Biography

I like flags - probably a little more than is normal.
My wife is way too good for me but I played the long game and wore her down.
She didn't know about the flags til after.

What Fallacy is this?
2018-03-27 03:10:57
Thanks. No I'm specifically talking about instances where one side of the debate is compared to the other side of the debate.

Another example would be:

@admin you mentioned doing something with the character count right?
On my PC and on my Phone, it shows the character count as "NaN remaining" regardless of how many are actually remaining....

Looks great on the phone!
Love the fact I can jump straight to my notifications now. The other way was quite convoluted.
What was your first debate like?
2018-02-15 12:46:15
But then I learned that debate is WAY more about crafting a clear narrative than it is about actually being technically correct.

Should say, *seems to be*. It's not like I'm an expert!
What was your first debate like?
2018-02-15 12:43:31
My first proper debate was on here. My opponent forfeited both of my first debates so the one I count as my first was against admin and was an "is god real" type religious debate.

Hey @admin apparently this was a legit message, and I wasn't supposed to publicly announce anything - much less repost the entire message.

Why I Don't Comment Often
2016-05-27 05:53:34
You're right, we don't disagree.

I was saying that I understand where Admin may have been coming from, but the precedent set is not a good one. I 100% agree wth you, it's the message sent to onlookers...

2016-05-26 21:38:42

2016-05-14 00:42:36
Yeah, you can call it deterrence if you like. It doesn't matter. That's still fear, you're saying, "Be peaceful or else."

I would argue that that is not peace. It might LOOK like peace,...
