Thread Name: BS: Fighting fair in arguments
Subject: RE: BS: Fighting fair in arguments
"argument" means several things. One of them is just the position that you are proposing. Another would be any reason that you put forward for holding thar position to be true, or for throwing doubt on another position. Then it can mean a reasoned dispute. Or it can just mean another word for a shouting match. But that last meaning doesn't override the others.
