First real rocket attack shot at where I live since the war has started. Caught the explosion right over head as I was entering the Shul Bomb shelter. This was yesterday on Monday.

Crazy. People that don't live/visit there can't fathom what it's like having rockets literally flying over one's head.

Here we go again. I have less than half the posts. I have the only posts being commented on. Please show the math on how that statistically makes sense.
“Only” is irrelevant. We need the statistical odds of 2/8 being selected from a pool of 19 (18 really because we can disregard the opening post imo). It’s tilted in your favor but not a wild as your out of context claim tried to portray.

I portrayed facts and you countered with pie in the sky math. Others just blindly liked your post as if it made sense.

It makes no sense statistically, END OF STORY!!!

And conveniently left out some important ones. But I agree it’s time to end this story.

If you are looking to talk statistics lets go!

There are 18 posts in that thread. 1 is the OP explaining what it is for, 3 are replies to other comments (including one telling a commenter correctly that his comment belongs elsewhere. This leaves 14 news comments remaining. 6 are by 1 user, 3 by a second user, a 3rd has 2 comments and the remaining 3 are one each. The poster with 6 comments is double as likely to have a random comment on what he wrote than any other poster there.

 :P Statistics aside, yes you are the most likely to get argued with due to the echo chamber that absolutely exists.

Would it be fair to me ask the same. Why does there need to be an argument on everything I post?

We now have a thread for NO DISCUSSION on the war. There are numerous posts in that thread. Only two posts out of them someone felt the need to comment on. You want to guess who's two post they were?

I agree with you that it does get annoying.

I hope you do realize that often when there is no comment there is actually agreement. Focus on the positive!!!

Also, I think when the ages of members are taken into account, it can explain some. Younger people are usually faster to judge and might not be able to see ANY legitimacy in opposing points of view.

Lastly, as I posted earlier, this is definitely an echo chamber, which makes your input (and hopefully output out of it) all that more welcome! Echo chambers are boring and don't contribute much to deeper thinking and understanding!
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I guess you have a different opinion of what NO DISCUSSION means?

286 pages here and no one still hasn't convinced CV on anything here. Can we just stop this weird desire to get him on the same page and start discussing the actual war for once?

I actually learned a lot on this thread. That is a positive so don't take it as a negative.

I love how even in a thread about a war between Israel and Hamas with over 10k killed, CV becomes the victim ;)

He did an excellent job. It seems like they cut off some of his answers.

They all seem to be cut off. However, at the end, Muir mentions that the full interview will be aired on Nightline. I guess sooner or later that will be available for posting here.

Well the Jews are never allowed to be the victim so that eliminates most of the remainder.
