    Well then please enlighten me, where in that post do you see the hallmarks of bias... things like ad hominem attacks?

    To me, every criticism raised seems substantive.

    I said stay far away from the movement, and you assume i'm an activist... lol
    What I assume is that you empathize with it, and as such see yourself as a supporter of the same.

    this branches off the previouse assumption, more emotionally toned
    I assumed you were more inclined to agree with the protesters than not.

    And then asked you what those protests have achieved.

    it was a statement with my perspective of what is going on, idgaf about the semantics of the situation
    If you didn't give a fuck you wouldn't have posted. If you support OWS, then support it. I'd be much more inclined to respect (but probably still disagree with) your view if you would take a stand as opposed to climbing back up on the fence.

    But to each their own.

    you assimilate this separate movement with OWS, and emotionaly judge it in that sense, thus biased.
    No, I notice the similarities between the two, most specifically the great overlap in those likely to protest or agree with the protesters.

    If I skipped some mental math, and assumed that those in both protests or those that agree with them are much more likely to be ideologically similar than they are different, then sue me.

    That's not exactly a huge leap to make.

    If you disagree with me, then disagree, and enumerate your thoughts.

    You only get one chance at life, you might as well swing at every pitch, even if you miss a few.

    EDIT - sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I had a long day.

    should be interesting to see where all of this goes. This is definitely just the beginning
