Thank you.   "Begging the question" is a logical fallacy wherein a conclusion is already assumed in a question.


/yes, language changes over time, but it's usually due to laziness and ignorance.

Or complete lacking of farks to give.

"Begging the question" is a logical fallacy wherein a conclusion is already assumed in a question when you are in a formal debate.This is not such a thing.  So, like the "difference" between "hacker" and "cracker", or calling some modern white supremacist a "nazi", or the term pedophile, or any number of other words/phrases that the lay man uses differently then is used in certain specific circumstances within certain communities, "begs the question" means "someone needs to farking ask this".

Seriously: biatching that "begs the question" only can ever mean what you want it to mean given your very narrow circumstance in which you use it is like the ijjits who insist "less people" has to omg absolutely should be "fewer people": they're wrong, and smug in their belief that not only are they correct but in some way better than the people who use it otherwise.

There needs to be an online "museum" of ridiculous urban legends that eventually became plausible or even routine.  Beginning with the classic, "The calls are coming from inside the house!"

"The government is suppressing light bulbs that last much longer and use less electricity."  Actually, when the government started plugging the CF and later LED light bulbs, the same conspiracy theorists had a conniption and started hoarding old fashioned incandescents.

"The government has a computer that listens in on all phone conversations."  When this story started making the rounds, such a thing was absurd; there just wasn't enough computing power on the planet, and the voice recognition technology wasn't there yet.  Now of course your phone is a computer that listens in on all your conversations, and if Apple or the government want any of that information, I'm sure they can get it.

"If you get an email with the words 'GOOD TIMES' in the title your computer has been infected with a virus."  This story started making the rounds back when email was just ascii text and couldn't do anything, then Microsoft made it possible for emails to execute macros without the user's permission.  Oh, and that Cornell kid did that thing with the internet worm.

"There is a vapor carburetor that will increase the mileage of you car..."  It's called fuel injection.  Volkswagen had it for a long, long time, and pretty much every car has it now.

So in this case, "laziness".   Understood.

Embden.Meyerhof: ...says the person who is admitting to breaking grammar rules and misusing accepted definitions with righteous aplomb.


But I'm not saying my doing so makes me better than you.  I'm not accusing you of being lazy, or ignorant.

Smug?  Snob? Yes.

It's like insisting the "t" in "often" be pronounced (or not be pronounced): it's just a way for a certain segment of people to feel that their breeding, education, social status, makes them better than people who do not conform to their standards -- "Oh, look at him!  He swaps his fork to his knife hand after he cuts when he eats!"

Really: it's artificial bullshiat designed to let people who have no other way to feel good about themselves to feel that they are, at least, better than others.

"I'm taller than him, so I am better."
"My skin is lighter than his, so I am better."
"I know to not pronounce the L in 'salmon', so I am better."

It's pathetic*.

I'm not saying my position is better than yours.  I'm not saying that I pity you.

I'm just saying: you're wrong.

* in the modern derogatory sense, not the "pity" or "sadness" sense that you probably say it should

things turn out to be huge exposed conspiracies at least 6 times a year but NOOOOOOOOOOO, not for farkers. never happen.

in the last year there were 3 huge hush hush conspiracies just in the american food industries. owners of huge chicken producers and the canned tuna industry were fined huge millions after the government caught them secretly fixing pricing.

all 3 times these things were reported on Fark. yet the conspiracy denial lives on. buncha mooks.

It's not a good day unless I've broken at least 50 gramma rules. Gramma was an ESL teacher.
