Any repetition of my position has been to correct wilful misinterpretation of it. The substance itself has always remained the same.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Well, you have taught me how to use dictionaries: Synonyms can always be used interchangeably without regard for context or category.

According do thesaurus.com, substance is synonymous with animal. It also tells me animal is synonymous with thing, which is synonymous with affair which is synonymous with fornication.

Please stop bragging about your sexual encounters.

From what I recall, I never cited links to thesauri. The links were to dictionary entries, stating that a secondary definition of polemic is 'an argument'. No inference or special "way of reading" is required for the equation. I'm not going to repost it, because Original_Position has asked us to stop derailing threads with semantic debates.

Sexual encounters? Lol...you have a vivid imagination.

I'll let this be my last post to you in a good while and end it with two simple points: If you're a troll, you lack wit. If you're not, you're mediocre.

This is a bare assertion, which is false. Instead of addressing the substance of your opponent's position, you've decided to deflect with a fabrication. Most unfortunate. Thank you for, once again, ignoring the fact that you denied a plain dictionary definition of a word to avoid admission of error.

Also false; correcting wilful misinterpretations of a cogent and perspicuous statement is a far cry from changing one's argument. When my position is misrepresented, I will correct the error by pointing out the interpreter's shortcomings. In your case, those shortcomings are wilful, designed to avoid admitting the refutation of your counterpoints.

I'm not sure exactly which insults of mine you're referring to- it's getting hard to keep track of all of your fictions and platitudes. If you're referencing my chastisement of you and Aaron W. for engaging in captious argumentation, and then refusing to admit defeat by falsely accusing your interlocutor of engaging in such argumentation, then you deserve every bit of the reprobation I've brought against you. When you act like a child, you'll be treated as one.

In short, you have absolutely no argument here.

You can keep telling yourself that if it makes you sleep well at night. I could post a laundry list of your greatest hits over the past 3 weeks or so, demonstrating a pattern of constant positional shifting and unreasonable interpretation to avoid admission of error, but I think I'll save my breath for the time being. Every argument you've thrown at me has been soundly quashed, and now you wish to paint me as "lacking wit" and "mediocre". Supremely amusing. These are the cries of an inferiority complex in abject distress over encountering an opponent with zero tolerance for bull****. If I give you an inch, it would be an assault against the integrity of reason.

Feel free to reengage at any time, but spare me your trite defense mechanisms, k?

There is no try, my young padawan. I'm responding with basic logic. Tame_deuces has fabricated claims of "untrustworthy memory" against me to avoid admitting his errors, yet cannot provide a single example of these claims, despite stating that I have "firmly established it in dozens of posts". Dozens. A standard dozen is a set of 12, and the plural implies a minimum of 24. Tame_deuces is claiming that there are at least 24 posts of mine where I have "firmly established" that I have an "untrustworthy memory"...yet can't provide a single example. Marvelous.

This is the kind of opponent I dream of: one who erects straw man after straw man, hoping against hope that they will not be toppled at the slightest breeze.
