Fractal awfulness

The mathematical justification for the adage ‘never read the comments’ is the notion of ‘fractal awfulness’. This says that there exist arbitrarily petty people that have misguided or bigoted views about decreasingly small communities, and that their inflammatory language and style are all self-similar to each other.

It would be interesting to look for a scaling law between ‘number of people who have/identify as X’ and ‘number of people who have a negative view of people who have/identify as X’.
