batouyukinawa - get over yourself.

You're pompous and have an inflated opinion of yourself and your writing/debating abilities. You reply with only criticism in a stilted and overly formal writing style. You are disparaging of anyone who disagrees with you.

Just my opinion of course, but I don't think you got along "famously" with anyone here, including grigori.

I have no high opinion of myself. I'm sorry if you perceive it that way; I just get tired of the few relying and leaning on others words as if they were their own. Simply endorsing what Grigori says is a mere cop-out to their own inadequacies. As for my formality; I see it as a way best to stay objective in all instances. After all, a personal basis is a form of subjectivity. I would rather remain neutral.

Well, I personally would speak for myself, but ones like girgori and whyaduck usually beat me to it. And for the most part, I don't have that much time as it is, so why waste it repeating what someone else said when they do such a great job in clearly stating what I would say anyway?

:O

Yes, I think it's quite evident actually. I merely point out Enterprises flaws, but I also at times point out it's strengths. However, there simply are more flaws then strengths. Don't blame the critic, blame the creator.

So which rhetorical fallacies did I make?...I don't even understand you Grigori, we used to get along famously. Now you disregard everything I have established? And for what reason? To take the side of one who clearly has no aptitude in arguing effectively; so instead you attack me? Fine, but this will teach them nothing, rather rely on, and attach to your words. You are not helping them, you are simply enabling them.

I don't disregard everything you've established; I just agreed with you again a moment ago on another thread.

I object to your rhetorical fallacy of disregarding the evidence others provide, and the evidence within the series itself; others decline to repeat themselves to you, but you repeat yourself to the point of trolling. Others cease to discuss because you aren't listening or responding to their points, then you accuse them of the same thing. And you often cease to discuss at all, and in fact you have name-called on many occasions.

I've agreed with many of your points, but I've been here long enough to know that your charges of bias and emotional-based arguments against many of these members are specious. There are a thousand topics within ENT to debate; you've chosen only one. Don't judge the others on this Forum based on their weariness in discussing that particular one.

The thing that really grates: you know you aren't going to convince anyone with the antagonistic tone you take in some of your posts; that amounts to leaving the discussion. If you're not part of the discussion at hand, you're trolling. You're aware that you aren't on these threads to contribute anything positive.

Yours has serious limitations, as well: a repeated pattern of discarding or failing to respond to the points that haven't supported your argument, which itself is reduced to tautologies (a product of that repetition).

You've expressed my sentiments quite well, grigori.

(*...and I'm the one that wants to become a writer... :(*)

You are a writer, Vipe! If nothing, you've published a volume's worth of original captions... :)

I majored in writing and classical rhetoric before continuing in grad school in literary crit, the historiography of the Middle Ages and Renaissance in Britain. So just write a lot.

So glad you are with us G!!! :cool:

bakatcha Yx! :D

Hey, he got 5 little boxes. Does that mean he got the boot? Or can he still post, like what's his name? (Jereath or something...)

His group went to "guest." He can no longer post with that name, - although, the possibility of "reinstatement" still exists if he waits long enough.

Ah--he got the fifth box AFTER his last post under his name but BEFORE I saw it. That explains it. Never understood what the "Groups" were all about.

Just report, report, report. Starting whole threads with no relevance at all is spamming if anything is.

And then he just started spamming in another thread where we were having a good conversation going. I reported him for that one.
