You didn't really even try though. I would have appreciated it if you (and, for that matter, others) had tried harder and had more sources than:

  • Personal incredulity and
  • "But that's science fiction."


I presented neither of those as a source.


Yes, you did, as with the vacuous comment you made about My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. My posts on the other hand have by and large been full of references to actual sources that support my claims. This is another area where you need improvement.

I was talking, among other things, about how people were hostile to me for having been right and having made correct predictions about a social and political event—if you're curious, it was whether the Dakota Access Pipeline would be constructed—and also for having unusual political beliefs. You are now doing what will most likely become more of the same at some point in the future. Do you have some understanding of why people treat me like garbage now? They just can't countenance the "fascist nerd" being right (and, to be quite honest, yeah, a lot of my thinking is pretty fascist). In some sense, this digression into "potential developments in human society" has been entirely germane to your question.

Give examples.

Nothing I said was in bad faith.

Obviously I know everything about British cinema and can infer the true intent of any quip of that nature without failure.
