How to dominate a thread
It doesn't matter that I reveal my secrets, because I'm that good.

First, you have to give yourself an aura of eminence. Doesn't mean you have to know everything. You just have to appear that you do.

You do have to give a command of the language, so if English isn't your forte, then perhaps none of this is for you anyway.

On this site, you don't have to be technically proficient in everything you espouse, because this is a forum intended for the masses, and so it's not so much winning on each technical point as it is winning on the emotional front.

It's all a Game. You just have to bolster yourself as better than everybody else playing the game. Even when you don't know the answer to something. Just respond emotionally and full of confidence, and it really doesn't matter.

There's no fair or right or wrong, just if you want to win, you have to be good at playing the game. Even when someone plays a card that I didn't foresee or that's beyond me (it's no shame, because we all have our strengths and weaknesses, so who cares if somebody is better at math than you, for instance?). the important thing is that you carry on, and project that image of win. Then you win.

Too oftentimes it takes so little for others to bully someone into submission. when in all actuality, remember, they're just as human as you and so just as subject to all the frailties of human existence, including self-doubt. Play upon their fears, and you'll win.

Easy peasy!

peace

Maybe with a better soapbox eh?

I've got some tricks I like:

Derivative argument: show that one's own argument not only considers all data-points of the opponent's, but actually transcends it also in terms of intention and end-result.

Lure metaphor: appear to digress from one's argument in order to cause opponent to strike against fake argument. Then the metaphor is revealed as in-line with one's own argument, and the opponent is left with an embarrassing logical break.

I got tons of em, as in martial arts, the best procedure, is Disarm and Humble the attacker. peace

Re: How to dominate a thread
Hmm... interesting.

Another technique I like stems on the above "Derivative Argument"; wherein one forces on the opponent an ultimatum: "well are you with us, or against us?" basically. I use it in morally or religiously charged debates wherein I believe the opponent to be actively malicious.

The name for this one is drawn from several sources including "role-playing" on this very site. I call the technique "Witch Hunter". LOL. In the theme of fighting deception common on this site.
