    Poor form. Comparing a (rational) policy of a private board we choose to consult to Nazis?

    I have a little saying I like to use in these situations:

    "Whoever compares themselves to Jesus or their opponent to Nazis first, loses the argument."

    A big Amen to that, I come here for technical know how and information...which thankfully there is an abundant supply.

    In over ten years online I've invariably seen people drag their OT opinions about politics or fill-in-the-blank into any special interest forum.

    There are 4 million other venues just screaming to get you to join in but for some reason people seem to think because they might share a particular interest in a subject I could give two ****s what their prescriptions for society's ills are.

    I don't understand your reply, except to see it in humour as in "the life of brian" as it was intended, comedy.
    If you must, argue the point as to why, or why not, simply sign up and state your point.
    I remember reading somwhere about the Ancient Greeks and their worshiping of gods and goddesses. Apparantly there were 12 and each one stood as a statue on it's base.
    And then they had a empty statue base for the 13th god, and called this, "to the unknown god". On this base anyone was allowed to take the stand and say what they wanted to say then move on. I guess at the end of the day they knew they were mortal unless someone spoke of an idea that changed things.
    The along came Alexander the Great, and the rest is history.

    The Ancient Greeks also had another theory, and that was they reckon they had all the blueprints etc to make machines so to have machines do the work for us, but they denied themselves of this privalidge because they thought they will end up being slave to the machines in anycase.
    As we are today, we cannot do without our machines, can we ?
    If our machines break down, be it a electric can opener or a ATM, it needs fixing, it demands to be fixed or no cash and no beans.

    Okaaay.... I guess this really isn't the place for politics. But the season is short, after all, and arguing is kind of fun. Exasperating, too. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    But the moment we discuss, say, MB legislation we're straying into social policy. And that's only one step away from politics.

    But I'll agree that these recent arguments didn't serve much purpose. I don't see that they did any harm either, though.

    I like Houghmade's quote about comparing, by the way. That's not bad.

    I wanna argue but there's never enough arguing time.....let's have an argument about the lack of arguing time.
    Better go: http://arguecrazy.com/

    BTW,valid point BoltsMissing....to me this thread is about the concept of arguing for arguments sake.
    Some ppl here pick-up on the slightest inconsistency in another persons comments & HAVE to run with it.....sometimes i don't even bother replying to a genuine persons need for help cos i know it's gonna be a hassle.
    Trivial,anally-retentive ppl. :yuck:

    I think my point was fairly obvious. It was clear that an unwarranted camparison to Nazism was being made. Be revisionist if you like, but the use of the term "mien Fuher" with a capitol "F" is pretty clear.

    Maybe I was a hair sensitive, but way too many people find it way to easy to call others Nazis. I take very little seriously, but even I do not find that funny.

    Oh boy - another argument thread, and it isn't political this time! COOL! :p

    Comedy? Let's review the original post.......

    1: It is posted in ALL CAPS, and we all know what that means.
    2: You are telling us (IN ALL CAPS) "where to go".
    3: Obscure Monty Python reference - maybe 30% of the intended audience got that one.
    4: A link to google? That's downright insulting because many of us have found this message board using google, and there are many other great search engines around other than google.

    BUT - we all basically waived our 1st amendment rights when we signed up here.

    The Argument Clinic

    The sketch:
    Man: Ah. I'd like to have an argument, please.
    Receptionist: Certainly sir. Have you been here before?

    Man: No, I haven't, this is my first time.

    Receptionist: I see. Well, do you want to have just one argument, or were you thinking of taking a course?

    Man: Well, what is the cost?

    Receptionist: Well, It's one pound for a five minute argument, but only eight pounds for a course of ten.

    Man: Well, I think it would be best if I perhaps started off with just the one and then see how it goes.

    Receptionist: Fine. Well, I'll see who's free at the moment.


    Receptionist: Mr. DeBakey's free, but he's a little bit conciliatory. Ah yes, Try Mr. Barnard; room 12.

    Man: Thank you.

    (Walks down the hall. Opens door.)

    Mr Barnard: WHAT DO YOU WANT?

    Man: Well, I was told outside that...

    Mr Barnard: Don't give me that, you snotty-faced heap of parrot droppings!

    Man: What?

    Mr Barnard: Shut your festering gob, you tit! Your type really makes me puke, you vacuous, coffee-nosed, maloderous, pervert!!!

    Man: Look, I CAME HERE FOR AN ARGUMENT, I'm not going to just stand...!!

    Mr Barnard: OH, oh I'm sorry, but this is abuse.

    Man: Oh, I see, well, that explains it.

    Mr Barnard: Ah yes, you want room 12A, Just along the corridor.

    Man: Oh, Thank you very much. Sorry.

    Mr Barnard: Not at all.

    Man: Thank You. (Under his breath) Stupid git!!

    (Walk down the corridor)

    Man: (Knock)

    Mr Vibrating: Come in.

    Man: Ah, Is this the right room for an argument?

