And if I'd simply declared that you didn't believe Feste, you'd have expressed 
even more faux outrage about that. At least I allowed for two possibilities. 
(Interesting that you haven't said which is the case.) 

 No, it doesn't create a "barrier to finding the truth," nor is it a matter of 
a debating tactic or "forked tongues." Don't be ridiculous. 

 As far as tongues are concerned, though, yours is more like a whole tree with 
the branches all tangled up. That does create a "barrier to finding the truth."

 << Judy, imo this is one of the strategies you use in an argument that creates 
a barrier to finding the truth. To say what I don't believe and then to negate 
your statement may be a clever debating tactic. But it brings to my mind the

 Like Stevie, Feste, your worst flaw is your moral cowardice.

 Was wondering when you'd barge in, Feste. But like Stevie, either you can't 
tell the difference between a good argument and a bad one, or you feel you have 
to support Share and oppose me just on general principles even when she's 
wrong. And like Stevie, you're incapable of actually participating in the

 Share, if you don't mind me saying, you had her tied up loops like we haven't 
seen a while.  Really, you feel kind of bad for her.  Or at least I do.
