18. You seem to have misinterpreted my question, in which I did not ask why people were

saying something nice about the article. I specifically asked why many of the responses seemed to be about the piece as opposed to the ideas therein. Look at any DU OP and compare the responses to of those to these. I can't find any other OP that has replies that seem to be evaluating the post as a post, as opposed to what it says.

The OP is talking about wealth inequality, specifically noting that “The bottom half of the world’s population owns the same as the richest 85 people in the world.” It goes on to say that in the past citizens have eventually responded to such inequality, sometimes in peaceful and other times in violent ways.

What is "This is very good" saying? That wealth inequality is good or that the fact that sometimes people respond violently and sometimes they don't is "good"? What is the "this" that the reply is calling good?

What exactly were you referring to as "Very well done?" in your reply? Or The way Kevin O'Leary's responded to the fact of wealth inequality?

Your "Very well done" reply, the "This is very good" reply, and even the "Well said", reply don't even go on to discuss any of the ideas, so the only thing they seem to comment on is the OP itself, as opposed to what it discusses.

Again, I can't find another DU OP with a preponderance of such responses that seem to refer to the post as opposed to what the post discusses.

As I said, I was curious. Ten days ago when I asked the question. Not a big deal, just something that piqued my curiosity on that day.
