I've known politics is largely about status signaling (which hasn't caused any reduction of interest in issues which our society politicizes, however, just in elections and the like) since I started reading LW, but I just realized that reading LessWrong makes me feel superior (although I've noticed this before, but it seems hard to avoid) and it's fun to talk about. That's horrifying.
