Re: PRR Boxcars (ad hominem)


I've actually found that on this list questions, even putatively dumb
ones, are well respected, for the most part. It's answers, or factual
statements, that are subject to gunplay. So, there's a simple
rhetorical trick: If you don't want to be in the shootout, take
anything you imagine to be a factual statement and craft into a
question, or call it a speculative statement in need of verification.
Then throw it up in the air and stand back. It works, I think. ;-)
