such an assertion without explanation is meaningless to me. it does not inform. rather it just expressess rwg. have fun with that.
You almost always talk about something of your own which is not what I am talking about. Good luck with your #personal_walled_garden!
hmmm ... well doubtlessly that is true ... but is it not always the case with any actual conversation?
what i claim i do is first try to understand what you are saying ... then my response will be what my peculiar perspective has to inform what you actually said.
i have no idea why that should annoy you.
Not true. You most always do not inform me of what I actually said. Still in delusion! You at best tell me what ran through your mind ABOUT what I said.
Mark, how does "first try to understand what you are saying" get twisted into "inform me of what I actually said". You could try to understand what i actually do say before you twist it into something entirely different. No, i do not try to parrot back to you what you say ... rather i try to understand it myself ... then my response is to inform you of something else ... of to ... err ... contribute to the train of thought. If i don't understand what you said, then i usually try to ask about it, or if i suspect it is destructive to my own trains, will just ignore it. If i just understood, and then regurgitated it back to you, of what use is that?
Really, of what use is that?
