We are the Q internet conspiracy
I am a reader of the Q stuff.
I started being skeptical when I started seeing folks quoting chapter and verse of the posts. It simply made me uncomfortable.
That said, a cult has its followers give up their identity for the cult leader. For Walking Dead fans, it is the I am Negan thing. That is not happening with Q.
The whole intent of the Q group is to do th research and connect dots. This is where lots of people get derailed. Connecting dots is difficult without context. I see a lot of talk that simply spins out of control because of this. People are connecting A to D without the context of B or C.
So, its interesting and fun to watch. But you need to keep your hands firmly on the sides of the rabbit hole to keep from being pulled too deeply.
