Apparently the Argue Thread doesn't work on a point system. So no extra points for any of us.

Maybe we could argue the merits of a point-based scoring system for arguments? Or if we agree on the merits, perhaps we could instead argue the point values of various argumentative techniques?

To be a redundant tautology, the words have to mean the same thing, thus "travel" and "trailer" are not a tautological redundancy. "Travel" modifies "trailer" as one of multiple types of trailers.

If one word means several things, and is combined with another word that means one of those things, is it a partial redundant tautology? I suggest independent reviews by both the Department of Tautology Department and the Department of Redundancy Department. Both are staffed with people with Multiple Personality Disorder.

However, this has become an intellectual argument and is much too tame. Where is the vicious, irresponsible, nasty arguing that brings passion and apoplexy to all?

That is a 10, or maybe a 9.99999!

McDave, it can be assumed that one is always wrong and must repeat the position or another will need to do same or alternate if thread is to remain on topic. Additionally it is an element of the primary thread that someone tell you so. Of course, sometimes you are only partially wrong and it is in the interest of a poster to support your perspective at the discount of another. But, in general, it is correct that you are mostly, if not completely, always in error. Pat

Especially if you get to say, nener, nener, nener, at the end. If you win an argument who else can relish the joy?

But would they have to be the same multiple personality?

I disrepectfully disagree. Self abuse is also available.

But I regress. Perhaps he meant "nopal". Living in the southwest, I must advise from personal experience, never sit on a nopal, a less happy form of self abuse (there's a naughty pun deeply hidden there).

Did you mean a leetle nopal, or a nopalito? Is it too much to ask for a leetle precisiůn in language around here?

Self-abuse is but an extension of self-gratification.
Why would someone abuse themselves if the end goal is not self- gratification?
And is not self-gratification met with some loneliness of enjoying something unshared?
This leading to self-abuse....
