What part don't you understand of you made up the question after you twisted yourself into a pretzel? Here is your made up question.From the beginning I said ask/tell do not mean the same thing. If they did mean the same thing then no matter what example we use should not matter. You were dishonest by slanting the poll. You already conceded they don't mean the same by having to slant the poll.

It case you missed it:
Ask - you have a choice
Tell - you are given no choice
Do you understand the difference?
No, I never once maintained that the two mean the exact same thing in all circumstances. It should be fairly easy for you to show me where I’ve said that. You can’t, because I never did. Only a moron would think ask and tell are the same thing always.

That said, in the context of how I was using “asked” and “told”, the words were interchangeable. You can revise history all you’d like, but remember you’re putting words in my mouth. Quoting posts is easy enough that if you were right you’d be able to show it.

You are the one who tried to make it about context after you had no response when I said they were different. Like I said you slanted the poll because you knew you were wrong.

It case you missed it:
Ask - you have a choice
Tell - you are given no choice
Do you understand the difference?
Please tell me how I slanted the poll? Which part would you have preferred not be part of it? I’ll remind you one more time, you answered this

Just to be clear. Are you saying that the following sentences are “totally different”?

I told them to slow down the testing.
I asked them to slow down the testing.

With this
Of course they are completely different. Telling someone to do something is not asking them to do something.

  • Location: As always, silence is NOT an admission of agreement on DDF. It just means that people lack the stamina to keep on arguing with made up "facts", illogical arguments, deceiving statements, nasty and degrading comments, and fuzzy math. - @yelped
Which part would you leave preferred not be part of it?

The dishonest Jews.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

Guys, don't you think 5 pages of this back and forth is just a little too much? Who cares? You both agree Trump is a fool and move on. Who cares if he asked or told someone?

Honestly I’m just trying to show how the good Count’s intellectual dishonesty works against him as often as it does for him should anyone have the stamina to finish the argument. He is sometimes right and others are disingenuous when they debate him as well but he is just as guilty.

I ask this several times.
And? Did I disagree that ask and tell *can* have different definitions? If I did, please point to a post of mine that says so. If you don’t, we can just include this in “arguments of yours that weren’t fully thought through”

That wasn't the question. Do you understand one has a choice and the other does not? Not can but does!

In certain contexts, correct. Not in the context we were discussing. What’s your point? This is what we refer to as a straw man- you are presenting an argument that nobody disagrees with.

I have you on the record as saying no to an actual question I asked. I think you’re wrong. Can you say the same about me?

I gave a straight answer to your question. You keep being dishonest hedging your answer.

Start a poll
Ask - you have a choice
Tell - you are given no choice
Two choice, agree or disagree. You will get blown out of the water and you know it.

The way you worded the poll you have to know what was in the persons mind when they made the statement. You have no way to know.

So why does everyone seem confident in their answer? “Debatable” is an option in the poll.

Don’t forget that is the EXACT same question I posed to you. You’re changing. The question you’re posing now was never a matter of disagreement.

Is there anybody on these forums who you trust to give an objective answer? If there isn’t, that says more about you than the forums.

If someone uses words and assigns wrong meanings to them that does not change the real meaning of the words. Anytime you ask someone to do something you are giving them a choice. You can twist yourself in any shape pretzel you want but that does not change the factual meaning of the word.
