No, I don't think that's OT at all. I think it goes right to the point. I say that the apparent explosion of bullshitters is related to the lack of personal communication skills which is also related to the increase of people using cell phones and computers to communicate.

Amish people don't shun technology such as telephones because they believe they are "evil." No, they simply believe that, if you want to talk to your neighbor, you should walk to his house and knock on his door. Maybe that is a bit of an extreme solution to the problem but I agree with the sentiment completely.
