We’ve spent some time talking about Mark Edwards’ Sylvia Browne stunt and that bra color Facebook thing. Seems most people agree that these are ridiculous stunts and pretty useless at best, and annoying and offensive at worst.
But supporters of these things (performances? campaigns? stunts? hoaxes?), like Mark Edwards himself, say that at least he/they did something… even if they left the rest of us baffled as to what that something was and what it was supposed to do. If nothing else, they created a buzz and heated some tempers.
Is doing something, anything at all, always better than doing nothing? Was doing something better than doing nothing in these cases?
