He's just back to his old tricks.

I'm sorry. Could you make that shorter? I have a hard time reading long articles.

Re: This would be the same

I haven't been responding to Deesy's critiques because recent experience shows them to be attempts to stir the pot, not really attempts at discussion. Unfortunately his obsessive attempts to win rather than honest discussion seem to frequently lead to closed threads. Note that this not a response to his points, he would dismiss my complaint as ad homenim(sp?) some of which have merit, such as why some parties might not be supportive. (Consider reviewers slanted response to past nook products and manufacturers, retailers, unhappiness with microsoft offering products competing with theirs, while still reliant on their puurchase of OS for other products the rationale.) Microsofts investment was reflective of nook perceived value at that time and has little relevence now. It would be apprececiated if Deesy would offer more on what his views are instead of his apparently self appointed role criitquing are offerings.

Re: This would be the same

An ad hominem (Latin for "to the man" or "to the person"), short for argumentum ad hominem, is an argument made personally against an opponent instead of against their argument.  Ad hominem reasoning is normally described as an informal fallacy, more precisely an irrelevance.

Those last two words sum it up for me.
