Doctorow’s Syndrome

The behaviour of those suffering from Doctorow’s Syndrome is characterized by the obsessive need to share information—regardless of the value of that information or the utility of sharing it—for the purpose of asserting their moral superiority.

Though rarely contagious, frequent exposure to patients suffering from Doctorow’s Syndrome may result in a reaction known as The Hobbes Effect.

Treatment consists of regular aural or written applications of the phrase, “shut the fuck up already, Cory.”
