I've never been here to argue.
Oh hey there's a thread called "I am willing to argue public education has ruined this country..." started by you
. Clearly you are (or were) 'here' in some sense of the word to 'argue' in some sense of the word...or you are lying. Care to define which?
I've been here to have a productive conversation, a building of perspectives, if you will. I have little incentive to sacrifice my time by holding your hand and giving you a complete tour of my perspective
What people seem to be asking for (and you are denying) is that you state your position in sufficient terms that we can examine. You at least appear to be refusing to do that.
I am here to have people tell me why my perspective is false.
Well unless you can define your position in a way that we all can sufficiently examine it. Then what you are actually doing is asking people to build strawmen which of course are easy to refute (or pretend they are refuted).
I await for you to shed some light on this...
