Always question the terms of the discussion.
Sure it is.

Just like cyber bullying, or karen, or shill, etc etc.

This thread sucks because agreeing with anyone in it now looks like dogpiling.

Having said that, G***B read like BEs own Gwineth Paltrow most of the time.

Can we just concur? Or is 'concur' too close to 'agree'?

Tentatively point out that there appears to be more than a modicum of alignment between the views expressed by another poster, and our own?

Hang on, is dogpiling when you agree or disagree?

I think it doesn't matter, as long as more than one person is doing it. So by most of us agreeing that "dogpiling" as a term is a load of nonsense, we are dogpiling about dogpiling

Recap:

Conformity is bad for the forum. Non-conformity is just as bad. You should neither agree with those that you agree with nor disagree with those you disagree with. Any of these actions shall be deemed as bullying (aka dogpiling) and saying anything to anybody will be construed as victimization by somebody.

I don't think being ambivalent is allowed. If you don't join a tribe of your own accord, one will be assigned to you by The Committee.
