Doesn't it?

3. Only to those prone to logical fallacies.

Let me know if you'd like some links to resources on logic.

4. You have zero room to speak on the subject.

Your posts demonstrate this clearly.

9. I do apologize,

I was thinking of another poster whose ID begins with T and contains a letter V.

I offer a full retraction.

You don't see this kind of thing here often, and I compliment your honesty and character.

10. Why?

None of that has anything whatsoever to do with the point of my post, which was the hasty generalization fallacy in the OP.

FWIW, although I'm certainly rather far left by most rational standards, I am most emphatically NOT an open borders advocate. I have major issues with the entire sanctuary city concept. I have no problem granting asylum to _legitimate_ applicants, but I insist on a proper application process with vetting. In fact, I strongly advocate meticulous vetting for _all_ immigration applicants AND I favor deportation for people who broke the law when immigrating (and prison for repeat offenders). I haven't been supporting the wall because I remain unconvinced of its efficacy, not because I disagree with the notion of a secure border.

The OP would have you believe, I suspect, that because I'm a leftist, I don't hold such positions. That was the point of my response: a comment on that faulty, logically fallacious statement.

14. You misunderstand the point of the OP.

"The OP would have you believe, I suspect, that because I'm a leftist, I don't hold such positions. That was the point of my response: a comment on that faulty, logically fallacious statement."

Your suspicions are incorrect.

You've focused in on what the statement says, but the reason I made it made went right over your head.

16. Your "explanation" and the actual statement made are at odds.

Your motivation for making it doesn't interest me in the least. Just because another poster, who happens to hold opposing political view to yours, makes an elementary error in logic doesn't mean you should, too. And I trust you understand most posters here don't read every post on the board. Context...

17. No, they really aren't.

"Your motivation for making it doesn't interest me in the least."

Thats your impediment.


"Just because another poster, who happens to hold opposing political view to yours, makes an elementary error in logic doesn't mean you should, too."

I *DIDN'T* make an error in logic, YOU made an error in understanding in coming to the conclusion that I *MEANT* the faulty logic contained in the OP as genuine logic.



As I tried to explain, it wasn't meant that way.

19. You're being absurd

You throw out what is, on the basis of the text alone, a headline that is unequivocally an obvious logical error. It's presented with ZERO contextual explanation (that is, no connection to the post you now claim you were parodying or any other explanation of your actual intent.). Then you criticize _me_ for not being a mind reader or someone who reads every post on the board? Laughable...

20. No, you are being absurd.

"You throw out what is, on the basis of the text alone, a headline that is unequivocally an obvious logical error. "

Indeed, and I did it quite obviously and deliberately.


"It's presented with ZERO contextual explanation (that is, no connection to the post you now claim you were parodying or any other explanation of your actual intent.)."

While I provided no explanation of a connection, a connection there is. Go to the front page. There were two OPs between this one and the one I linked.

"Then you criticize _me_ for not being a mind reader or someone who reads every post on the board?"

Unless you're ABOVE being told that you're incorrect, I did not criticize you for not being a mind reader.

21. If someone has to go to a completely different page to understand your intended meaning...

...then that lack of understanding falls on _you_, sparky. Learn to write better.

I'm sorry* you're butthurt over being called out on either shitty logic or shitty writing (at this point, I couldn't care less which, as I've pretty much dismissed you as a poster worth attempting a substantive conversation with) and react by attacking the person that pointed it out. Y'all have a nice life, m'kay?

* Okay, that was a fib: I'm not remotely sorry.

22. If you weren't around for it at the time, you really weren't an intended recipient per se.

I'm sorry* you can't figure out whats what on your own and need to be told, and are now having an angry fit over what amounts to nothing.

*Okay, that was a fib: I'm not remotely sorry, its your problem not mine.
