Re: 23 Feb 2010 - Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors Who's "we?" I have no use for it. You take it somewhere and get all that use for yourself. An honest "Devil's Advocate" is useful; this is someone who takes the opposing side and argues it with good intention. Even an honestly skeptical contrarian is useful. What is not useful is someone who engages in almost nothing other than nitpicking, fallacious sophistry. Co$ does that just fine for themselves. A poster such as the "Herro" screenname serves no purpose except to expose it for what it is, as an object lesson. The "Herro" account does not advocate opposing positions by putting forth the best argument for that position. The "Herro" account pretends ignorance and uses spurious logic to derail, discourage, and distract. The "Herro" account does not engage in an honest dialectic; it engages in sophistry.
