Awesome article! Fucking sheeple! I have a few people I'll be sending this to. I really hate how much others alter their opinions based on what one or two popular people think. I've always felt is what caused them to make stupid decisions so often so this was quite interesting.

Based on this I'll probably make sure to always ask people for opinions in isolation in future.

Heh, I was just about to send the article in a group email, but on second thoughts I'll BCC it :)
