Agreed. Let's not confuse a simple issue.
The purpose of this thread — and making it sticky — is to have all of the classic, specific preek arguments in one place. Adding their general tactics just muddies the water.
Well, I think they should be near each other because, illogically, stances and tactics get used interchangeably. Whenever people (myself and OH included) get passionate we just let reason go out the window. Why do you think legislatures needed rules of order. If we label the tactics as Tactics, we can respond to each in kind with "Stay on Target" instead of letting ourselves get baited onto distracting tangents.
The only tactic I've seen repeatedly is blatant evasion - which is pretty boring and not really list-worthy.
All the arguments they rely on when they work out what they're trying to say are listed here.
Damn! I thought I was getting nuts, or had to much to drink, or just the wrong meds (again!) seeing your signature change all the time.
