  • TorgoX writes that what Bush is trying to do in Iraq will do poorly even if the Iraqis are lucky.

    I think that is is a very poor attribution.

    TorgoX may very well have the most posts in the journals, but he doesn't actully comment on a large portion of them. (Which isn't a slam in any way against his posting style.)

    In the post you link to, he makes no comment at all. He links to four different articles and it takes a bit of work to find out what, exactly you are referring to here.

    Because you are not referring to something he actually wrote, but rather an article he linked to...
    • In the post you link to, he makes no comment at all ... Because you are not referring to something he actually wrote, but rather an article he linked to... ... I am safe to infer he agrees with the content, when it seems reasonable that he would. Which it does.
      • I am safe to infer he agrees with the content, when it seems reasonable that he would.

        I'll leave arguments of reasonableness to you.

        But you did not infer this, you claimed that he wrote it.

        He did not.

        I guess there isn't much more to say to make that point...
