The inconsistency is mockable, not the quality.


EXACTLY THIS.
obviously a bit too nuanced and sophisticated for Bill and his fellow travellers to appreciate.

Don’t. It’s a dying field, now that we’ve mostly renounced helping the State to control the Natives.

If you cannot tolerate viewpoints which contradict your own, then perhaps you should avoid those subjects.


Bill posts this type of thing so often, you’d think he actually believes it.
But, of course, his actions show the exact opposite.
Nobody ever reads the fine print.

Already been done by a young lady from Florianópolis. And I’m sure by various people in English.

Better advice is to avoid tmp entirely.

I think Bill enjoys the equanimity of the truly stupid. He really believes he is open minded.

He’s always right.
He sees no contradiction.

It actually happens a lot. It's one of the things that alerts you to the probability of plagiarism.

well, realistically speaking, it doesn't. No one is going to issue him with a fine. It's the GDPR equivalent of re-casting figures made by some long-dead company, in the knowledge nobody is going to give a shit about it even if you do get found out, and you are in a different country to boot.

Isn't that right **** ?
