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.
