When someone attempts to score points by using phraseology which is so convoluted that, at the end of the day, doesn't make sense, or is irrelevant to the topic IMO, I tend to call it gobbledygook.

Why do I call it gobbledygook? Because I can.
Because, usually, I'm too polite to resort to gutter language and name calling, however, I have been known to make exceptions.

I think it was Frank Sinatra who sang, "Idiosynchasies, I have a few.....", and so do I, so I'm tolerant of others who do too. (Remember my mate Pinguin). But when someone continuously and deliberately snipes at me and tries to take the p**s out of me, they quite often succeed.
Congratulations.

Do, include sources of information that are being presented as fact.

That would include news stories, current events and especially quotes!

You may not have seen the conversation between Franky and me about plagiarism.

You have reinforced my comments, thank you.
