Then show those horrid pseudoskeptics how it's done. Check it for yourself.

It's Russel's teapot. Q's authenticity is a totally unverifiable claim. Asserted without evidence, or even the chance of collecting evidence, it can be dismissed without evidence.

Bubba, you’re not fooling anyone. At all. You’d get more respect if you simply owned your investment in “Q” claims, rather than this utterly transparent JAQing morality play of yours. Even the thread participants who are unfamiliar with your many previous iterations of the same script see through you.

I have to admit, though, your scolding of other people for their political biases is pretty funny. It’s not really a new plot element, of course, but it’s a nice variation on one of your favorite cliches.

If in fact one cannot know whether or not Q is a hoax, then I would suggest the skeptical viewpoint is that it is thus impossible to know without information from some other source whether or not anything Q says is true, and the only rational action is to base one's judgment only on other sources, since Q is functionally worthless whether true or false.

I do not know what a "pseudoskeptic" is in its usual usage as a construction of credulous right-wingers, but I would suggest that a pseudoskeptic is likely the opposite of that - a person who believes that the very lack of verifiability entitles even the most nonsensical ideas to serious consideration.

Confirmation bias as determining factor and we're the "pseudoskeptics?"

My prediction is that Commandante Boor-O will be saying "good morning" to a judge before any of the individuals in the imaginary indictments will.

There are other definitions as well.


Whats your take on Q ?

Hoax?
Real?
Cannot know ?

Are there other possible answers in addition to those three ?

Agreed.

Among 'other sources'.......

How to know which of 'other sources' are opinion vs fact ?
How to know which can be known to be who they say they are?

Either of those two questions can be tricky.


Q followers seek so called "proofs" of Q authenticity, often around the letter Q being the 17th in the alphabet. Like 17 seconds between posts/tweets made by Q and Trump on a singe topic, sometimes matching words or a matching typo 17 seconds apart (a general example).

They measure Q authenticity in terms of how they can link Q to Trump since they believe Q either is;

* a person or a team working with Trump,

* or Trump himself (maybe with someone taking dictation?)



Lets ask the (now troubled) google for a list of Q proofs:
Search term:
list "proofs" of Q authenticity.

Well my goodness...apparently that number 17 thing is just one of many other types of so called 'proofs'.



Here are #1 and #2 search results...looks like a lot. I haven't read them.

Who else incorrectly assumed the meaning of Q's D5?
Just the people you've been quoting in your posts.
The ones Axxman300 was talking about.
Other than that, absolutely no-one, because no-one cares what the idiots you keep quoting say. They are delusional simpleton s, and not worth the effort.

Thats a very good guess....Makes sense. Try again. Its fairly common, and most appropriate in Q's game.


Q's coding does encourage thinking.
My bet is that it's a reference to this:

https://www.cat.com/en_US/products/n...000001276.html

At least that's what comes to mind for me when the term "D5" is mentioned.

Thinking, anyway.

Years ago a friend let me drive his D9 on old lava, ripping it up for homesites, with the one tooth claw in back. Awesome power.


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The D5 thing was not Dec 5.

D5 referred to a chess move.

At that time Trump was 'playing chess' with some deep state parties.

So which piece moved to D5? Normally it would be indicated, unless perhaps it was the only piece capable of moving there.

The King. You could tell because it was two checkers high.

The D5 is a reference to the mechanical device needed to move the pile of ******** this character has created.

I doubt the Commandante knows how to play checkers, let alone chess.

You forget, he's the smartest person anywhere. Just ask him. He knows how to play chess, he just plays with his gut. He always takes their Pointy guy with his Horsie. And then gets a chance to spin the wheel to start the Mouse Trap.

Either of those two questions can be tricky.
Neither question is tricky in any way.

Credible stories are confirmed by a minimum of three independent sources. If the reporter is lucky there are also official documents too.

Opinion is easy to spot even when presented in the body of a news story (and yes, even a good reporter can slant a news story).

Fox News does this all the time using these key phrases:

Experts tell us/Experts say

People say

Research shows

Survey's say

No source or names are ever cited, and these phrases are used to paint the story with false credibility.

This is different than slating a story. The best example I can think of came from a local newspaper back in the 1970's after another fire on Cannery Row where they quoted the usual fire department and police sorces, but also quoted a pair of "onlookers" who were watching the fire from down the block. These onlookers were local "business men", and they said things like "hate to see the old place go up like this", followed by "good thing nobody was hurt though". The fire wasn't out when they made their statement to the reporter, how would they know they building was empty? If you can read you know what the slant to this story is, and the newspaper and reporter are covered because they didn't come right out and point a finger.

The fire was arson, and nobody was ever arrested for it BTW.

Which is crap. We see this with every conspiracy theory from UFO's to the Illuminati.

Trump can't count to 17.

Actually possible. Q is a moron.

Bubba, time to bust out your skeptic prowess and take it for a spin:

If Q's predictions continue to be inaccurate, why would the identity of Q matter?

Of course there are sort of other answers, in that Q could be partly true and partly false, which is a little different ontologically from the third option, though not practically. Or it could be false not from intentional hoaxing but through error and stupidity, which is a little different in some way from the options given but practically not.

But my take on Q is what I just said above: if (as you contend, in case you've forgotten doing it or decided to disavow it) you can't know, then it doesn't matter anyway. A prophecy you can't trust until it's too late is inherently worthless.

Qanon is so silly, it employs the world's dumbest (and most awkward) catchphrase:

"Where we go one, we go all."

Not only is it nonsensically stupid, the idiot authors couldn't be bothered to come up with something that at least would make a catchy acronym. To top it off, the moronic followers don't even realize the phrase makes them look like the sheep they think they are not. When Q tugs the rings in their noses, they heave to.

I am a reformed CTist, but I still allow myself a guilty pleasure.

Crazy Days & Nights:

https://www.crazydaysandnights.net/

It is a cryptic Hollywood gossip site run by a Hollywood entertainment lawyer and his friends. How it works is they post between 12 and 15 Blind Items every day with five or six Blind Items Revealed.

A blind item from today is:


Quote:
Blind Item #10
I'm not sure why you expected someone who is an admitted child molester to change. This former reality star all of you know and not on MTV was spending time with a young family member and was caught doing what he did before. Nothing will happen to him though. Just like nothing happened before.
The commenters on this site are sharp.

A blind item revealed from today:

Quote:
Blind Items Revealed #2
December 6, 2018

This former A+ list mostly movie actor is in even worse financial shape than previously imagined. He took out loans using what he thought would be the payment for the next installment of a franchise. When that fell through, the bank forced him to sell property and personal items to pay off the loan.

Johnny Depp
The rules of this website are clear; some of the stuff they post is readily available on other Hollywood gossip sites, some of the stories are exclusive, and some of the posts are fiction.

The site is addictive because they reveal enough to keep you guessing about the some of the other stories they post. I allow myself to waste time on this site because it is harmless. Still, you can find Qanon dorks in the comments section every once in a while.

Anyway, this is how to run a CT website.
