I'm sorry, this is my first stab at this. But, isn't part of really
understanding memes the not filtering out of what you label bullshit?
If people just automatically filtered out what they thought was
bullshit, then it would be very hard to convince them of anything short
of complete media saturation. I'm just trying to figure out whether
this group is trying to promote openness towards information or
awareness of information.

Thanks for your time.
