LCD, or Lowest Common Denominator, literally means the lowest number that you can divide a fraction by (e.g. 40/80 is equal to 1/2, thus 2 is the LCD) but LCD has taken on a new meaning in recent years, and basically means dumbing down everything to "reach" the dumbest people, which also happen to be the large majority of people in every society.

It's laziness essentially. Marketers, website admin people, journalists, entertainers, politicians, NASCAR advertisers they've all jumped on the LCD bandwagon. Rather than trying to raise the tone and strive for some "consciousness raising" among friends, acquaintances and fellow travelers, society's leaders now prefer the lazy LCD approach, and you get what we see here all around us -- dumbing down, ZERO constructive dialog, no vision and just mindless bullshit.

Ideally, NO...but in actual fact, YES many of the threads do eventually degenerate to that level.

Is that the answer you were hoping for?

that's right - don't let fact get in the way of showing just your side of the story -

www.cyberlearning.org/K-8math.asp

It is a rather good course and pays particular attention to explaining the difference between LCD's and of course reductions.

And how about you find someone else to obsess over, to fixate on and act like a stalker to. Stalkers are really the saddest members of any society.

You see, there is always a point at which any thread begins to deteriorate to the LCD level and it always begins with witless, personal insults and an attempt to make others' points of view seem less than credible. You obviously can't deal with a normal discussion where people just debate/discuss the issues, so scoot on back to your little cave and leave me alone. I'm totally serious. DO NOT respond to anything I post on this site ever again. Just forget about me, and move on to another fixation, thanks.
