To those of you that know of me on this forum I am not shy to give an opinion. However I recently have been trying to make a concerted effort to argue points rather than people. Sometimes it seems very easy to either put a person on a pedestal and then go on to take everything they say as gospel (even defending a point of view that you don't necessarily believe) or on the flip side total ignore very valid points when it comes from a person who you have marked as foolish. I saw that a lot here, and I think I was quite guilty of it too. So, I have been trying to avoid that and focus on the facts... Tonight I was discussing a subject on another forum regarding IRS reporting for a certain type of income, that is a really unique case that I feel I am so right about based on facts, backed up with IRS law, along comes this guy and we are bickering back and forth on the matter....we were discussing gambling wins. He has a link in his sig to his blog.... I dig a little... The guy graduated from Harvard, invented (I mean really invented) MS Word, was PA to Bill Gates, quit MS rejoined them later to build MS Access, quit again, wrote several books, became a pro poker player, appeared on TV and in Movies... I feel like my entire concept of the argument over the man went out of the window, and I am blown away. Ooops -- mods, in my mancrush I didn't post this in the Off Topic Sub Forum, could you move it there pls?
