And you are as as smart and right as them because you agree with them.
Come on. That's just about the lowest retort you can make in an argument. That's just a level above "I know you are but what am I". You're better than that.
"they're all wrong" is just as 'low'.
So, let me get this right. You can, on your own, just decide that anyone who uses mask-squinting is wrong based on your knowledge of how storytelling principles work. This is considered by you, to be a valid and good argument.
However, if I say that you are wrong for decrying mask-squinting and I base this position on its ubiquitous use across the globe in comics and animation by professional, award-winning storytellers, I have somehow presented a "poor" argument that doesn't make sense.
Your rebuttal to my posting Pixar using mask-squinting is, "They're wrong". This is valid. Me saying, "You're wrong" is totally invalid.
You're just being a hypocrite. "If I say it, I am right." Anyone who disagrees, no matter what they say or base their opinion on, is "Wrong" or "Irrelevant" or "Not valid" or "Nonsense" or some other damn thing.
I have repeatedly shown you example and reference, used your own terminology as you have defined it to show you that your position is flawed at its concept. Your only response is either "They're still wrong" or "You're not getting it".
You quote yourself in such a fashion it makes me wonder if you're even reading your own posts, let alone anyone else's.
I don't know what references you think you are showing using terminology as I've defined it.
All you're doing is giving my examples of people doing it. I'm not saying "nobody is doing this". Yet that's what you keep rebutting. If I clearly define the framework and parameters for my argument by saying "this is why this shouldn't work", the logical retort is not "so and so and so and so and so and so do it".
It's also not to say "no, I think THIS is the correct terminology."
At that point, you aren't doing anything but offering up your own opinion. That's fine and dandy, and you're welcome to have and post whatever opinion you want. But you aren't presenting a proper rebuttal within the parameters that I set. Yeah, I set it, and I started the argument. You have a problem with that, too? You have to start somewhere.
Actually, I can't continue this with you. You're getting way too offended about a simple opinion and turning things into personal insults.
It's not that important.
