  • Have you noticed?

    When people cannot refute your point in a discussion they respond in mostly four ways.

    #1 - They twist the point and argue against something not said (called strawmen)

    #2. - They bring up tangential or unrelated points (non sequiturs)

    #3. - They turn to personal attacks (ad hominems or shooting the messenger)

    #4. - They go and stir up things up elsewhere (cut and run)


    Since this is a friendly and close knit community, nothing like this goes on here. However you should be prepared for it in less civilized forums.

    Actually number three relates exactly to a point you were making earlier. Nice timing for you to have posted this considering I just updated my own thread to reflect that. Thank you Joe umbup:
