Boundary Effects

The Guardian’s article forum that I commented on in my last post has become one of the longest lasting exchanges so far in the online conduct of the recent phase of the Scots’ independence debate.

I’m actually quite astonished by the dangerous polarisation of attitudes that forum trolling seems to encourage. After years and years of studious lurking in such fora I’ve felt impelled to post  again, that’s twice in as many days.

And, as #8 on the Quit Whining Scotsman conversation, I made my hat-trick. But I’m not sure this is good for my health.

Boundaries cause boundary effects and unintended consequences; I wonder if anyone can really see where all this is heading?
