So you're saying adding an additional point or comment that's not necessarily related to any other detail you've mentioned but is related to the topic is not allowed? Please point me to the set of rules for discussion on Blue's News so I can get it right next time.

You're allowed to use any logical fallacy you want, just don't expect anyone to take your argument seriously.

Again -- you with the whole black and white thing. I never said it was a dumb idea. I've said from the start that I encourage people exercising their right to free speech and right to assemble. This is a special interest group and there's nothing wrong with that.

And again with the not being able to read thing. I didn't say you said it was a dumb idea, I said you made a post agreeing with someone who said it was a dumb idea.

By the time I jumped in on the thread, it had already gone beyond GaymerCon. I disagree with the idea that drawing a line and making a bunch of noise to establish the fact that you are different, as the gay community is still doing, is an effective means of accomplishing social change or enhancing rights.

Ok, so you don't think GaymerCon is a dumb idea, but you think that establishing that you are different - which is exactly what GaymerCon does - is a dumb idea. And you wonder why you're being perceived as inconsistent.

Childish would be 'you're ugly and your mother dresses you funny'. I can't possibly know that.

I still think you're a fucking idiot, and that's based on an opinion I've formed of you. Not childish, just my observation.

Having to resort to insults in an attempt to bolster your position is childish, regardless of what rationalization you use for them.

Not to mention, of course, that it's blatantly against the forum rules - or are you going to claim you need those rules pointed out to you too?

Glad to keep you entertained. The fact that in your last response none of your points had anything to do with the thread topic tells me you do want to find a reason to argue.

This from the guy who was chastising me earlier for making the assumption that he was talking on-topic... What was your response again? Oh, yes, "I was responding to your generalizations, which were in response to discussions that strayed off topic. Feel free to keep it on topic."

If you don't take me seriously, why do you continue to respond anyway?

Sometimes I get trolled successfully I guess. I'll have to work on that.
