When it comes to talking about himself, he either posts things like that intentionally trying to draw some flack, hoping to spark more argument, or he is a truly sad and not quite right. (I’m not just talking about the $750 for a Sanford beer league jersey, I’m talking about the “I speak clearly and confidently” crap).
This is identical to his style when arguing about hockey. He is either taking absurd and ignorant positions just to argue or he truly believes what he is saying and is…well…God help him.
Just look around the Asylum to see the repeated patterns.
Just word search “ad hominem” and “logical fallacies” and you will find some posts of his, arguing with Asylum members.
You will also note that when someone asks him to give specific examples of bad play (or something similar) to justify his position, he turns around asking for that person to provide examples, never meeting that challenge, just spewing and on and on for the sake of argument. So his approach is not unique to this thread. Like I said, his M.O. is well known.
For the record, as far as I can remember, I have never engaged him on the Asylum. So it’s not like I got a past history with the guy. I just know about his BS.
There is nothing wrong with a dissenting or contrary opinion, but he has a specific pattern of conduct. He is either a troll or really f-ing stupid.
You're the one that's been talking about me. The only time I've spoken about myself, is in response to your mentioning my jerseys, to mentioning things about me.
I have a worry about Mason. Very few people seem to hold this view. That's fine. I had a worry about Toivonen, etc.
Yup...I'll mention ad hominem and logical fallacy to the folks who need to use them. I don't.
Try discussing a topic with me, instead of relying on my reputation with people who yourself refer to as crazy people. You're basing your opinion of me by what people you denigrate think.
