So a personal attack from a mod on a poster? That's an interesting approach.
If that was a personal attack then I'll go he!
You know what people are entitled to their views even if it's incorrect.
Yes they are entitled to their views, even if incorrect.
What they are not entitled to do is to present the opinion as fact! Especially, to continue to present that opinion as fact even after it been proven as incorrect.
a: The statement was made "these articles only come out when the All Blacks lose". This purports to be and is presented as a statement of fact
b: I refuted the statement and posted an article of the same nature (criticising the referee) which was published after a match which the All Blacks won, probably due to a poor refereeing decision.
c: Therefore the original statement has bee proven false!
d: the poster continues to post the statement as fact, even after they have been proven incorrect. That makes them a liar (knowingly making a false statement).
