Dude, get over yourself.
Thanks, @Grob, for bring a breath of sanity to this often times sidetracked thread.
As for the OPEN Forum, I am sorry to report that it is worse than you could ever imagine.
Compared to even the regular forum, the OPEN forum is absolutely loaded with ninnys, and breathtakingly strange ideas.
The annonymous character of internet plays havoc with the regular forums. But it renders the OPEN forum both unaccountable AND unworkable. It's a very scary place with lots of (seemingly polite) religious, social, and political fanatics.
I spent about 3 days as a member. I was aghast with what I found myself reading.
The "Open Discussion" group makes the regular forums look like a scholarly discussion at a major University.
Don't waste you time with the OPEN forum. Most don't, and for very good reasons.
Wait, what was the original discussion about already ?
Oh yes, the meanings of "meaning", "exist", and "fact".
I never tried the open discussion group. I guess it is not worth any time and I guess more or less the kind of creepy things that might crawl in it.
To each its own. You never tried it but it is not worth your time?
I found out one thing the word "exist" has a common usage [which I was using] and also a math usage [which I was not aware of]
Of course instead of raking me over the coals it would have been better if someone would have told me this [someone finally did and I am grateful for that]
Well, the kind of person who brags about their SAT's is often also a person who will obsess with doing well on it so that they can say they did well on it :)
I know what you are saying, I was just trying to defend against the ad hominem attacks by showing their lack of foundation in reality.
Yeah, I understand.
Sometimes when you are personally attacked [ad hominem] after so much you just have to try and defend yourself and show "their lack of foundation in reality" [I agree with condude2 on this point]
My expectation (in the mathematical probabilistic sense) of what I would find in there, compared to time to do other stuff, is largely negative.
If you could combine two chess pieces powers what would the two pieces be???????
