I understand your point, and I know a quick google search might show the same. But are we really considering an imgur link to a picture of a graph that i could make with excel and no other links leading to hard data, a source that we take seriously?

I think people are much more likely to look at an image than read a link, but anyway.

It's interesting to me that people have extremely strong views on something which if they googled it for 20 seconds they would know is wrong.

People prefer anger over facts these days.

It's happening a lot these days. Emotion over common sense, which means no real solutions for problems are found, just what makes people feel better.
