    An analogy:
    Crime is down, statistically. But, the reporting of any & all crime is way, way up.
    One could make the same argument about racism and poverty, but that sure doesn't stop people from losing their shit over it.

    OK, that was a total tangent that was too good to pass up, but your main point is right on ... people are just under a microscope like never before, and on top of that everyone watching wants to make a huge deal out of everything even if it's really not.

    Now, there's the additional question of whether rhat really applies to people who are voluntarily seeking out attention by posting on social media ... seems lots of people really like the attention-getting part of it but don't understand you are also voluntarily asking for extra scrutiny, even if you are not a public figure.
    An empty victory is a victory nonetheless.

    Great post.

    My response is simple... millennials.

    ... and that response is pretty much a 600-foot walk-off home run.
