Talk:Poe Paradox

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Actually I wonder if it should be called "Poe Paradox", since Poe did not formulate it. It is a paradox based on Poe... ħumanUser talk:Human 16:46, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

Should this be expressed more generally, or is it appropriate to leave it as specific to CP?--Damo2353 17:02, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
Yes, and yes. The "original" should stay is it is, but a well-written more generalized version should be presented first one we work it out. ħumanUser talk:Human 17:31, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
I would tend to agree that this should be "The Poe Paradox" rather than "Poe's Paradox", for the same reason. It's basically a logical consquence of Poe's Law The Lay Scientist 19:11, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

Generalization[edit]

I had a go at generalizing it... feel free to criticize :) The Lay Scientist 19:07, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

I moved it. I also removed the link to your blog, since you coined it here, not there. If I am wrong, feel free to add an EL to where you discuss it there... ħumanUser talk:Human 19:42, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
Fair enough... now I'll have to upgrade my user page to something more befitting the man who came up with the Poe Paradox :S The Lay Scientist 21:40, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
Absolutely! ħumanUser talk:Human 22:49, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
