@owillis I swear, even when he's attempting to do a proscribed takedown, he STILL manages to trip over his Velcro sneakers.
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix What did I trip up on? Was I wrong about something? If so, let me know what it was.
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix Interesting. What's funny about me?
&e; @mpersandy
@NewsConnoisseur Just the whole thing. Honest criticism [aside from disagreeing with your points]: you're just spewing ad hominem
&e; @mpersandy
@NewsConnoisseur And you manage to come across as a Bin Laden apologist.
&e; @mpersandy
@NewsConnoisseur I don't think we're going to get much further than that.
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix Give me an example of an ad hominem argument that I used.
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix Some would say that calling me a "bin Laden apologist", as you have, and as Oliver did, is ad hominem. Do you agree?
&e; @mpersandy
@NewsConnoisseur No, because you're apologizing for Bin Laden
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix I don't see anywhere where I made an ad hominem argument. The "argument" part of "ad hominem argument" is important.
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix See, that's a classic ad hominem argument. Instead of rebutting my argument, you attack me for being an "apologist for bin Laden"
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix I never made an ad hominem argument. Only you and Oliver did that to me.
&e; @mpersandy
@NewsConnoisseur I can tell that your reputation preceded you well. I think it's probably wise for my workload to cut this short. TTFN
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix I have no idea what that's supposed to mean. What have you heard about my reputation?
&e; @mpersandy
@NewsConnoisseur Perhaps I've said too much. Have a nice day, Joe.
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix 1 last Q: when Willis sed 2 me: "wtf is wrong with you", "you sound sick", & called me an apologist 4 al qaeda, was that ad hominem?
&e; @mpersandy
@NewsConnoisseur In the context of questioning Al Qaeda, no.
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix so aparently ur standards 4 what constitutes "ad hominem" vary depending on who ur applying them 2. Very pragmatic approach :)
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix What context shows that I am an al Qaeda apologist?
&e; @mpersandy
RT @NewsConnoisseur: What context shows that I am an al Qaeda apologist? // if you can't see that, then we're obviously done here.
Joe @NewsConnoisseur
@dvnix Shorter you: "I called u an al Qaeda apologist, but have no evidence, so we're done here."
&e; @mpersandy
@NewsConnoisseur Um, no. You pretty much outed yourself as one here: http://t.co/DZf3ZToN

Oh, you got me good, Joe. I am every so embarrassed, I shall never ever tweet politics with a Tweeter of your caliber again. *falls over defeated, half-chuckling*
Joe @NewsConnoisseur 12/01/2012 11:21:52 WIB
I hope you don't really feel that way, and I hope we chat again about other things. You were wrong to call me an al Qaeda apologist, and so was Oliver. In a perfect world, you'd apologize, but I'm not looking for that. I know that's just not what happen
cass&rew @mpersandy 15/01/2012 03:50:16 WIB
And in a perfect world, you'd see how the people you're listening are skewing things as Boolean choices when they're clearly not. And how they're being entirely and dangerously divisive.
