I’ve said this many times. But when you attack someone’s personality, it only points to the weakness in your argument.
Case and point.
They are two of the most knowlegable writers on Syria. You may disagree with their views, but you’ll struggle to dispute their insight. That’s when we turn to personal attacks.
I left a comment challenging Badran’s tactics against Landis, and pointing his readers in the direction of Moubayed’s webpage so his readers can make up their own mind. The comment has been deleted.
Personal attacks and a lack of tolerance for dissenting views. Perhaps a few democracy activists should look a little closer to home before deleting dissent. Have a look on the sidebar of my page: “the information democracy”. Feel free to post a comment, disagree with me, debate, discuss, argue. You won’t find me erasing views I don’t agree with.
It seems Bashar’s access to a major US TV network (ABC News’s week of Syria specials … scroll down this page to find my links to the videos) has really made some people throw their toys out of the pram. Boo hoo.
UPDATE: My second comment (“Am I right in thinking you deleted my comment”) has also been deleted. We run a tight dictatorship here.
UPDATE2: And again. So I’ve posted this: Just tell me Tony, what do you find so threatening in my opinion that you find it necessary to hide my views instead of replying to them.
How long will it take him to delete that.
