It must be remembered Bluffy believes if he copies the passage exactly, just without its context, it's not a quote mine. That's how he davines it.

It doesn't seem to be an irrelevant number to me. You did a calculation. Seems like you did it correctly.

Facepalm.

So, having been told that snipping just a bit of the post that he liked while ignoring the main argument is dishonest, Dave goes and does exactly that again.
it's not dishonest at all. We do that everyday with Snippets from articles from Wikipedia and so on. One of you people's big problems is that you make up your own private definitions of terms such as for the term quote mine.

If you did in fact make that calculation and I used your number exactly without modifying it, then what's the problem?
That you removed the context that made clear how irrelevant that number is, by showing you an even lower number that your theory requires.

Okay I looked at this again...

Do you agree with the following?

"The real number is 0.000018"

I honestly thought that you did because of what you wrote.
The whole point of the post was that the number being that low is irrelevant, Dave. That's how a parallel-drawing argument works.

I suspect the reason that Dave has taken to not quoting posts, but using creative paraphrases instead is because he's been caught quote mining so much.

FFS, you advocate for that behaviour on your blog, Dave.
