    I don't see why. Memes *are* ideas that spread beyond the person who thought them up. Good idea, bad idea, or inaccurate idea, they are still memes if they are being communicated and spread to new people.

    Memes and ideas are not, in themselves, good or bad except in how useful they are in comparison with each other to the user. It's what they are used for and by whom that makes them good or bad to society as a whole. IMHO.
