Re: Behind My Back ?
Wow, another bewildering glimpse behind the looking glass! I'll check my email tonight to see if I have anything from WT.
It would be wonderful to be able to engage WT in a rational discussion of his positions, but if the Boot Camp experience has taught us anything it's the extreme unlikelihood of persuading an irrationalist to change his stripes.
An explanation, in this case by way of example, is important because EvC Forum has a vested interest in not only being fair, but also of appearing fair. WillowTree says, "I have always said that a ruler and any map is a laughable method to determine LLM (Longest Land Meridian)." Such offerings leave one nonplussed. How does one respond to this? Does the discussion really have to begin at such a ludicrous level that we first have to convince WillowTree that one can use maps and rulers to discover actual distances? The mind just boggles at the possibility of someone who denies that maps can be used for this purpose. Or even worse, at the possibility of someone who is so taken with his own beliefs that he would rather deny the obvious and be thought retarded or insane before giving them up.
WillowTree's permanent banning, and the banning of all likeminded benighted souls, will stand. EvC Forum will not be playing host to nonsense discussions.
