in thread What is "aggressive" argument?

Ok, so I am reneging on my promise to be done with this discussion, since, against my better judgement, I followed a link out of the CB out of curiosity. And I find that you are now putting words into my mouth that are the exact opposite of what I've explicitly said ("Just as my accusers believe they are making a value judgements on behalf of all monks."), willfully misrepresenting other things I've said ("By their standards, even just telling someone they are wrong--even if they are--is a 'personal attack'.") and even accusing me of sock-puppetry. Ok, while typing this I realised that it's possible you were referring to the other T. you've been exchanging views with recently, and you oh-so-cleverly hide behind plurals instead of talking about individuals, but at this point I think I'll take a page out of your book and blindly attribute all this to malice directed at my person. Which leaves me only one thing to say:

You, sir, are a lying, hypocritical cunt.

Now I'm done.


All dogma is stupid.

    1. As I said back up there, and you explicitly noted, you are not my only accuser--hence the plural.

      So, you adopting the mantle of the aggrieved at this point is, to use the colloquial, a bit previous.

    2. See? It is damn frustrating to have your words and intent wilfully misinterpreted isn't it?

      It tends to make you say things that you'd normally never say!

      Even if the misrepresentation is only perceived rather than actual, as in this case.

    ... willfully misrepresenting other things I've said ("By their standards, even just telling someone they are wrong--even if they are--is a 'personal attack'.")

    Re-read this thread. Did not at least one person in it suggest that "Telling someone they are wrong" is a personal attack?

    ... even accusing me of sock-puppetry. Ok, while typing this I realised that it's possible you were referring to the other T

    Possible? Even likely? Even absolutely, unmistakably, (oh! And correctly!), not accusing you of that.

    You've just confirmed everything I've been saying.


    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.
