Can someone pull out the link to the "Political Graphs" topic that was made a long time ago. I've looked on every page but can't find it. I was just going to say that DDO makes people more liberal. This is the political graph when I first took the test which was during the time that topic was popular: http://politicalcompass.org...

Then I took it today and found that I was different.

You don't understand politics, let alone have a radical viewpoint.

You're a genuine @$$hole. I find it annoying how you try to put down people developing their political opinions as though yours are any more matured :p

Do you have any objective standard by which you measure somebody an "@sshole?" If not, then I would suggest that you screw off.

rofl what is this? Calling you an @sshole did not imply that such behavior had an objective basis. By the rude, inconsiderate, and aggressive nature of your comment, I think most people would agree that you're acting like an @$$hole.

Care to explain to anyone how libertarian fascists can exist?

I would LOVE to hear your explanation.

Alright, just let me pick up my thinking cap. I seem to have lost it when I rebound, stunned at your comment, my dear friend.

For an accusation to be true, there needs to be an objective basis to decide on the validity of the accusation.

People "saying" whether I am an @sshole or not is irrelevant as that is a subjective basis, not an objective basis.

No, I would love to see you put on yours. That taste of bitterness should keep off your tongue, otherwise you sound as trenchant as the sound of a falling axe.

Ike, I think LKs objection stems from rather than you saying "you're an arsehole", you said "you're a genuine arsehole" which has that extra level of objectivity.

It was not intended to. Obviously, I am dancing around you in circles.

And cheerio. You seem eligible for a new member whom I can antagonize...without using a single thought.:)

No, my objection is that since there is no objective way to qualify and quantify if someone is an "@sshole," then the insult has no meaning.

No, my objection is that since there is no objective way to qualify and quantify if someone is an "@sshole," then the insult has no meaning.

It seems this conversation is too magnetic for you to turn aside from....apparently...

Man-is-good, please tell me how I am a "libertarian fascist."

If not, then screw off.

The word does not have to objective in meaning (no words are - their meanings are not metaphysical). However, it can be qualified and quantified. For example we could define arsehole as "occasionally displays aggressive and boorish behaviour". A quick analysis would determine whether that was true or false.

MIG just likes oxymorons. They appeal to his aesthetic nature.

Yes, however there really is no way in which you can determine whether behaviour is "aggressive" and "boorish" as everybody has their own opinion on this matter and everybody thinks differently of what classifies this behaviours. Hence, there being a lack of objective measurement.

We just keep defining terms until we have an answer.

Someone should save the link of this thread. It's the perfect evidence that the forum post qualities are much lower than before, and that these kind of threads might easily make everything worse here in the future.
