Iceman's three strikes rule
    #4264986 - 06/06/05 08:52 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Icelander: "You have to ask him three times, as per the unwritten rules of debate in S&P. If he skips the third, he concedes the point."

Should we formally add this to the S&P consitution?

The proof is in the pudding.

Well it sure would make things more interesting IMO. To duck is to choose to lose. :thumbup: :mushroom2:

If he's responding and skipping it, then sure, but if he's not responding we must assume in his favor and make the presumption that he hasn't read it yet and will respond later. But what if much time has elapsed and he has not responded to any of the askings of the question?

To duck is to chose to lose? Does this apply for all ducks? I thought ducks know the difference between chose and lose

Well if this post is directed to me. Yes I will fight. It's a nasty habit though. Should be used as a last resort. I would rather see the common ground if it can be found. I have a long way to go on this though.  :grin: :heart:

There would have to be a time limit for calling someone on the three strike rule. But they could answer at any later date and cancel the awfull shame. :grin:

What about a reply that is a non-answer? That is a favorite tactic among those who have painted themselves into the proverbial corner.

Reply that isn't an answer after the 3rd attempt = point conceded

Not so much to be done about that. Still any logical person will see the tactic and the point will be won. At least this will stop the non answer. I find that the most irritating. A stupid answer doesn't bother me that much. Usually I was expecting it. :grin: :mushroom2:

I dont see any good that can come out of this rule. All it would take is one person to go on some tangent, and within that , make some illusory connection between topic and rant, then ask a question completly irrelevant to topic, then if you dont answer them, or attempt to steer the thread back to topic, you are considered forfeiting your point?
If you are going to make a rule like this (which on the surface I like) then you will soon be making more rules to regulate this rule.

Well I never really intended it as a rule when I said it. It was a joke between me and Swami. Still I like to envoke it without it being official. I really just want to use it with Swami. :grin:

You are most likely right. More trouble than it's worth.

maybe we need to make a S&P Constitution which will be drafted, and rectified by the First United National Governing Institution of Intellectuals (FUNGII) meeting.
Kind of like the U.N. of the S&P... where we can establish rules and guidelines of proper debate, but we will need also, an S&P supreme Court, which would be 9 elected (fuck appointing) people who could deliberate and decide on worthy cases such as case-to-case instances of ad hominem abuse or ducking of questions; they could also dole out punishment/consequences if found guilty of said debate crime.

lets start making nominations!

Also, the FUNGII should consist of no more than 25 people, and one person cannot be a member of the Supreme S&P Court and the FUNGII at the same time.

This forum is for discussion, and while it is competitive, I don't think of it as actual competition.

Organize a bunch of stoned-out trippers or tripped-out stoners? Good luck! :lol:
