VSE on Discord, lying about the reasoning for relegation (he omitted the flaming he did) and misuing the term "simpler":
Doesn't it seem like it would have been simpler to ask a follow-up question instead of relegating me to a single channel?
i did ask a followup question. they're so bad at engaging with words. i said:
are you going to answer my simple, direct question or not?
this was both 1) a followup 2) a question
there's still something amazing to me about how much they retreat from English meanings of words
i think it's related to retreat from reality in genreal and social metaphysics. standard dictionary English has strong connections to reality.
but they operate in a social reality with social metaphysics, not in real reality. so they use words in a different way that is much less tied to reality, facts, logic, dictionaries, etc, and more tied to social rules and social meanings
i think their inability and/or unwillingness to read literally or to resolve any of these factual disputes is an indication of just how second-handed and social climbing they are. that's what the basic thing at issue is. how do you approach life, do you focus on facts/etc or on social dynamics?
