    No, I'm saying that if you have an issue with information presented from whatever source you can intellligently state what the problem is without telling a poster that you hope they never ****ing went to college, or whatever rudeness that was.

    The norm on message boards is linking a web page, you have an issue with a web page, make your case. What you did was incredibly rude. Not least of which because you said it to a poster who's one of the most persistently polite I've ever come across on a message board. And I've been reading them since the 90s.

    Soros got plenty of press during the election, I'd be surprised if most people had never heard of him.

    I've heard of him, but only insomuch as the right hates him, he's really rich, and he donates to liberal causes. That's about it. I actually never heard of him before the last election campaign.

    That's right, he's a billionaire.

    Apparently you didn't read the thread. It may help if you did that.

    The poster in question posted the article in question, containing the two erronious quotes.

    Two seperate posterse pointed out these quotes were false. Untrue. Made up.

    The poster in questions response:

    they were sourced quotes from El Rushbo as the article I linked demonstrated.
    They claimed they were quotes from Rush, that were sourced. He continued to suggest that those completely fabricated quotes were lies by referencing an article that was already shown to be false.

    I'm sorry you don't like me attacking his opinion aggressively, but its a poor opinion. I'm sorry you don't like me attacking his back up for his opinion, that its sourced, but it was a bad back up because using false material as your source is not sourcing. Which was my entire point. He's claiming that the article he wrote is "sourced" and therefore true, which is patentedly absurd, because the source that the article is sourcing IS LYING.

    Why should his opinion, and his reasons for his opinions, be treated with any more kid gloves than an idiotic asinine opinion that Obama is from Kenya or that he had Gay Homo sex?

    Why?

    What do all three have in Common:

    1. All three's original source is not credible
    2. All three have been denied by the person their concern
    3. All three have been unable to be proven after this point

    Yet you're trying to tell me that we should respect, nay just assume that they're actually correct, about Obama being from Kenya and had Gay Homo sex while high on drugs because someone posted a link to it and therefore we must take it for truth?

    No.

    You tell them that information is wrong, been proven to be wrong, and was a lie to begin with. And if they CONTINUE to push an opinion that is wrong, shown to be wrong, and shown to be based in a lie then you attack that lie and you attack the reason they believe the lie to be true.

    Yes, the norm on a message board is to link to things when you're trying to make claims of fact. But if you link to **** that's patentedly false then that doesn't help back up your claims.

    Who's looking for kid gloves? Simple lack of rudeness is fine. Who said assume anything is correct? I believe I said state the case it's not without questioning whether or not someone could go, or ever went, to ****ing college. Ad hominem attacks are never pretty, and really don't do much to bolster the point of someone posting them.

    And, btw, I DID read the thread.

    I am sure then next time we shall see your staunch defense risen when someone decides to aggressively go after the point of a birther, since you care not for the accuracy of a claim but simply that those making the claim, reasserting the claim, and ignoring all calls that the claim is false are to be treated as if their statement of fact is credible. I shall greatly be looking forward to that defense in the next birther thread.

    You might, if it was particularly egregious.

    I once walked up to three teenagers fighting one evening in Jamaica Plain in MA. Two of them were beating the snot out of a third - I rushed right up and said wth is wrong with you people, where's your mother!? The kid getting beat up got to leave, and the other two walked away. My friend who grew up in the area told me never to do that again, I could have gotten knifed.

    But yea, I just might do what you said. You never know.
