No problem :) It's not that there's something inherently
wrong bad about the combo, it's just that there's nothing right good (in meripo).
Edit: Semantics, but I like it better this way.

i approve of everything in this post except putting 'but' in the edit explanation.
(comments like that are so wittgenstein; he's always saying that the platonist isn't speaking falsely but rather that s/he's adding "isn't that weird?" to sh*t that isn't weird)
wittgenstein aside, semantics are good. everyone, repeat after me: there's nothing wrong with talking about semantics
. what could be more important in understanding someone than knowing what the words they're using mean? also, i like the wrong/bad right/good distinction quoted above. well, also, there is something inherently wrong with SAM/NIN in meripo... it's like going SAM/no sub. no go.
I must say, I'm a glutton for debate IRL. I find it refreshing and thought provoking. I'm definitely outgunned in this situation, so I'll just add some random thoughts on a cryptic
piece of language I'm trying to perfect.
I don't understand when people get all personal while discussing s
omething, so I'd like to piggy back onto your mantra
: there's nothing wrong with debating
. For that matter, there's nothing wrong with mass-debating
either. Why is it looked down upon to get in a big cir
cle and mass-debate? All you gotta remember is that this is an online forum, so if you like to discuss things, followed by a "shut up or I'll punc
h you in the face", you should go have your mass-debate party somewhere else.
On the other hand, I wouldn't mass-debate all over the place here either, but rather concentrate my assets on one subject. This way, you ensure maximum sa
tisfaction for the time and effort you put in. Doing the former is left for the professionals, and could lead to pain, s
corn, or an inflamed red rocket (not referring to the arrow). So, I bow to Milich's professionalism
- Milich wins, I'm just enjoying the ride. :-) Also, the true meaning of words are sometimes hard to gauge without intonation IMO, but I promise you I'm not being hostile.
P.S- I think Wittgenstein kind of looks like Dr. Gregory House.
Edit: I should really try to use preview more often so I can catch grammar problems. Edited, Aug 30th 2009 10:45am by Drigo
