took his ball and went home
You misquoting me in such a manner is flamebait, please refrain from doing so, that's a pretty big transgression in my book, considering our discourse and you really don't want it to end this way, you really don't.
It's incredible how sincere appraisal is now being warped into it's antithesis. All in the name of me refusing to further derail a thread about some crazy bitch running over her husband with facts and figures about an ideology that has nothing to do with the topic at hand. I've even offered to express my thoughts in more detail elsewhere, but you skipped over that part and continued to demand things with your arms flailing. At this point you resemble a child throwing a disproportionate tantrum over something that's easily resolved, just not in the way that he wants.

This criticism from me ignores appraisal and has everything to do with your defensive posturing when I remind you to do two simple things: back up your argument and be logical in breaking down a person's argument. However, at every turn, you chose to misquote me and respond with angry sentiment that completely ignores the logical mechanism of how to properly mount a logical argument.
This supposed extension of appraisal is another way of avoiding the fact that you are not using critical thinking to correct your methodology of argument. It's the easy way out. I'm driving home one simple point: "If you're going to say something, back it up with logic first, not emotion."
Let me ask you this, and be honest with yourself: What is your intent of you even entering this episode of discussion? Without sarcasm, I'm not trying to troll you in this question.
Sorry, but once again, your self-projection =/= me, so don't get too overly emotional with your retorts.
I'm sorry, but someone with such an unshakable sense of self-worth and self-importance should have scant need of the kind of insecurity pouring from your keyboard. I'm almost tempted to take back what I originally said about the quality of your posts, but that would be defiling what I believe is basically true, even if what you've had to say in this thread is revealing less amiable aspects of you. But maybe it would have been more healthy for your arrogance for me to have not even brought it up in an attempt to temper criticism with compliments, albe them both applicable.
Your trolling is deftly weaved, I'll give you that.
The quality of my posting looks different when it's not directed at you, but now that you're under scrutiny, you feel different about it, why? It's ego, criticism intend to shatter the ego that blocks critical thinking. I don't believe in tempering criticism with compliments, that borderlines on false sincerity, and is even more insulting than bluntness in my book.
What is offensive is not dissenting opinion, but the willful lack of critical thinking and rigor that allow mistakes into the premise that is then presented as the opinion itself.
