I’ve just bought a new book and I thought I would share something in it with you all, especially as it is a holiday in the USA.In the introduction, the author writes:”Read the book through … noting points with the following characteristics:- What it says interests you
– What it says pleases you
– what is says flatters you
– What it says insults you
– What it says disturbs you
– What it says accuses you
– What it says exposes youIsn’t this what this forum is all about. If you agree, then it is a great place to confirm your ideas. If you disagree, it is a great place to practice counter argument (logos.)Cheers,

Andy, you are correct for the most part, however there are those here who do not debate those of a different opinion; they debase anyone not agreeing with them.0November 27, 2008 at 4:55 pm #178145
You’re right of course ..But a debaser in the forum might provide a useful service, since as I’m sure you know from your own experience, there are many ‘small minded’ people out there.0
