Can Social Software lead to poor thinking as easily as not?

Interesting pov on “social software” from Don Park.” Link via Scripting News.

A disturbing example of how societies can fragment and balkanize and take on irrational ideas. While I have enjoyed the successes of some high-flying communities over the years (CompuServe’s IBMVENDB, FoxForum and currently MSDevApps, Ed Leafe’s ProFox list), I have also see communities where the ethos never fully developed or the ground rules were never clear.
