Since this thread has a European theme, I would recommend the series “Poldark” to anyone interested. There’s a character named George Warleggen who reminds me a lot of a certain poster hereabouts... not naming names.

Still don’t know who you’re talking to Jockey. You just post things and it’s unclear to whom you’re talking. A little like a street preacher, just shouting out to nobody in particular. You should work on that. I was hoping you would catch a clue when I posted lol above with no reference. I was loling a post of Onesy’s up there and you assumed I was laughing at you. Tsk... you still didn’t get the hint. One can’t be subtle when you’re involved, obviously. Sledgehammer doesn’t even work most of the time.

Lesson learned on this thread is that some people drunk-post even sober, and drinking only makes it worse.........

I'll pass. Next.

So, here’s a quiz. Winner gets a fabulous prize. Who posted on this very thread.
“Yeah, I expect you to back up your opinions.”
... and also posted, also on this very thread, within less than twenty four hours,
“Some of my arguments are based on my personal opinion, not able to be backed up externally”

Lmao...

As you usually, you are misrepresenting what I said.

I said I expect you to back up your claims with proof.

If it's an opinion, sometimes it can be backed up, sometimes it can't. If it's the latter, don't try to pass if off as a fact. Sometimes opinions are no more than opinions.

I know this will go right over your head so I don't even know why I'm trying.

Lmao... I didn’t name you, but I did copy and paste your exact comments. They’re right back there for anyone to see. This is hilarious.

Well, I guess I did say exactly that in post #224

I know a nuanced discussion is beyond you. I should have been more clear.

I should have said "I expect you to back up your claims with facts". Better?

Like I said, there is a time and place for opinions:

-Blue is a better color than red. That's an opinion. No way to prove that or disprove that either.

-Liberals don't care about the law. Also an opinion. No way to prove that or disprove that either.

-Illegal immigration is a burden on the country. More of a claim. Studies, statistics can be used to argue either side.


See the difference?

Oh, I get it, not the words of someone talking out of his ass, contradicting himself, arrogantly trying to make all the rules whatever he says they are, it’s “nuanced”...

Lol.

And I've since clarified my statement.

I suggest you take a look this fallacy: argument from incredulity (also known as argument from personal belief or argument from personal conviction)

Yeah, people who talk out of both sides of their mouths have to do a lot of that “clarifying”, I’ve noticed.

Not really. That post wasn't bickering. And I wasn't talking 1:1 to you.

I am doing both now though with this sentence, see the difference?

Usually a peer review happens prior to publishing

Even in my error, I've clarified and expounded on my opinion.

Which is all it was, an opinion.
