1. What what you doing at age 21?

2. What is your favorite appetizer?

3. What is on your wish list for the holidays (yes, something material)?

You have spent months on her arguing with her approach to dealing with her own illness, Jambles. That is telling her she's doing it wrong. Please.

Jams, there is no apology needed. I explained how your argument comes across, how it is perceived by others. If that is not how you want to be perceived, you should consider changing or adjusting your argument.

Ok, apologies aren't your style then.  The next time you want to assume what others don't understand please prove it.  You don't like warm and fuzzies, I get that, Fine, But don't change that in others.   No, I won't change the way I debate.

Your choice entirely, of course.

The only way you can prove you understand something is to demonstrate that you do. Since you keep demonstrating the opposite, that's what people are going to perceive and assume. You can't go around shouting "X! X! X!" And then protest that you really meant "Not X!," that people owe you an apology for not knowing that. That's completely irrational.

You can't tell my position in a debate Jambles? Why is that? I'm pretty clear about what I stand for. Sometimes it's a little more nuanced than "X" or "Not X," but that is life. Not always simple. As for the way I think, yes, I do like to take in as much information as possible, process it, and then form an opinion. If I've got some facts wrong, I'm happy to adjust my conclusions on the basis of new and better data.

Actually, lack of sincerity and empathy is demonstrated a lot here. Like mops wrongly accusing me of calling her anorexic too in a debate that wasn't about her to begin with, Yea it's fair to say apologies aren't her style.   I can't tell your position, I think you take a lot in digest and spit out what "looks" real, You're too funny bord, Lol.

Yea you do do that.  I don't know if that's to make yourself look better or an admission that your opinions are limited to your own experiences, You're this big mystery to me bord!   o_0

How, in reading that, do you come to the conclusion that my opinions are limited to my own experiences? That is not the case. Just like everyone else, I read, listen to other people who have experienced things I have not, and take in information however I can and then process it and weigh one thing against another, etc. Is there some better way of forming opinions?
