Clickbait headlines are getting out of control

I remember that rehab. That blue medication wasn’t too bad.

I disagree they can word it anyway they want . I don’t click many now its the quiet NFL time an these are not worth readying or watching . I really get ticked off when i do click an its BS . Now very seldom click. Not up to Nate or mods to select what is click bait unless its against the den rules. Fans just need to decide for themselves. Just My Opinion.

The “clickbait” outrage is towards articles that sound like something you want to read but is not about what you clicked on. The example Florio gave was “Steelers intentionally cut Super Bowl winning QB!!!” Then it was an article about a career backup QB nobody has heard of that the Steelers cut back in 2022. The “Super Bowl winning QB” is because he has been on the Chiefs practice squad for the past 2 seasons. He has only been active for 1 game in his career, and he didn’t play.

It gets worse every year. Now they have clickbait articles that don’t even try to find the thinnest thread to the truth. Youtube headlines are getting the same way. And for some reason social media sources are allowing fake quotes from people who are attributed to them but not qualified as spoof.

Sensationalism has been around since man was arranging his poo into letters of the first alphabet. Think of the people that you trust online or at least prefer to listen to. Do they frequently offer you Clickbait? My guess is that they don’t. And that’s why you return to those channels and outlets. Their headlines match up with what they’re going to talk about. As you poke around, you’ll find out pretty quickly the sites that are Clickbait and you just ugnore them ASAP, because you know it as being bullshit, or you block them. It sucks but welcome to the 21st century.

“Getting car jacked sucks but its a normal way of life. Just don’t go down that street anymore. Its weird that people actually take the time to complain about it.”

I don’t know… that line of thinking seems to be working for San Francisco. :person_shrugging:

English teachers must really hate Clickbait titles on Essays from students these days… who am I kidding. Kids don’t write essays anymore…Chat GPT writes the essays for them.
