Clickbait retort

 
(+2, -2)
  [vote for,
against]

Every time someone says something, point at them and say “clickbait” with a tone of disdain in your voice and dismissively move away without saying another thing.

That’d liven up a party.

       //liven up a party// or kill it stone dead. One or the other.

       Hey there, stop dismissively walking away from me, [wjt], that's very rude.

       "clickbait"   

       A clickbait retort technology could be a web browser extension that submits a large number of requests for click- bait-y websites, effectively performing a crowdsourced denial-of-service attack against time-wasting content.

       "crowdsourced denial-of-service" turns this into a desirable browser plug-in.

       Likewise, when someone starts going on about how great their new iPhone/ car/ bicycle/ etc. is, just say "Adblock".

       [blissmiss] Are you sure I'm the target here? I suppose it depends if you like the idea or not.
wjt, Sep 02 2015
  

       Sure I'm sure. You said "clickbait". and then did what [Ian] said you would do. Right Mr. [wjt]?
blissmiss, Sep 02 2015
  

       [blissmiss] True, And on my return found no lively party thread,[pertinax] was right. The idea, which I tested, has proved to be lacking as I suspected.

       There's a trappist nit-picking party over at mine. But you have to bring your own trapp.
