Bill, I consider intellectual dishonesty to be a foul, and a very
serious one. I get particularly annoyed when I feel my valuable time is
being wasted by it. If Richard wants to convince me that he is
interested in understanding any other view than his own, he is welcome
to try, but the impression I've been getting for a long time now is that
he participates here for no other reason than to defend his own
position, and that he uses intellectually dishonest tactics to do so.
He may not be fully aware that he is doing so -- some self-deception may
be involved -- but I don't get the impression he's the sort of person
who often doesn't know what he's doing.
