Scott Adams (the guy who writes and draws Dilbert) has a blog.
In that blog he has written all sorts of things that are controversial. Hell, he predicted Trump's election months and months (a year?) before it happened. He's also a published writer and trained hypnotist, among other things.
His latest post was pretty interesting because it echoes one of my long-held axioms of forum arguments - ad hominem is the last resort of someone who is fresh out of logical responses. Here it is
for those of you who might enjoy reading it.
Scott Adams lists three other ways to tell you've "won" a political argument, but I think these apply equally to the discussions we have here on the board. I know I've been guilty of a few of these over the years, so I'm going to try to avoid them if possible.
I guess this is fair warning that I'm going to judge others based on a few of his criteria as well. If you commit any of these four internet argument sins, I'm going to smile and move on to another subject.
I know this may fall on deaf ears so I've prepared a quote from Arnold in his breakout role:
"And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!"
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
