This phrase is used in tribute to Fravia+ of ye olde website "searchlores" on which he explained in great detail how to get the most out of the internet and resist the tendency to be mislead or funneled into a certain worldview by search engines. Ah, the good old days... That was even before so-called "social media" started using artificial intelligence algorithms, unwittingly funneling us humans into filter bubbles, echo chambers, and other such psychological feedback loops.
