I think you'll find you brought up climate change denial as a phrase first, and have stuck with it repeatedly throughout.
Yes I used the specific phrase first, but you sarcastically implied it right from your first post. You moan about pedantry and nuance, but here you are doing the exact thing you object to. But at least you're talking about words I actually used this time... that's progress.
You try and make out you're the one open to dialogue, yet shut any disagreement down immediately with insults and jibes.
Where? I responded to your "bait taken" jibe in kind and maybe the odd similar remark, but you'll have to highlight where I've used insults or mockery to reply to your debating points rather than giving my own opinion back. That despite nearly every post from you containing some little dig at my character rather than my words:
"No, it's just there's no point debating things with you."
"Unless someone explicitly lists every case you cherry pick your arguments to single stats."
"But that doesn't fit your agenda, so you'll simply point to a single event and declare it a single event."
"Thought that much was obvious, should have remembered you can't do interpretation, nuance etc: spelled out in black and white only for RTT."
"Like I said: not worth bothering entering discussion."
"and it's an example so don't get too bogged down on that - I know you find that hard."
" Your opinion is set and you're more interested in finding tiny holes than having an open minded discussion."
"You're bonkers mate."
"I really wonder what your motivation is, and currently I'm pretty surprised you haven't joined the flat earthers."
It's up to you if you want to own those comments and accept they make you exactly what you're complaining about. I don't believe you can make a similar case against me, I don't think I aimed anything at you until after you crossed a line in offensiveness by saying I was in favour of exploiting workers and putting kids down mines. But I apologise if you've taken something the wrong way.
