    Which YOU just did and I just finished reading. I never claimed to know the ins and outs of the treaty. I was legitimately asking.

    hio there Seano,

    i'm very settled, my friend.

    in general, IGIT is too high to get agitated.

    i apologize for my swipe at you, it was uncalled for. i wasn't even trying to be insulting, i was just making an observation.

    keep asking questions, all is well and good, Seano!

    I think there's legitimately people who do the "what, I'm just asking questions here" thing to passive-aggressively speak their mind. But there just as big of a problem with everyone around here trying to "gotcha!" people for the likes. Happened to me the other day because I said something about some nerdy YouTube celebrity.

    hi there Shoemaker,

    the only nit i was picking with Seano was that all his queries and skepticism seemed to lean in one direction.

    it seems less like an inquiry and more like a passive aggressive (to use your wording) way of framing a debate point. i have a friend who does this "who me? i'm just asking questions" routine all the time on me.

    ya know?

    It's called Sea Lioning.

    Sea lioning (also spelled sealioning and sea-lioning) is a type of Internet trolling which consists of bad-faith requests for evidence, or repeated questions, the purpose of which is not clarification or elucidation, but rather an attempt to derail a discussion or to wear down the patience of one's opponent.


    That was @oledirtybasta4d's deal as well. But, he finally got banned.

    I also learned it from Quipling. At least I think it was him. There was an old-timey comic that went with it.

    It's kind of different from what I was talking about. There's asking questions in bad faith to derail the conversation, and then there's asking questions in order to suggest an idea that otherwise wouldn't be suggested.

    As an example, asking a question like "Are illegal immigrants cutting off heads in the New Mexican desert?" when it's not a topic is all about putting an idea in peoples heads, not necessarily derailing an existing discussion. I'd actually call it "Bachmanning", since it's pretty close to her patented "I don't know but some people are saying...".

    See, he's one of the guys I would give no intellectual credit for the things he does. I knew him from strength & conditioning before he started posting here. He's just that dumb.

    Christian Zionists think America should do what is good for Israel, because according to the their dogma: God blesses those who bless Israel and God destroys those who hurt Israel. How much of this is just posturing and how much is genuine sentiments held amongst the Christian Zionists - I don't know.

    A lot of Trump's support is the Alt-Right, and they can't stand Israeli influence on America, and broadly the Jewish influence on open-borders, multiculturalism, diversity, anti-racism, gay lobby etc..The conservative grassroots didn't go for the evangelical candidates, they went for Trump, so that tells me the GOP grassroots is not that enamored with Israel .

    Of course, deuterium is a hot commodity in weapon development. Whether or not Iran could convert it is another thing. But rules are rules and they went over. Not enough to break the deal but it still violates terms and deserved the warning
