  • Apr 4 2013: Well I was going to join this conversation, but I think i'll keep waiting cause the quality is very poor. You've got one logical guy who knows what logical fallacies are (John Hoopes), and the rest of you are just making fallacies left and right degrading the conversation to a schoolyard level. Good effort John, but I think these specific people are dug in too deep to get out. Might be a good time to find another conversation.
    • Apr 4 2013: Well it's a good job you know which conversation you're in this time and have sussed out who agrees with you. I expect it helps that there's only the one relevant thread open now. Two can be so confusing.
    • Apr 4 2013: Leroy while I appreciated those are your sentiments, I just would like to point out to you reality reveals these conversations have generated record interest. There is your logical fallacy.

      Apr 4 2013: damn, you didn't want to join, but failed :)
    • Apr 4 2013: I think you joined the conversation just by announcing, in the conversation, that you didn't want to join the conversation. You also joined the conversation a few minutes previously when you posted a comment that had little to do with anything actually being discussed. Unclear, then, why you feel the need to start off with such off topic commentary, and then follow it up with obvious falsehoods, and then follow that up with some general insults directed at everyone you disagree with. Exactly as you did on the previous conversations.
