They don't want to know my opinion.

We could probably divine it somehow.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

RE: New rule regarding "clickbait".
I HIGHLY applaud this. I don't come around here as much as I used to but it's gotten to the point that when I do, I ignore at least half the threads because they have vague titles. This will be a welcome improvement.

I find the name of this annoying practice (never knew it had one) ironic because it never baited me. I've always been less-inclined to click on a thread if I don't know what it's about.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

RE: New rule regarding "clickbait".
I think the only quibble for me is the fact it requires multiple violations from the same person (obviously) before punishment happens.

Which makes sense because punishment after one or two violations is rather harsh.

But in my experience the vast quantity of clickbait threads is multiple people doing it occasionally rather than a few people doing it a lot.

But really I can't think of any alternative.

At least if someone does it repeatedly then they'll have to stop or be punished.
