I write:

Shrewd analysis from "cian" and "negative potential" both.

The only problem with marginalizing Platypus by refusing to play ball with them, is that once they disappear, we'll no longer be able to perversely enjoy their lame contrarian iconoclasm. I mean, from a sociological point of view, I like having Frank Furedi sorts on the scene to keep things from getting too monochromatic. It's only when they come armed with large gangs of rabid YouTube commenters that the real drawbacks begin to surface.
