Elmore – the empire strikes back

Posted on Updated on

Just as things go quiet on the Elmore front, a new and energetic attack thread appears, but is buried in the comments of a past article.

For those interested in the never-ending saga that is Elmore, take a look at the exchanges in the comments here.

I’m afraid I probably engaged a little too long with one correspondent, but felt obliged to address the scatter-gun mix of put-downs and logical fallacies.

And it turns out that I’m condescending. Who knew?

Read the comments, and see what you think, you insignificant peons.

    I’m so offended by RB that I’m quite comfortable approaching his level of offensiveness, that equally insignificant peon.

    Hmm, so this is how wars start…

    Since this is a text-based medium, I literally cannot hear RB’s tone. Therefore I’ll proceed using the “Principle of Uncharity”, which means assuming RB is commenting in bad faith; sabotaging dialogue; cheating at this formally structured and meaningful debate; and that RB couldn’t care less about the personal and social consequences of loosing face, and RB knows it –because (says me) RB is a troll or a tone troll or has behaved here in a troll-like fashion. Troll-a-lol-a-lolling along.

    Think that about covers it. I hereby proclaim this a rational and moral victory for me and mine. Whadda I win?? Respect or… 😦
