Response to Re: Labels...
"I think anyone who proposes to infect the worlds population with virus in order to make it sterile is a nutcase."
Is a lot different from:
"I think anyone who proposes to [safely] infect the [overcrowded] worlds [endangered] population with [harmless] virus in order to make it [reversibly] sterile is a nutcase."
Despite the fact that the statements are logically equivalent.
What battle exactly are you fighting? Are you just trying to attack me? Or do you find the idea itself objectionable for some specific logical reason?
It is typically considered a lot more classy to attack the argument rather than the arguer... Saves a lot of useless flame wars.
