I saw that the other day. I think it's funny but I've also seen a few cases where it's true. I won't say that it's prevalent or even all that common, but I've known some poly people who were downright crazy. They generally found other crazy and formed a nice little cluster of crazy.

I feel that this link is worth posting, despite being satire, to some of the poly threads where a person thinks that opening their troubled marriage will help...

Really, this is a spot-on satire of the tendency of evolutionary psychology to shape itself to researchers' particular interests.

Here's a couple that might explore the possibility of a three-way screaming argument:
