I'm not sorry that I hold standards over arguments, and criticize people when they fail to meet my standards.
Beyond that, I'm no moderator and hold no power on this forum in any form. Everyone can ignore me if they wish, and I'm pretty sure this forum's software have "ignore lists" if people really find me that annoying.
Regardless, I honestly do care about improving the quality of discussion and I have no apologize for having those standards. The Primary / Secondary source thing is what I've learned from my social studies class to help figure out the quality of sources. I expect that other people who have studied humanities to some degree to be familiar with the concept. Indeed, I'd expect someone who really
studied the humanities to actually be better than it than I am, since this sort of stuff is outside of my area of study. I'm not the arbiter
. I just wish for people to understand these concepts so that we have better discussions in this arena.
Obviously, I recognize the fact that you don't appreciate my contributions to discussions. Your opinion of me has been noted several times in the past, and I'm cool with that.
