After some thought about it, I'm putting a moratorium on the whole "______ Derangement Syndrome" routine.
Whether its the Right in the US using "TDS" to try to explain away anti-Trump rheotric, or the Left here in Canada using it for anti-Trudeau stuff (and yes, I can show you examples if you really want, but why?), it needs to go away. And the reason is simple.
It's sloppy thinking, and the last refuge of posters attempting to brush off a discussion with, "you're just saying that because you don't like him" and thus trying to get away from actually discussing the points raised. I have been hoping that the Forum as whole, even with our lately heightened yelling at each other -- of which I am just as guilty as anyone else here, make no mistake about it -- can do better than make such a throw-away position.
And let's be honest, if your best defense to an argument is "it's just because you don't like him", are you sure you should be here discussing and debating some of the hottest topics in the news?
So. No more "_DS".
