I would like to hear why you think I'm hypocritical and/or evasive. I might be able to get that extra -1 as a result. Who knows?

Meh, I would tell you why, but then you would feel impelled to defend yourself and that would lead to more debate, which I'm really just not that interested in on this topic anymore. ClydeLee's latest post mostly covers it anyway.

No, I don't think you could earn the extra -1, unless you went Taq on me (he has a -2 from me).

Fair enough, Tourettes is a plonker.

You are a pompous ass about it.

LOL



from what others have said.......a few of us just wonder WHY.... why be a pompous ass about it? Isn't the mastery of topics enough? You may know more about something than someone else............groovy. You really don't have to shove someone's face down in the mud with that knowledge. It really does take away from the level of intellect perhaps we'd rather see in you. Maybe you're just so smart it's how you keep yourself humble in a way??
Meh - who knows?
(I know I know it's lame for me to diagnose you this way.........stupid stupid I know)


*shrug*








Just a note from the club of those you hate-on: we are the proud, the forum enjoy-ees, and the many

It seems that being a "pompous ass" is a very subjective assessment because that charge was made against Maklelan and I did not think he was being a "pompous ass". He actually assumed much more of his audience than he should have and that resulted in many misunderstandings. That he actually assumed more than he should have about his audience suggests that he wasn't trying to be condescending. So despite his clear expertise, intellect and good-faith he still received vitriol from the cheap seats. This would seem to cast doubt on your analysis.

Look at Maklelan's ratings to see there were people beside me that were favourably disposed towards him.

I think Maklelan's posts were not assessed on their own merits but rather through a prejudicial filter. He was labelled as an out-group member and treated accordingly by the bovine herd of this forum. He was even accused of having a fake bio on his blog page. I didn't see you protest against the defamation of Maklelan. Maklelan was much more polite and courteous than I am but it made no difference to his treatment by the bovine herd.

You are really talking about herd behaviour and rationality has very little to do with herd behaviour. It would be irrational to expect rational behaviour from an irrational mob.

Regarding "shov[ing] someone's face down in the mud with that knowledge", that is the penalty for bovine behaviour. In the face of shrill, irrational and atavistic behaviour it is the appropriate response. It is also the appropriate response to intellectual chicanery such as that from Mark Fulton and DocSkeptic. If you are going to erect a paper thin facade of expertise then I will tear it down. It is an incongruity to read complaints about the herd behaviour of religious people and the charlatanry of religious leaders and then to see atheistic counterparts of that behaviour here. It is also slavish to not criticize this behaviour.

Cool

No unfortunately but I may try and video her. The problem is that she needs to be really motivated to get into the room.

Every forum is like a high school because they will always attract the more immature individuals of the population in the same scoops as the normal ones. That's what happens with communities, you get both the good and unsavory elements mixed in. Some people are worse than others; some communities are worse than others, but there is no such thing as a forum without any assholes amongst its membership.

I wish more people understood that.
