    But I don't care if you think I'm arguing in bad or good faith. Lol   You can either participate in the argument or not.  I got that you think me not representing you the way you'd approve of is bad faith.  And I'd say that's a pretty ludicrous standard for debate.   I'm not your biographer.  I'm not here to rearticilate your claims to you in a way you prefer.   I'm debating your position.  I'm not attributing to you anything you didn't say.

Well, that last statement is what is in contention, isn't it? I'd say that understanding what your opposition's actual stances are in a debate is an essential standard for debate, not ludicrous at all. If every time I state a matter of degree and you shift it to one or extreme or the other, you are not actually understanding my point. You can't debate my position if you can't articulate it properly.

I'm articulating it to my satisfaction.  Not yours.   I think I've captured the substance of it adequately.
