If you meant it that way, that's fine.
However, because of his supposed brilliance, shouldn't his predictions stand up to sctrutiny days, weeks, months, or years later?
His predictions are no better-- and oft-times much worse-- than most of the minor league posters on this board.
If you couch yourself as some kind of expert, shouldn't you expect blowback when wrong?
Can you have it both ways?
I don't know what I meant. I was drunk. It made sense then.
But yeah, if you set yourself up as an expert, express things in absolutes, and do so in a not-so-tactful way, yeah, you better be darn accurate or else you're setting yourself up like a bowling pin.
I'm not saying its right or wrong, but it is human nature and it will continue to happen. C'est la vie.
