11. "Apparently, in your view, all readers should assume that as well"


That has got to be one of the most simplistic things I have ever seen.

When I see a title, or an article, expressing an opinion, what I assume is that it is the author's opinion.

My goodness, I don't know how you manage to avoid a coronary over things like "Why Barack Obama doesn't deserve to be re-elected" in order to resist being irresistibly hypnotized into thinking Barack Obama should not be re-elected.

Your argument reduces to "It is a rhetorical ploy for someone to disagree with me."
