AHHHHHHHH!!!! That makes sense ... I read too much into most things.
I'm pretty weak in the math department, and in fact I happen to be in the middle of a refresher course in basic algebra for the first time in two decades. I'm also compulsive about certain things, so I'm desperately wanting to put your equation into slope-intercept form, which is y=mx+b. To do this, I'd have to write your equation as y=x+2m. Assuming that what you describe as m is the same m that appears as the coefficient of x in slope-intercept form, and if the coefficient of x in your equation is 1, then m must = 1. In that case, your equation is really y=x+2. All this to say, I don't know what that means, but I really wish I did.
In my youth, news people would only get excited about weather unusual for their region. People in Chicago, where I live now, would got nuts for thunderstorms but be relatively calm about blizzards, for instance, while people in my native Kentucky would go nuts over an inch of snow while ignoring the occassional tornado. These days, though, everybody goes nuts for everything. There is never any reason to be calm, because whatever happens, the WORLD IS GOING TO END!!! And when it does end, you'll be screwed unless you have a gallon of milk in the fridge. A couple of summers ago, I swear, there were flashing road signs set up warning people that it was hot. We'ce all gone nuts.
