The Problem of Problem Solving

For the past 6 months I have been observing people in their natural environment, the Internet, to study how they respond to and resolve various problems that arise in their community. After crunching the numbers of my scientific findings using scientific methods I have come to the scientific conclusion that most people choose between two courses of action:

Choice A:
  1. Complain about it.
  2. Complain that no one is doing anything about it.
  3. Complain that there are too many people complaining.
  4. Contemplate doing something about it.
  5. Procrastinate.
  6. Actually do something about it.
99% of people never get past stage 3.
99.6% of people never get past stage 5.

Choice B:
  1. Ignore it.
