Leaving aside the fact that the former sentence doesn't even really make sense...

People have a hard time taking discussions of the babble seriously for lots of reasons, one of which is admirably demonstrated by the latter sentence quoted. Social sin doesn't even get a look in. It doesn't need to.


But by using the term 'babble', I assume you are saying that you cannot take these issues seriously, nor do you expect to be taken seriously? I suppose it's a fair exchange.
