You do see this a lot on the 'net and occasionally on FR, usually practiced by someone who only asks questions, a technique also prevalent within the "Critical Thinking" curricula. An old and notorious FR troll named Ash was an expert at it.

I remember him. I can think of about a dozen other current frequent posters who refuse to be nailed down on any issue, but happily excoriate those they consider 'extremists'. These 'extremists', not surprisingly, are almost always the social conservatives among us.

I've run across those same people. However if you push them enough, more than a few lapse into name-calling and irrelevancy which totally outs their lib mindset.

Where's the "Hammer Meets Nail" graphic when you need it!
