Reasons To Employ Geeks: Avoiding Weedlord Bonerhitler

OK, imagine you decide to livestream a petition from the internet, printing out the various people who support your position.  Supposedly.

If you tell your average Geek (or hell any internet-savvy person) they will tell you this is a dumb publicity stunt that will be trolled with stupid names.

The Republican Congressional Committee did not think about this, and thus you got signers like Weedlord Bonerhitler, which may be the most trolltastic name I’ve seen yet.

So another reminder of why people need you, my fellow geeks.  You would have been able to explain in a few seconds why this was a terrible idea.
