To the marginally informed:
Argumentative: Given to arguing; disputatious. Contentious.
Argue: To put forth reasons for or against; debate.
Colloquial: Characteristic of or appropriate to the spoken language or to writing that seeks the effect of speech; informal.
The above is exactly what you do and are.
Depends. I assumed you were saying I am arguing more than you are. By the above definition I'm probably arguing just about as much as you (since it would seem that your words above are an argument). I'm also doing a pretty large amount of explaining about my words and reasoning. You, not so much.
You're twisting words colloquially
I'd tend to think "twist" implies intent. So I need to know the actual definition you are using before I can twist words. Unless to you mentioning that your use of a word differs from mine implies "twisting". Is the request to know what you mean by said word is also "twisting"?
You are potentially correct in one point. When you say "colloquial" meaning "usage in familiar and informal conversation". Then yes, I think I do that at first. Like most people I figure. What's the problem there? I do appear to recognize that your usages are different than mine. I also tend to ask for what your definitions are. What's the problem with figuring out what you are talking about?
Every word everybody else uses is a weasel word for you.
Who is "everybody else" in this sentence? Didn't you just say that I was using terms in a colloquial sense. Doesn't that mean that the majority of conversations would favor my usage?
You say I say one thing to just twist it around again because it suits your combative verbal loquacity.
You're appealing to something you can't know there. Just sayin...
Clarification is exactly the opposite of what you do. If you had an ounce of capability in this sense you'd have dispensed with the response and gotten on with it. Of course, this is impossible for you because you're incapable of such conciseness.
I think you're wrong. I could give you a dozen examples easy from the above thread where I clarify something. I've also run a few of your short posts through some software I have for testing readability. Yours tend to come out as less readable than mine.
If you happen to be referencing my final use of the term "clarification" in my last post. You would see that I wasn't saying that "I am clarifying" but that I was "asking for clarification" which I seem to be doing.
Also, perhaps it's different where you are but "conciseness" and "clarity" aren't necessarily the same. One, where I am anyway means being brief or removing unnecessary detail. So unless you trivially define "unnecessary" then that doesn't imply "easily understood". I figure that's why people use the phrase "clear and concise" noting the importance of both axes.
Perhaps you're just seeing that I tend to think the world is complex instead of simple.
As I'm most certain
Thankfully that may not mean so much.
Define your version of the Laws of Men. If you can't or refuse to do that, then there is nothing more to say betwixt us.
You get that I've shown almost zero interest in that. Right? So isn't this like saying "Unless you eat a hundred live spiders. The conversation is over."?
Look your many attempts to change the discussion from your poor logic are noted. I know the drill. You're trying to move the battle from a position of weakness to one of strength.
Engaging in verbal intercourse with you is not satisfying. It's shallow meaninglessness.
Huh. In a few lines I sketched out law, it's purpose, the kinds of ways you can measure it's success and the fact that it's required to be complex. I also tried to say how simplicity fits into the mix. Considering you begged all those questions here and in your back-patting thread. I'm not so sure I deserve to be labeled 'shallow'. Also while I admit I have trouble answering questions when you won't define your terms. It was very easy to find questions that you can't answer about your own ideas. Which shows some lack of thinking on your part. Some might call that shallow.
As you so eloquently put it, "unless you're sleeping with me you don't get to say that."
Except the way I used it made some sense.
