I have been debating and trying to explain things online for two decades, in newsgroups, forums and web sites. I came relatively late to the blog, and it requires learning new techniques.
My main interest is in the arguments that people use, including the use of spin in trying to influence debates. I hope to concentrate on looking at the ideas and arguments behind the things I read and hear. Mostly they will be bad ideas and arguments, but perhaps there will be some good ones too.
The title of this blog is inspired by this.
