That would be hunchbacked a person of very poor spatial relationships.  Very easy to debunk although he will never agree that he is "seeing" whatever he is speaking about incorrectly.

I couldn't resist either. Why do you have to tell me about such things?

I think some of the others in the discussion are still overestimating Hunch's abilities. They don't yet understand just how bad his perception and reasoning really is.

Reading through his list of topics, it seems he's had some "debates" with Ernest W. Adams before.  A bit surprised to see Ernest there, as he usually pops up on Facebook, and it got me wondering if he's a member here too.

Anyway, I'd be interested to read more, but I have to ask, is Quora worth signing up for?  It looks like yet another Q & A site, but possibly lower quality than Stack Overflow / Stack Exchange (if a bit wider in topic range).

I've been on Quora for a while. A lot of the questions are poorly phrased, too broad, too subjective and/or look very much like they're written by a student trying to cheat on his homework. But there are many that are definitely worth answering. Besides, I got a free laptop bag from them last year.

I haven't used any of the other collaborative Q&A sites so I can't really compare them.

It still contains no debunking of the Bart's claims.

It was essentially made to showcase and advocate Sibrel's claims, with very little if any attention given over to debunking.  While ostensibly presented as a balanced view, my conversations with the interviewees reveal that it was edited in a very one-sided fashion.  This was originally presented in 2002.  As you may be aware, at the time Fox News and Fox Entertainment were two largely separate companies that shared one broadcast channel.  Conspiracy Theory was produced by Fox Entertainment; the Fox News arm ended up having to do damage control.  As part of their penance, Fox Entertainment agreed to be the distribution network for Mark Gray's Spacecraft Films offerings for a while.

This was the reason I quit watching Fox as an "unbiased" news source.

Has anyone seen/heard from Cosmored/FatFreddy88/Scot etc.  in the recent past or has he quit spamming the internet with his ignorant viewpoint?

And quite a few seem to come from the same law school as Moonman.
