And just to let you in on the joke - I used to teach sixth graders my first year of teaching so i know darn well about the silly type of YES OR NO YOU HAVE TO SAY ONE OR THE OTHER tactics such children use.
I was onto you from the start of your question EB.
here you are in 358
that is what kids do EB. You have to answer yes or no. And the whole time you sit back thinking you have won some great victory because if I say YES - then you jump up and down in glee claiming that I just admitted you already have made me look bad. And if I say NO you still jump up and down claiming that I am a coward and no longer want to look bad and just admitted that I did.do you want me to make you look bad again.....yes or no...?
Its rather easy to see through EB and anybody who ever taught sixth graders can see it a mile away.
But it certainly exposes what you think are clever tactics in debate.
And speaking of debate - I did so for two years in college and nobody ever tried to pull silly kid stuff like that. Nobody.
