Just amazing. I thought it was vandalism and nobody'd noticed the title of the page, but I go back through the history, and it's RobS' show all the way. Probably the most childish smear of the New Deal I've ever seen. --Kels 22:46, 26 May 2007 (CDT)

Yeah, I've tried to be careful about only criticizing things sysops are directly involved with, where I can at lesat demonstrate that they've read the material, even if they didn't write it originally. And as you said, in this case it's all RobS. --jtltalk 23:01, 26 May 2007 (CDT)

Is this what they call "baffle 'em with bullshit"? --Kels 07:12, 28 May 2007 (CDT)

So, is the term "New Ordeal" just a smear of the "New Deal?" That is what RobS is trying to communicate? Flippin;-) 12:01, 29 May 2007 (CDT)
Apparently. This dishonest debating tactic seems to have become a favourite of RobS.
  • Make an outlandish claim.
  • When called on it, claim there are many references.
  • Provide references that do not back up the topic, often many.
  • When challenged, insist that you've already answered.
  • If opposition persists, claim that the matter has been settled, referring back to previous instance of the same refusal to provide backup.
You can see it being used to good effect in conjunction with blocking power here and here. Note that in neither case, nor the previous conversation referred to, was the outlandish claim ever backed up. --Kels 12:05, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

I think it is encouraging that we were referenced in the discussion on cp. Does anyone know how to get in touch with cp:User:Franklin to get him over here?--PalMD-yada yada 12:12, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

From his comments, it sounds like he acknowldged we're here. Up to him to follow it further, I guess. --Kels 12:59, 29 May 2007 (CDT)
