This is an important point. The bumper sticker/headline era of politics doesn’t really care for the context that comes in the bodies of articles and invites the outrageous takes instead of the intelligent ones. The headlines are what are being shared and Clickhole beautifully exemplifies it in the comedic space.

We should gather more information, but the pointless speculation that some trolloperatives are using that those withdrawing their registrations have something to hide is partisan fear-mongering and an attempt to delegitimize our democracy that should be rejected by all.
