How connable are you? How good would you be at starting a conspiracy theory? How many likes can you score with your manipulative language? A short online game to demonstrate how CoVid misinformation whizzes round the internet.

I lost my way as it didn't make sense to me at all ? Stupid.

No EllanVannin ...not stupid. You must be incredibly genuine in nature.

EllanVannin Good news! It just proves you'll never make a scammer. Look out for Mr VQ though.
