Don't expect it to help but will post it anyway.
Not a chance. It's like politics. You aren't changing people's minds.

The majority of this country drinks Kool-aid, it's just different flavors at different times.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR MIND? Kosher switch? This is nothing but a scam, sham, trick, loophole or a hundred other things. One thing it is not is "kosher". This is not some CC T&C's you are trying to justify. Who do you think you are fooling here? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your creator? Good luck with that one.
Not a single like. I would say it is do to prejudice but the guy I guess is Jewish.

Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

I don't think he is Jewish. He is a shabbos goy worried about losing his job. This was before the advent of electric faucets.

Mine works great. Can't understand the touch ones. It is touch-less or none at all.

This warped, twisted logic is called "satire".  Today, we indicate that a text should be understood as satire by adding /s at the end.  For the past 300 years, satire was often indicated by using "A modest proposal" in the title, as Randomex wrote above.

This derives from a 1720s essay by Jonathan Swift, "A modest proposal For preventing the children of poor people in Ireland, from being a burden on their parents or country, and for making them beneficial to the publick." 

Swift begins with a sympathetic description of the poverty in which Irish children grow up, then explains how wealthy Englishmen can help them: Buy their babies.  "A young healthy child well nursed, is, at a year old, a most delicious nourishing and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled..."

Swift continues to write a serious essay with evidence to bolster his point, but it's obvious to any reader that he is using humor to make a point. 

Gerald Early is also using satirical humor to make his point.  The Chronicle of Higher Education asked college professors, administrators and staff to comment on whether colleges should reopen in the fall.   Professor Early's essay takes the usual concern about safety and turns it on its head, suggesting that unsafety is the very reason to reopen, so that wealthy white students could learn about the everyday feelings of African Americans. 

His intended audience would be familiar with Swift's essay, and he emphasizes that his proposal is meant satirically, both by using Swift's title, and by writing in his final sentence that he does not modestly propose such retribution, but that considering this is an "exercise in empathy."

  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I'm voting Biden (first time voting Dem in my life).

So, my 10 year old asks me, "Is Trump good for the Jews"?, I say "yes". He asks me "So why are you voting for Biden?".
I answered that Trump is good for the Jews, but America is even greater for the Jews, we've never been as free, and never had it as good as here, and Trump is hacking at the foundations of America.
