DP:

Exactly the point. When you only have two exemplars to work with, you have to draw your conclusions from that.

What I dislike about all three of you is how you come on so heavy with the intimation, if not an out-and-out statement, that your opponent has to be mentally weak or otherwise deficient.

DrFaust,

Tyrkulnalo se gyrneto, pa si namerilo pohlupaka. Never thought Bill would find a true counterpart and yet here you are.

Oh yeah,

Complete lack of sarcasm detector is a staple of the new intelligentsia, as evinced by our honorable members thereof on this forum.

Bill,

".... Believe me, most of them are absolutely not like the exemplars in this forum."

It seems to me like a pretty general assumption, Dr.Faust. Exemplars= pattern, standard (hardly two women).

WW:

"Sweeping generalizations and logical fallacies are a sign of the new intelligentsia. Just like speaking from the gut, a science with many outspoken proponents."

How generous of you to supply us with an example of both!

Since when is speaking from the gut a "science"?

The trouble with the "new intelligentsia" is that they think they're smarter than everyone else. They have no respect for other people's opinions and/or experience if any of it clashes with theirs. I have a better name for it. Academic snobbery.

WW,

even you should understand that my statement was no generalization. But elementary logic is (also) not your strong point.

"I think that I am smarter than you! lol"

Well, that identifies one of the women, doesn't it? Now if you can get WW to admit that, things will be a lot clearer.

DP,

my statement was no generalization.

Since I knew only two women on this forum, my statement was exactly right. I didn't say 'all the woman in this forum are like that' - I said something else, remember?

"no offence, I didn't know you are a woman. My message meant the two individuals WW and Klan-Nellie. And if you are smarter than me, I doubt nevertheless."


DrFaust,

The point is that you were too quick to make sweeping generalizations. This is not a smart thing to do regardless of gender, in my opinion.

Faustino,

You're just as smart as the other BuddyOfBill here claiming he spoke five-six languages and got caught using Babelfish to translate stuff. Thinking about it, you could be him.

Oh., really, DrFaust?

And how many women you can identy on this forum?
I think that I am smarter than you! lol

Fisty

" How sick must a person be to write something like that?"

What are you now--a suicide bomber defender? Before long, you will be telling us that suicide bombers and Somali pirates have human rights. Go ahead, I dare you to bring on this debate.

Clearly you have reading comprehension problems. Read the rules again, genius! Have I insulted you or called you anything racist or insulting? You are the one flinging insults at me for having an opinions that you happen to disagree with. You are a politically correct liberal piece of work.

My advice to you--get in touch with your inner German. And take your medication before posting on here. You have been bouncing around the world for too long and it has affected your mind, and not in a good way.
