  •  Hey, you've been here over 2 years and have (6+ / 0-)

    only published one diary (which you then unpublished)?  Have you garnered any supporters?

    This post of yours kind of reminds me of this:

    Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent’s argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.
    And this:
    Question motives. Twist or amplify any fact which could so taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias. This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive.
    It's kind of weird, isn't it?
    •  Oh no! I questioned your motives! (2+ / 0-)

      That never happens unless it's a planned organized attack by large cadres of elite hacker soldier tinker spies!

      I don't writer diaries and don't feel the need to. I use social media, and yes I have quite a number of followers. Your mistake is in thinking I would care or have to defend myself that I'm not that active on this site in specific. I always giggle at those who pretend like that's a good plan of attack.

      You also cited the straw man. What have I posted that represents a straw man? I'd love for you to try to get specific, as specificity is the enemy of vague unfounded assertion.
