I've suggested before on the list that a meme, to be accepted by an
individual, has to meet criteria that are, indeed, specific to the
individual, and include the individual's key beliefs and hierarchy of
values. While there are several ways that a meme can be crafted that will
enable it to be effective with large and unspecified groups of people, the
basic reality is that meme-acceptance is individualistic.
