I am on FFL and I do have doubts that turq is a poseur. Just to answer Judy's assertion that not anyone on FFL doubts that he has membership in that category.

Actually, no, no more than anyone else expressing their opinion. Barry's doing the same thing in this post.

Barry's getting very, VERY confused as to which posts of his I commented on, and why. HINT: It wasn't any of the posts he refers to above. Remember now which ones they were, Barry? Barry edits his own memories such that he doesn't remember that virtually everything he criticizes others for doing is stuff that he himself does routinely. > By now some of you must have figured out the formula. > - First, pretend to be the "authority" in matters such as this, > whatever "this" may be this time. > - Second, pretend to "know" what the person you're ragging > on was thinking and feeling as they wrote whatever she's > ragging on. > - Third, pretend that everyone already agrees with you. > > Do this enough times, and science tells us that some of the > weak-willed ones *will* agree with you. Yup, that's what Barry's hoping when he does what he attributes to me above. He doesn't just accuse his critics of doing things he has done, he accuses them of doing what he's doing as he makes his accusations. It's really quite remarkable. When he goes on one of these rants, he is actually describing himself and just changing the names and pronouns. And he doesn't realize it. That's how little self-knowledge he has. The three items he lists above are not only the formula he uses, they're the formula he's using to tell you what my purported formula is.
