I tend to be. Unlike some others. I've never claimed infalliblity.The Hitch said:you mean before when you were arguing about bilharzia, you hadn't even looked it up?
Well, I guess it's good that you are honest about it
, to admit that you will took skys side on an issue without having even looked it up. Shows that you don't really care about the facts, just will take the side purely because it's yours, right or wrong.
Shows nothing of the sort, though it's interesting you can only see things in view of sides. Says you care more about sides than the truth. which isn't news, frankly, but always good to be reminded.
It shows only that my memory proved to be somewhat faulty - after all, i did make it clear it was from recollection, not research.
"as far as I know"
However, the basic central point, that a 'relapse' was a rare but noted phemoneum, because of eggs left embedded in tissues after the medicine was taken, is still correct, isn't it?
And I wasn't 'arguing' a point. When i'm arguing with you, you'll now about it.
Think that's one of them there ex-agerr-ma-ations, so it is. More to the point, ffs, within the rules, I'll post what i like, ffs, how i like, and i won't be seeking your ffs permission to do it - and when i get things wrong, I'll own up to it.Covered a million times, ffs make the effort to research the subject and look over the previous discussions before commenting thinking you are offering something new.
You must have missed the point where I clearly said i hadn't a notion if this applied to him. Up front. from the start. And, surprise though it may be, i'm not his doctor, so I don't have any access to find out.If froomes problems is the eggs remain, then why does it keep appearing and disappearing (and offer some sources please, as those of us who are taking the discussion seriously and not trolling have done)
And explain why froome and Brailsford explicitly state that this is NOT what is happening. They have said it is the parasite not the eggs that affect him.
now if you want to accuse me of trolling based on a memory lapse which does not actually affect the basic point. feel free to take it up with a mod and see how you do. Because I don't give a sh!t what you think, and i'm not overly concerned about the temper tantrums.
I made a general comment on the disease based on memory, which turned out to be faulty in a particular, so I, voluntarily, and publically, owned the mistake and corrected as i learned more. If you have a problem with that, well, you have the problem, not me.
