• What is it with the abusi

    they're to lazy to look shit up for themselves, and when you give them a legi
    link they never go to that link.

    Or they drop it, then wait a couple of weeks, bring it back up again and
    ask you to provide proof (again).

    Unfortunately, Denn really doesn't pay any attention to detail that doesn't fit his narrative, and he seems to be part of the "dO YoUr oWn ReSeArCh!" crowd.

    It's due to him not wanting to be ridiculed for his terrible sources. Here's the best quote about these types I've seen:

    "If you're a rational thinker and you believe you have a source that makes a good point, you'll simply link that source directly, and maybe even explain how it supports the thing you believe. However, if you're a conspiracy theorist who only has bad sources that can be easily disproven, you'll become wary about linking to those sources directly or trying to explain what they mean to you, lest someone in the discussion completely blow your argument apart and laugh at you.

    That's why the imperative appeal to "do your own research" has developed - whether intentional or not, it's a tailor-made strategy to protect bad sources from criticism. By telling people to do their own research rather than being up front about your sources and arguments, you try to push people into learning about the topic you want them to internalize while there are no dissenting voices present. It's a tactic that separates discussion zones from "research" zones, so that "research" can't be interrupted by reality.

    People who actually have good points with good sources don't need to do this. It's only the people who are clinging onto bad, debunkable sources that need to vaguely tell people to "do their own research"."

    Yeah, I can remember when most men were not like that.
