Accusations of "Ad Hominem" and "Strawman".

Strawman is always a favourite. It's so easy to misinterpret what someone says, and talk at crossed purposes, and so easy to assume it was deliberate. Human language doesn't really lend itself to completely unambiguous expression so it would be nice if people would give each other the benefit of the doubt and invite them to explain themselves instead of breaking out the philosophical assault weapons.

As if anyone could think this was a serious metaphysical debate. It's about whether the Amiga or Megadrive version of a game is the better, if we can't handle that without being overcome by rage I don't know what hope there is for peace in the world.
