hand the people I know that actually are backing up what they say with action.
