Is there more to them than "they're bullshit that are doomed to fail"?
I though we were talking about the suits where Dominion is suing a bunch of people for defamation, which are way more plausible than the typical defamation suits over political rhetoric.
Oh, I thought we were talking about the Republican-sphere lawsuits against Dominion to prove they threw the election or whatever.
Oh, I thought we were talking about the Jem'Hadar lawsuits against the Vorta over the distribution of White.
The opinions which are still persecuted strike the majority as so monstrous and immoral that the general principle of toleration cannot be held to apply to them. But this is exactly the same view as that which made possible the tortures of the Inquisition. - Bertrand Russell

On Monday, Twitter debuted a new feature that will allow users to add notes to other people's tweets. It's a user-generated fact-checking system, and it's called Birdwatch.
I see the potential for an amazing crossover between this and the "somebody come get this capitalism" thread.

People are making a lot of assumptions here. We don't know if the animals identify as cows, i.e. female. Not all animals that lactate are female. They could identify as bulls, or as non-bovinary.

I'm kinda wondering if they're gonna end up owning a minority stake in a cable news outlet.
