Very true. But i find your critical thinking abilities, as exposed in
your writings, comparatively low. Therefore, i find it a good gesture
to give you honest advice.

Please let me know if any point in that Wikipedia article on critical
thinking you already know well, so that we can discuss facts well and
have a proper argumentation.

No, it's not a attack or insult. Usually i do a 1 min research on
google group to see past exchanges between me and the tech geekers who
vie to argue with me. With a glimpse of me and joe's past exachanges,
i can get some idea of their nature, from their writing skill to
expertise area to thinking skill. With that knowledge, i can give a
more proper and fitting response.

Like you emphatically expressed, i also try to correct others so that
the young don't get corrupted by bad info.

Please don't feel bad if i tried to correct your correction. When you
tried to correct my correction of your correction and is corrected by
me again, i would advice not to insist on correcting it back, because
it is not fruitful. But if you insist on the virtues of facts and
corrections, i'm happy to follow your lead.

Good morn actually, it's 3:13 am here. I'm off to bed.

Happy hacking,
