in thread Consider this: What makes a good node title?

We can can help them learn how the "big boys" work, huh? And we are able to avoid reinforcing their naivete, eh? All by retitling their nodes?

Ah, that's still not what I said, nor what I implied. You highlighted what wasn't there to begin with, and then knocked down that attitude. That is a straw man attack, which is a fallacy.

    Ah, that's still not what I said, nor what I implied.

    What you said was:

    "All we'd have done is reinforced their naivete, not helped them to learn how the big boys work."

    If that doesn't imply that we could somehow, if we only tried, "avoid reinforcing their naivete" or "help them learn how the 'big boys' work" then it doesn't say anything at all.

    So, which was it? We're you saying something contemptible? Or were you saying nothing at all?

    Feel free to explain what you were saying. Pointing fingers and chanting "fallacy" is no way to have a debate. Not a real one, at any rate. Support your statements, if they are tenable.

      Your direct quote is accurate. Your attempted distortion of what I said is inaccurate.

      If it is any consolation to you, had I said what you claim, I'd agree with you that it was a smug, arrogant comment.

        I know what I quoted was accurate...

        "All we'd have done is reinforced their naivete, not helped them to learn how the big boys work."
        That statement is, as it stands, a smug and arrogant statement. It is downright reprehensible, even. And you should be ashamed of yourself for making it.

        -sauoq
