Poor decision making is one predictable consequence of having a low fluid intelligence. Unfortunately, fluid intelligence is particularly immutable.

 @granvold It's all there for anyone to read... minus the many legitimate comments that were left in indefinite moderation.  I'm sure people can make up their own minds as to which party was engaging in good faith.

"It's illustrative that on Ophelia Benson's commentary on your piece (<a href="http://freethoughtblogs.com/butterfliesandwheels/2012/08/remembering-that-we-can-be-wrong/">here</a>), the comments section immediately devolved into a classic example of JAQ-ing off (Just Asking Questions)."

 

Great example thread of exactly the opposite of what you are attempting to illustrate. Timon for Tea, who made a genuine and concerted effort to engage the topic of Ophelia's blog, was ultimately dismissed as "unfit for debate", "tone trolling", "privileged", etc... That thread is an excellent example of just how unwilling the FTB gang are to engage with even the most mild and reasonable criticism.  Your description of this person's contributions to that thread as "JAQing off" is way off base.
