I was referring more to his friend than to royster. (Although it does look to me like many of his objections to Facebook and some other stuff is less rational than emotional. He is presented with rational statements, and responds to them in an irrational way -- with feelings and metaphors, for instance. My evaluation of irrational or rational arguments doesn't have to do with my personal feelings about Facebook being wonderful; it has to do with the noticing how someone is using language. Again, I'm not saying that irrational is wrong or bad.)
I wonder if there are people like that who believe there are little ghosts in their phone?
I just feel like maybe one of us isn't understanding what the other is saying, and I'm not sure if it's you not understanding me, or me not understanding you? |
Well, I feel like I understand what you're
