I've seen so many stupid, false, and downright idiotic posts on ET since I joined, that I thought it might be entertaining and instructive to collect and share them in one thread. I'll just post from time to time whenever something comes up which I consider particularly moronic. I'm not here to mock people I disagree with - reasonable people often hold different views, after all - but rather to point out the worst of the worst, the real howlers, the most misleading, stupid, and flat out *wrong* comments that sometimes pass for advice on these forums. Since this is a journal, I do not want people coming on to dispute the "stupidities" - however I welcome suggestions of other "stupid posts" that have been made, either on ET (preferably) or in the general media (if you can find particularly egregious examples). I will refrain from commenting on why I think each particular post is really stupid. Hopefully the idiocy will be self-evident to anyone with half a brain.
