    I've seen this before and it got a chuckle out of me, but, gotta admit, not everyone responds to fame, intense scrutiny and criticism the same way. ;P

    Best, because very reflectively written, post in this thread.
    I discussed this issue with my students and they conclude that's really hard to identify "the sides" in this game, though everybody wants to have clear fractions. Despite this is a human behaviour, it's not very reflective, what socially motivated outrage and engagement indeed should be.

    I don't know if this has been posted yet, but Charlie Brooker sums it all up IMO:

    I actually had an argument with my Aunt and ex-girlfriend over the KONY 2012 video when it was just gaining mass attention. I didn't bother trying to convince them any further that there's probably more than meets the eye. Shortly afterwards, the whole public masturbation fiasco hit the news and I just shook my head at the two of them.

    Lol the Kony campaign night was an epic fail in my town. I saw a total of one half ripped poster a few blocks from here.
