The conclusion before the argument

Whenever a prominent figure in the community posts a piece of content, the first half of comments will be made reacting solely to the headline. In many cases, they come into the discussion with a pre-packaged argument about what they want to say.

This recently happened over the weekend with the reactions to Montecristo’s vlog about casting in esports and under riot with many coming in to talk about his arrogance and ego despite not having watched the video and blaming him for burning a bridge with Riot. It makes me wonder at what point a fan gives up conscious thought to preserve a status quo of some image in their minds.
