I can only speak for myself, but as I've said here, I don't. I would love to, but don't think it's possible to change his mind. He's basically said flat out that he's not going to buy in to the "official" narrative regardless of what it is.
As for correction, I guess it's a desire to capture for posterity in case anyone has the slightest temptation to buy into any of it.
All that said, this is a very interesting thread, because in debunking his bullshit I've actually learned a lot, and there's been some very enlightening discussion - particularly when he isn't posting, but sometimes having illogic as a foil helps one to best communicate logic.
This is a thread that should
exist, and, credit where it's due, it's perfectly titled (though of course the irony that it hasn't been adhered to on any level by the one who came up with it does not escape me).
A good example is when I brought up COVID's effect on MLB - I thought it was an interesting subject, and I enjoyed hearing players' perspectives.
Jimbo's response, of course, was to assume I was "calling in the experts" (again, the irony is thick), but I was really just interested in their perspective.
Sometimes the stupidity is too much to bear. Sometimes I can't help myself. I don't like to live
in it, but I do have something of a combative side, and this thread has served it well. Sometimes I'm just, you know, thinking critically, and so I involve whatever's happening in the thread at the moment in my thought process. That's often Jimbo spouting nonsense, but it isn't always.
In any case, thinking I can change his mind is very
far down on the list of reasons why I post to this thread.
