    So pay attention and read what it actually says.

    And btw, your signature is meaningless to this game you are playing.
    Nevermind, you can declare it over and over again, it doesnt make it true. It means you cannot support your claim, plain and simple.

    I'll leave you and your repeated game-playing accusation with this:

    Are you familiar with the paraphrasing of Einstein's famous quote, the definition of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result? If not, I suggest you Google it.

    Stop being dishonest.
    My claim is and has been supported.

    So again since you apparently choose not to pay attention.

    You keep ignoring that those standards were codified into law and were not personal standards.
    You keep ignoring that the removal of those standards is a further erosion.

    Stop playing games.

    I would suggest you follow your own advice, because you obviously keep expecting a different result, which is ridiculous, as there can be no other result.

    My position has been stated.
    You stated whether or not you agree with prostitution being legalized? I don't think so.

    You stated what specific "standards of decency" have been "eroded"? I don't think so.

    You've simply taken the cowardly way out throughout the thread.

    That is irrelevant to my position.

    As with others who refuse to take a stand and then claim victory because of it, I can only shake my head in amusement and pity.

    You are being dishonest.

    I stated my position and have not backed down from it.
    It was an erosion.

    Yes, an "erosion of standards of decency" which are "known by all." You can't actually state them, but they're "known by all." Or are in the OP. Or something.

    Of course, here is the full extent of the OP, which states no such "standards":

    By Randall Palmer, Reuters

    OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada struck down all current restrictions on prostitution on Friday, including bans on brothels and on street solicitation, declaring the laws were unconstitutional because they violated prostitutes' safety.

    The sweeping 9-0 decision will take effect in one year, inviting Parliament to try to come up with some other way to regulate the sex trade if it chooses to do so.

    [...]

    Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin said many prostitutes "have no meaningful choice" but to "engage in the risky economic activity of prostitution," and that the law should not make such lawful activity more dangerous.

    "It makes no difference that the conduct of pimps and johns is the immediate source of the harms suffered by prostitutes," she wrote.

    "The impugned laws deprive people engaged in a risky, but legal, activity of the means to protect themselves against those risks."

    [...]

    And the further erosion of decent standards.

    The Justice's reasoning is absurd. Or is that liberal?
    So I guess you're left with "known by all." Which is your cowardly refusal to back up what you say.

    Why? Why do you persist?

    What a shame that you can't pay attention and let your own convoluted thoughts get in the way of reality.

    And this whole exchange with you is a game you are playing.
    It is either that. or you really are incapable of understanding.

    I see no "standards of decency" that the court removed. They're certainly not in your OP. You have not spelled them out anywhere else.

    All you've done is accuse people of being "dishonest" for not taking "you know what I'm talking about" for an answer. That's unusually pathetic, even by the lowest of Debate Politics standards.

    Yep! You are playing a game. And you are wrong and dishonest.
    You have already shown you understand what was said.
    You even tried to say they were my standards of decency. Which they were not.
    So yes you were, and are, dishonest.

    You knew exactly what was being said.

    You were dishonest, and I have accused you exactly of what you did. You were saying I said things I did not say.
    That was you being dishonest and what really is pathetic.
