Which facts? Please clarify. I read your post which elicited a response from RD, and I did not see any facts just assertions. Kindly elaborate.
Bhurishravas has responded to you, by highlighting facts in his post, that you asked for.
But, may I ask, what is wrong with assertions ? Just about everything posted here is assertion (opinion). Simply asking a question like you did, clearly implying that his assertions have no merit, because he has not stated any facts (an assertion, on your part, which I might add, happens to be untrue), without providing any counter arguments, is just innuendo, bordering on a slur.
It is not really very "clever", and is negative. I would have loved to see counter arguments from you, rather than "chankyan" put downs like that. What does this sort of put down accomplish, other than to diminish a person, who is simply trying to post his opinion. He did not attack you personally. I am disappointed in you. Instead of diminishing him, this sort of thing diminishes you, particularly, when reading your posts elsewhere, including a detailed response to one of my own posts, I know you are capable of making powerful arguments, which I may not agree with, but they are well thought out.
Who said anything is wrong with assertions? The whole forum is based on assertion and opinion. He said he had facts, I asked him what they were. He pointed it out, and I answered him (thanks for highlighting that he had replied by the way, or I would not have seen it).
The implication that assertions have no merit is only drawn by you. I merely separated them from fact.
Remaining assertions/observations by you about cleverness, chankyanness, disappointment, diminishing myself, etc., are noted and given due consideration.
