There are lots of news stories out there which are so stupid you think to yourself: why is this news? I used to think this but nowadays I think the most noble thing you can do is ignore it. Some things are so contemptable they are beneath acknowledgement, like Piers Morgan. There’s a good bit of general advice I learned from youtube: do not feed the trolls. Even if they are owned by News International. Also, slashdot has lots of interesting stories that most media ignore. Why not follow them?
