Why does Lidditism™ correlate with kill-filing announcements?
The careful observer of rec.bicycles.tech will notice that almost all of
those who announce that they are using kill-files on particular posters
are also in the Liddite™ camp. The observer will also note that these
kill-filers are prone to posting (incorrect) authoritarian announcements
of opinion on the effectiveness of bicycle foam hats as fact. The
fervor with which they proclaim their beliefs in expanded polystyrene
hats, makes clear that this is a matter of faith, and this Liddite™
fundamentalism leads them to reject facts to the contrary. Then it is
no wonder that they find the presentation of logical arguments against
Lidditism™ to be insulting, so they cover their eyes with a kill-file to
avoid viewing "heathen" beliefs. The announcement of the kill-filing
serves to bond them to their fellow Liddite™ believers, while excluding
the "heathens" from the clique.
