But a lot of assholes can make a bad culture worse.
Anyway, while searching for something else, I found the following note:
The Economics of Assholery
Axiom 1: As the probability of repeated interaction drops, so does the cost of being an asshole
Theorem 1: Assholery increases when populations go up, because of the reduction in repeated interactions.
I was probably thinking about trolls and thought I could do a fake economics type paper on trolls. (I can’t.)
