Good points all. I think most of the socnet stuff is water cooler talk. But, when you are dealing with lawyers…
It’s not just the temporal aspect of something, but also it intent.
I may focus on an aspect of a topic to engage you, but focus on another aspect to engage someone else. Or I may be playing devil’s advocate when I assert something. The people “in on it” know the context and intent. Someone 10 minutes later won’t. So, how does that kind of thing play out in history? Court? Do we care that Thomas Jefferson and Albert Gallatin had a running joke about Alexander Hamilton’s sex life? (I don’t know if they did…but they could have…)
