Rockwell's First Law of Internet Dynamics (ROFLID)


Recommended Posts

"Any internet discussion, left unmoderated, will expand into chaos, with an attractor equal to the fixed action pattern (FAP) of an apple maggot."

Public Park Syndrome

"A condition often seen on private internet forums in which extremely active participants experience a constantly increasing "sense of ownership," not unlike the elderly passing their days in public parks, eventually beginning to suffer from dementia and senility, and over time, becoming delusional in thinking that the parks are actually their own property. While theoretically reversible, extreme examples of this rare syndrome - with a rate of incidence of approximately 2-4% - tend to have a dismal prognosis, with the final stages often spiraling rapidly downward."
