in thread What is "aggressive" argument?

You do realize that if you refute my right to express my free

Strawman. I never said you couldn't hold an opinion. Only that you had no right to try and enforce it upon me. I emphatically told you my position about 15 levels back--and that was a repeat of an earlier post--but you've continued to repeatedly badger me to accept your position. Which of us is the troll?

Anyway, so you basically just said you could care less about any credible evidence. Of course, based on past posts, it's a safe bet that you *would* use evidence that supported your position. And unfortunately, that leads me to conclude you have been trolling since your OP. The only thing I cannot figure out is if you are even aware of that. You would probably claim you do not care. But ironically you do care that in your mind you are being unjustly singled out. It's too bad you cannot connect the dots. Paraphrasing what I said earlier, I hope you enjoy your one man crusade against the world.

Isn't that entire paragraph a personal attack at least as bad as suggesting someone hadn't thought before posting?

And my crusade, if you care to term it that, isn't against the world. Just half a dozen would-be PM despots.


Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    With emphasis added by me:
    I refute that your judgements on these issues have any basis in definable, measurable fact. And even if they did, I refute your right to make them.
    -and-
    I never said you couldn't hold an opinion.
    Lets see if you can follow the logic here: You refute my my right to make a judgment. But a judgment is an opinion. Ergo, you refute my right to form an opinion!! Simple as that!

    So far no one has really come to your defense, and that's because it is well known that you do resort to flamewar style tactics. Now, you can refuse to believe that or consider that perfectly acceptable behavior and then decry how you are unjustly singled out by "half a dozen would-be PM despots." Or you could do a reality check and actually seriously consider whether these so-called would-be despots might actually have a point. But it's clear that will never happen. And because you refuse to consider that possibility, you are a troll who doesn't even realize that he is one! It's sad really. And that's why you are on the proverbial one man crusade vs. the world.

      No. You're the troll. Are we done yet?

      And that's why you are on the proverbial one man crusade

      S'funny, but from where I sit, you are now the one doing all the things you accuse me of doing, in contravention of all the "advice" you've offered been berating me with.

      You have become the crusader.

      Which is pretty much what this thread was about from day 1

        Are we done yet?
        Why is that up to me? If I reply then you have to??
