false dichotomies iz phun!
I never did any such thing Mister Reading Comprehension, i said it was first.
I even made a point about saying "everything else came after".
It's only puzzling if you do not first recognize that itwasn'tme is an absolute moron, and that he changed his stance numerous times.Quote:
, which is only one possible reading (and makes the second sentence very puzzling),
I assume you meant "gave"?Quote:
(b) given a poor thumbnail characterization of Azatdawn's replies,
(It's time you stopped giving me English lessons.)
No you are incorrect again, it's not a "thumbnail".
I was referring to one specific post, thus "argumenT".
No, i corrected you on the chronology and content, and those corrections stand.Quote:
and (c) misrepresented how what I argued related to their argument.
Your statement of Azatdawn's argument was garbled and semi-coherent. I was being generous when I described it as a poor thumbnail sketch of his position.
You didn't correct me on anything, since your first "correction" was full of dubious interpretation and your second was very badly expressed and irrelevant, since I was disagreeing with *both* of their positions.
Then you made some pinheaded comment about my argument that implied that I agreed with Azatdawn's position. This showed that you hadn't understand what I said.
Ordinarily, your posts are intelligent and, whether I agree with you or not, worth reading. The posts you've made replying to me in this thread have been sloppy and gratuitously insulting.
Good catch on "given" vs. "gave." My shame at missing that when I changed that sentence will weigh upon me, but I will try to carry on.
We will go to the Meriam and Webster's collegiate dictionary:
an erratic, unpredictable, or extravagant manifestation, action, or notion
I'd call his description of Hitler's coolness an "extravagant manifestation" of stupidity. This extravagant manifestation of stupid allows for multiple interpretations of his post.
Hell, I'd also say unpredictable because who'd think someone claiming, in another thread, that "Iif knows I'm not a bigot or a racist" gives props to one of the biggest bigoted racists of that time period.
Trust me, I make mistakes, but when it comes to something as complex and uncommon as vagary, you'd best err on the side of me being a semantic game playing asshole.
Why you think he made those cars "available"? So he could confiscate them when the war comes and have fast mobility at his disposal.
Oh and the Autobahn... check out where the first routs were built, and tell me that was not with the purpose to move troops fast to the front....
As I said in my initial post in this thread, if you don't know your facts, STFU.
I mentioned it before, if I wanted to play devils advocate I could because I know my facts, I chose not to...
You on the other hand, you opted to be a dick and you are making an ass of yourself while doing so.
I am not bashing you for your retarded opinion, I am in your face for being an idiot who doesn't have his facts straight and argues fallacies.
Is it really that easy to troll these days? I though it would take more than 'Hitler iz da greatest!! woot!!" to get people going.
