Magic Uprights

Whether it involves changing the rules midstream to provide oneself a “hit” or your opponent a “miss”, this emblem is attached to a Chamber comment that “moves the goal posts” in a debate.

For a generic example:

Netizen A claims X is true.  Netizen B claims X is false.  When confronted with overwhelming evidence that supports Netizen A’s argument, Netizen B insists X doesn’t matter because of Y.  (argument might then shift to debate validity of Y)

  2. That is awesome


  3. The perfect award for Red Tulips 🙂


  4. Hi Sphinx!

    Where exactly have you ‘won’ any arguments? When you lose arguments you storm out in a huff and stop responding, or censor me.

    Sad.

    I have yet to see you decry the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, or Hizballah. Not once. I still await this.

    I no longer will claim you go to a Muslim Brotherhood mosque, but I do claim this; you blame and blame others for the ‘indignities’ you and other Muslims suffer while taking responsibility for NOTHING.

    Sad.

    Unless and until you start to criticize the very organizations that cause ‘Islamophobia’ I will continue to see you (and others like you) as Muslimophobes and Antisemites. I said before you do not hate Jews; I take that back.

    You have shown your true colors.


  5. Testing…

    :Twisted:


  6. You know, if winning arguments involves throwing a violent fit in almost every comment section and indulging in massive hysteria while debating with anyone who even slightly disagrees with your political position, repeating age-old, bogus and backward-logic arguments that have been refuted long ago, constantly disregarding everything the others say, practically living on strawman arguments and attributing a false position to the opponent based on one’s pure imagination, and continuously proselytizing everybody around you to get them to blindly support your cause, then yes. You really have won every single argument so far. Congratulations.

    Ah right, I should be ignoring you. Silly me.


  7. LOL You guys are still going at it?


  8. Remarkable, isn’t it 🙂 I’m trying to end it though, because it’s really getting old, and apparently I hate Jews now and want them all dead, all of a sudden. Or at least that’s what she’s trying to convince me of.

    Sorry if this has been a nuisance so far.


  9. Actually I think it’s pretty entertaining, which is why I dedicated that thread to you guys a little while back. 🙂

    For a minute I though this was posted about Tex.
    Nail on the head right there…
