Unbelievably creepy site. You write an email -- and they post it to the forum without permission!!!!
They FORCE YOU to REGISTER, in order to react to this action by them!!! A lot of mind games going on here. You have to "agree to have your beliefs challenged" (register) just to post that you didn't authorize this post!!! Well I don't agree to have my beliefs challenged because I had no interest in any of this.
The post of this email to them, was that there are obvious false arguing techiques (they are obvious & they are well aware of them & don't need to be pointed out in order to make what WAS THE POINT) ... simply that someone without bias against their views, can see the smoke screen methods.
The point isn't to debate that there are or aren't smoke screens. The site developers know that (one can assume since they are glaring).... the point was to let them know that this person is saying so.
Interestingly, it's that "having a voice" that was the drive to write. And sure enough, they shut that voice down with dishonesty. When you get an email, you can ignore, or answer. You have NO right to shove it elsewhere & say "go tell your brother instead." In that situation, we can all see that it's a shut down, a belittling of one's voice.
Requring connection & agreement, in order to post anything in response to their response (of posting it here) --- is even more manipulative.
I don't care about the "exists or doesn't or has this or that powers" topics. The TOPIC I was writing about was the "making voiceless" and the belittling that comes from pretending to be a better thinker, while using dishonest comments. In every textual quote, they put in assumptions that aren't there, to go with the accurate bits they use. That's glaring. If you can't see it -- that's not my problem. I was writing to the site's authors. They KNOW it -- and don't need me to point it out.
As a matter of fact, they know it so well, that they were afraid to treat my email (or anyone's) with honesty, and either answer them, or ignore them, and to write what they will do, where they have their email address. Posting it, without pre-warning, is a statement of dishonest intent...
I've asked them to remove this entire forum entry, that I didn't post & didn't give permission for. If they are respectful of other people, including their well being & feelings -- they will remove it. If they don't -- (and likely will remove only my entry here) -- they are making a statement about themselves.
I hope removal happens. I have no need for this to be here, my words included.
