Re: Does "stalking" accomplish anything related to the topics?
Frankly that Mod engages in this petty kind of behavior is somewhat shocking to me.
I wasn't intending to 'stalk'. I thought it was fun. I hoped the would help indicate I wasn't being spiteful in some way.
This post has nothing to do with the topic or the post it is purportedly a reply to.
I disagree. I was musing that the guy in the comic was wagering on a negative hypothesis for which he had no evidence with regards in specifics to the potential FTL neutrino news. It was about the comic that you posted.
It engages in misrepresentations (the perpetuation of falsehoods, not dissimilar to Gish Gallops) and attempts to beg for answers that would not be appropriate to the topic/s.
I didn't realize I was misrepresenting anything or anyone, or that I was saying anything all that contentious. My apologies. My understanding of pseudoskeptics was that when a result comes up that suggests psychic powers, they write off the result with a negative theory for which they have no evidence.
quote:Truzzi considered most skeptics to be pseudoskeptics, a term he coined to describe those who assume an occult or paranormal claim is false without bothering to investigate it.
That seemed to be what the guy in the comic was doing with a physics result rather than a psychic result. Again, apologies if you felt I was harassing you for answers or trying to drag you into an irrelevant debate.
However Percy has posted a moderator request to stop talking about 'perceived problems' in Message 241. I think there's a fair probability that crashfrog will want to respond to the lies he believes I am telling in my posts to him, so it would be wise to get that matter clarified before he starts writing his response out.
So which wins out, Percy's request or the Free For All philosophy?
