HOWARDSTERN, 1) Your opinions are not against the rules as someone managed to post the very same opinions and back it with evidence. 2) Because if you don't then why should we believe you, many people don't provide evidence and thus many will ask them "why should we believe that?" at which point there argument is revealed to be null. The way you distributed your opinion was not in argument form but in inflammatory pictures, fearing retaliation or at the very least total ignoral of you topic that I think needs to be discussed intellectually, I close your thread. When others post computer generated pic of Bush snorting smack and saying "look at him snort smack, re-elect a drugy?", I'll delete that to. Your stating the truth without evidence and appealing to imagery was pretty bad statement. Sorry it is not true until you prove it true, and based on your imagery you have a lot to prove. If you want to learn how to make proper arguments I recommend readings on critical reasoning skills and fallacies, general philosophy also helps. Your link must be broken because, unless you think the whole subforum supports your statement?
