There needs to be some kind of standardized hierarchical
quantification of disregard.
so for instance:
NT flying fuck
BT two shits

||What about a scale of fishbones and croissants, maybe +/- 2.5 of each?
||I don't know, in the case of HB ideas i usually think of there
levels of disregard within the 0 fishbones, 0 croissants
category. So the ultimate divestment would be 0
fishbones, 0 croissants, 0 annos, 10 paragraph idea and
extensive linking, all by the author. That would be
something like saying, "the HB doesn't give a flying fuck
through a rolling
donut about your idea". Whereas, 0 fishbones, 0 croissants,
but multiple annos -- but all the annos are on a complete
tangent and devolve into flaming -- would be something
less strong like, "HB doesn't give a rat's ass about your idea.
Whereas, any thing with multiple fishbones I would not say
is in the category of not having a fuck or a shit or a rat's ass
given about it, since it has inspired energy of some kind,
and so wouldn't indicate divestment as much as it would
repulsion, I would say, or revulsion, or ire.
||This regularised scale of indifference should be described as a mehtric.
||// a mehtric // +
The idea, not not much. If you want a precision, rate it on a scale of 0 to 100. Language is used for better reasons than precise quantification, and I don't want to fear that by using a phrase that fits the context that I will be implying some precise level of disregard.
