Memory solves nothing
You know how you're arguing with someone and they'll start contradicting themselves or denying having said such and such? Often I'm able to give verbatim or near-verbatim quotes from them, since this is often only thirty seconds after they said it, but sometimes I can't and never will they admit to having said it.
For a while I was thinking I should carry around an audio recorder for such situations.
I don't know what the heck I was thinking with that idea. If you've ever argued with the run-of-the-mill Internet user, you know having an irrefutable log of the entire conversation sitting right there on the screen is meaningless. They'll deny ever having made c/p'd quotes, or claim it means something else entirely. I few minutes ago someone said to me
I meant that if it required 6 million Jews to be killed and many more to be starved and be sent to concentration camps for the creation of Israel, then how the hell does it only take 3.5 hours of abuse for one girl to get 6.1 million USD., deny linking the p and q, and then ask me
Er, how is it a if p then q? when I reposted the quote.
Gee, I don't know. Maybe because it says 'IF p THEN q'?
Contrary to what one might think, these people aren't trolls, and they don't suffer from lack of memory. They're just beyond all reason.