    Mr Vibrating: I told you once.

    Man: No you haven't.

    Mr Vibrating: Yes I have.

    Man: When?

    Mr Vibrating: Just now.

    Man: No you didn't.

    Mr Vibrating: Yes I did.

    Man: You didn't

    Mr Vibrating: I did!

    Man: You didn't!

    Mr Vibrating: I'm telling you I did!

    Man: You did not!!

    Mr Vibrating: Oh, I'm sorry, just one moment. Is this a five minute argument or the full half hour?

    Man: Oh, just the five minutes.

    Mr Vibrating: Ah, thank you. Anyway, I did.

    Man: You most certainly did not.

    Mr Vibrating: Look, let's get this thing clear; I quite definitely told you.

    Man: No you did not.

    Mr Vibrating: Yes I did.

    Man: No you didn't.

    Mr Vibrating: Yes I did.

    Man: No you didn't.

    Mr Vibrating: Yes I did.

    Man: No you didn't.

    Mr Vibrating: Yes I did.

    Man: You didn't.

    Mr Vibrating: Did.

    Man: Oh look, this isn't an argument.

    Mr Vibrating: Yes it is.

    Man: No it isn't. It's just contradiction.

    Mr Vibrating: No it isn't.

    Man: It is!

    Mr Vibrating: It is not.

    Man: Look, you just contradicted me.

    Mr Vibrating: I did not.

    Man: Oh you did!!

    Mr Vibrating: No, no, no.

    Man: You did just then.

    Mr Vibrating: Nonsense!

    Man: Oh, this is futile!

    Mr Vibrating: No it isn't.

    Man: I came here for a good argument.

    Mr Vibrating: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.

    Man: An argument isn't just contradiction.

    Mr Vibrating: It can be.

    Man: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.

    Mr Vibrating: No it isn't.

    Man: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.

    Mr Vibrating: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.

    Man: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'

    Mr Vibrating: Yes it is!

    Man: No it isn't!

    Man: Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes.

    (short pause)

    Mr Vibrating: No it isn't.

    Man: It is.

    Mr Vibrating: Not at all.

    Man: Now look.

    Mr Vibrating: (Rings bell) Good Morning.

    Man: What?

    Mr Vibrating: That's it. Good morning.

    Man: I was just getting interested.

    Mr Vibrating: Sorry, the five minutes is up.

    Man: That was never five minutes!

    Mr Vibrating: I'm afraid it was.

    Man: It wasn't.


    Mr Vibrating: I'm sorry, but I'm not allowed to argue anymore.

    Man: What?!

    Mr Vibrating: If you want me to go on arguing, you'll have to pay for another five minutes.

    Man: Yes, but that was never five minutes, just now. Oh come on!

    Mr Vibrating: (Hums)

    Man: Look, this is ridiculous.

    Mr Vibrating: I'm sorry, but I'm not allowed to argue unless you've paid!

    Man: Oh, all right.

    (pays money)

    Mr Vibrating: Thank you. (short pause)

    Man: Well?

    Mr Vibrating: Well what?

    Man: That wasn't really five minutes, just now.

    Mr Vibrating: I told you, I'm not allowed to argue unless you've paid.

    Man: I just paid!

    Mr Vibrating: No you didn't.

    Man: I DID!

    Mr Vibrating: No you didn't.

    Man: Look, I don't want to argue about that.

    Mr Vibrating: Well, you didn't pay.

    Man: Aha. If I didn't pay, why are you arguing? I Got you!

    Mr Vibrating: No you haven't.

    Man: Yes I have. If you're arguing, I must have paid.

    Mr Vibrating: Not necessarily. I could be arguing in my spare time.

    Man: Oh I've had enough of this.

    Mr Vibrating: No you haven't.

    Man: Oh Shut up.

    (Walks down the stairs. Opens door.)

    Man: I want to complain.

    Complainer: You want to complain! Look at these shoes. I've only had them three weeks and the heels are worn right through.

    Man: No, I want to complain about...

    Complainer: If you complain nothing happens, you might as well not bother.

    Man: Oh!

    Complainer: Oh my back hurts, it's not a very fine day and I'm sick and tired of this office.

    (Slams door. walks down corridor, opens next door.)

    Man: Hello, I want to... Ooooh!

    Spreaders: No, no, no. Hold your head like this, then go Waaah. Try it again.

    Man: uuuwwhh!!

    Spreaders: Better, Better, but Waah, Waah! Put your hand there.

    Man: No.

    Spreaders: Now..

    Man: Waaaaah!!!

    Spreaders: Good, Good! That's it.

    Man: Stop hitting me!!

    Spreaders: What?

    Man: Stop hitting me!!

    Spreaders: Stop hitting you?

    Man: Yes!

    Spreaders: Why did you come in here then?

    Man: I wanted to complain.

    Spreaders: Oh no, that's next door. It's being-hit-on-the-head lessons in here.

    Man: What a stupid concept.
