I am a bit surprised that he cannot even try to summarize the gist of his argument within a post or two for the purposes of an Opening Statement. Were this an oral debate, or perhaps worse, a Yahoo chat room, he would have to be more parsimonious in his presentation. Or would his presentation in Yahoo have been a six-hour straight zerg-post of massive volumes of material?
I'm not going to imply plagiarism since he hasn't posted anything yet, but I think I should probably expect the mother of all Gish Gallops. But whatever it is, I do hope he'll post it, then
crow about how wonderful it is, rather than the reverse this time.
I am curious about the "hit list" thing. It seems to be the reason his post was so massive. Did he consume a bunch of space in this to rebut each and every poster in this thread or something?
I thought he meant that when he was done "defeating" me, he'd challenge everybody else, one by one or in groups, and whup them all. Given his difficulties with throwing his first punch however, I'm not sure how he'd manage that. But I suppose it's possible he's trying to do rebut everybody at once. If so, I declare a right to ignore rebuttals to other posters if I choose to and address myself to positive arguments for the KCA and rebuttals addressed to my points.
