Quote from: contracycleUh - well in past "debates", the issue was "decided" without IMO as serious challenge to the counter-argument. So some folk have a tendency to say "we've discussed this before" or "see the well discussed critiques of metap[lot in prior threads". Metaplot has not, IMO, been adequately critiqued, and I'm afraid I consider calling the matter closed on that basis rather dishonest, or perhaps self serving.
Quote from: Mike HolmesI agree with many of your points, and think that you potentially have a good argument. But you are presenting it poorly, IMO. The term for such attacks is Ad Hominems, and they are considered one of the classic logical fallacies. Attack the argument, not the one who makes the argument.
