You are referring to overpresentation. There are ways of dealing with
that.

The Internet wasn't capable of surviving par lui-même. Something must pay
for it. As you ride for free, you don't.

It was more the loss of freedom that killed the internet. It's like
joining a club that portends to be like a Marxist Communist Fascist
group where you no longer have any freedom. What's the hook to get you
to stay?

That's karma

Democrats attack people for their politics, TRUMP says it's wrong and
he's like us, he gets attacked also.

That makes us just like TRUMP so, is it any wonder that the more people
the LEFTIST DEMOCRAT HATE GROUPS ALIENATE with their WOKE racist
policies and the more freedoms that the Democrats steal, the more people
will flock to follow TRUMP.
