Subj: No, it's just that its easier to start small fires than to put them out, which seems to be your modus operandi

Reply Subj: This seems an awful lot like a dodge.

    LGDB: I explain the difference to you early on in the thread. I was never saying it was an issue of fact versus opinion. My point has always been about what your opinion is characterizing: your feelings and preferences vs the quality of the writing.

This is splitting hairs. As I mentioned in a previous debate on this exact same issue, a writer could hit every mark in terms of literary composition and 99% of people could still dislike it. Does that qualify as good or bad writing?

Your criteria is subjective, thus what you're asking me to satisfy is an illusion.

    And let's be perfectly clear: when you provide evidence for something it has to be ACTUAL evidence.

Jesus Christ...

Evidence to fit WHAT criteria?

    you showing me multiple links where you don't do that

Now you're being totally absurd.

    and then me saying yeah that's not really you substantiating anything isn't moving the goal post.

Of course it is. Whenever I meet one of your criteria for 'a backed up opinion', you add another qualifier that I must meet. That's moving the goal post. Your original point of contention bears no resemblance to your current one. You added those because I kept answering your challenges; starting more fires for me to put out.

    It's arguing you haven't gotten to the goal post.

Which is what? Evidence to satisfy which criteria? What is your end goal? I am willing to bet you can't answer the above challenge.

    LGDB: I agree, I meant the strongest one.

So you agree that a critical opinion is the sum of the criticism and not the pieces, then you ask me for pieces. Do I have that correct?
