If there is a skills shortage, that means wages are not rising sufficiently. Nobody here has taken Econ 101, apparently.

99% of the useless noise in commentariat debates about controversial topics is *distraction* which attempts to censor descriptions/observations/facts by simply changing the topic to a whataboutism or some other kind of distraction.

A wiki that gave a place for every point to be made would fundamentally solve this censor-by-distraction problem on internet forum debates. It would have to be refuted or confirmed on its own merits, without changing the topic with a distraction, thereby fixing 99% of the problems arising from bias.
