If you're going to split posts any time someone merely offers an alternative point of view, then you may as well actively delete them.

That is up to the thread author and - to a lesser extent - the admins.

Standing request, can this and further posts from this tool get split elsewhere? I'd rather not shit up this thread with nonsense, he's already got enough of them on the go for that.

And as I'm apparently off ignore, hey guy, fuck you and fuck off.

Done.

Wow. Insular as fuck.

You don't seem to realize how people work.

Coalescing into toxic, like-minded groups who reject and mislabel information that does not conform to a consensual but unacknowledged bias?

Yeah, I know how people work. Or rather, I know how the people here work. I regret ever creating an account.

I imagine it might seem like that's what happened.  If maybe you had something the size of a lemon growing on the part of your brain that tells you which way to put your pants on in the morning.

And you know where the door is.  There is precisely nothing keeping you here, aside from your bruised ego.

Hm. Yeah. You know, when you say things like that, it really is easy to understand how it might seem like that's exactly what happened.

My self-esteem hasn't been bruised in the least. I have it on good authority elsewhere that it's common knowledge that every discussion here eventually devolves into one of two things: autofellating slacktivism, or fiery wreckage.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

I've gotta agree wih Elvis here about you all being in many regards closed minded. Based on he fact that all of you refuse to put forth any sort of intelligible argument and instead rely on the automatic gainsaying of anything the other side says I can only conclude that either you must not be able to back up anything you say and/or are arguing from emotion rather than reason. You're actually starting to convince me that the left may be almost as bad as the right.

Which, oddly enough, was the point of view I was attempting to share in the post that sparked the fuse.

Unfortunately, "the left is as bad as the right" sounds an awful lot like "the right is as good as the left".

To pigeons.

Oh, but wait, the real problem is that what I was saying wasn't fun. Because all of the other threads in this section are a hoot.

They never do.  They kick in the door, hollering out how we are supposed to be REALLY REAL DISCORDIANS, and then they get all butthurt when we laugh at them and then they never, ever shut up again.
