    No JAG, it is not simple. It is: say whatever you want to ascribe (hawa mein teer), other party has the 'option' to refute the ascription, you then give a 'reason' for the teer. Net-net: you say what you want to say, other party "defends", and something of the teer sticks after all.

    It is not simple. Rather, it becomes a drag and muddies the discussion when one has to simultaneously keep sorting such basic stuff as 'please do not ascribe what was not said.'

    Watson discussion started off in Snippet. It flowed over to Gabfest. Everyone who wants to is sharing their opinions about it. No claims staked, no burdens of explaining, no burdens of rejoinder, no you-first's. Just a random order sharing of random opinions.

    You have some opinions to share, and those will vary on intent, fine. Ask for the intent, directly. Intent, if any, might be provided.

    To show that considerable time was spent in trying to understand the risks/scenarios, you share one specific reason you came up with and say that is hard to buy?

    JAG: why do want XYZ?
    Surely it cannot be because of ABC.
    Rihana: How can u say I want ABC?
    JAG: Ok u dont .So why do u want XYZ?
    While (1){
    Rihana: How can u say I want ABC?
    JAG: Ok u dont .So why do u want it then?
    If( intent)
    break;
    }
    letsdiscuss(intent)

    PS: IF gabfest is not the right thread to discuss I am willing to go elsewhere.

    "miffed" = slightly annoyed. Miffed at the no-negative-watson rule is just that: a mild annoyance at the rule.

    When I said 'i was miffed' there was honestly no intent as such for asking to allow negative-watsons. I just thought the rule was not needed. Watson thread OP had a different opinion, and that is the one that applies as he is OP. That is all. He said 'no negative watsons please'. Later, when discussing devil's advocate/kaliyuga narada, I said that i was a little miffed at the rule.

    I honestly don't have any intent for suggesting/asking that negative watsons be allowed. 'more than a whiff of snark', 'energizer bunny battery down due to emoticon over-load', 'typo queen', 'too many links overload'.... I thought these would be fine as would be one like 'narada'.

    I think a thread can handle negative-watsons. Others think it is a slippery slope and people/feelings will get hurt. OK. And some more opinions also getting shared. Feel free to share your opinions.

    Gabfest is right enough. All the discussion has been here. I don't see any need for it to go anywhere else.

    If anyone so wishes or feels the need, they can also start a separate thread on the feasibility of negative watsons.

    I, for one, having nothing to add to the discussion.

    None of the things u wrote
    'more than a whiff of snark', 'energizer bunny battery down due to emoticon over-load', 'typo queen', 'too many links overload'.... I thought these would be fine as would be one like 'narada'
    strike to me even remotely as -ve..at worst "leg-pulling". I might be too old but -ve watson has a much stronger ring to it and hence the need to know more about the reasons. Since there isnt one there isnt anything left to discuss.
