: : That's Emily's argument, a few posts up in the thread. This was my counter to it:
: : : : : "Practice" is not the same as "do." Just because someone is not doing murder at the current time doesn't mean that they don't practice murder.
: : The point of that is that to practice something, one need not be doing it right at this moment. The "now" of practicing something is a duration of time, not the momentary "now" of doing something.
: --Right now you are trying to change the issue in order to face what little is left of your position. The issue was, all the time, that pork is being a hypocrite, preaching against what he practices. It simply doesn't matter what "now" really means here. Pork preaches against what he practices himself, by your definition. And your need to be right is tiresome.
WHAT MATTERS IS THAT PORK IS NOT CURRENTLY PRACTICING
HIS ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN BOARD POSTS;
EVEN THOUGH HE WAS DOING SO AT A TIME IN THE PAST,
PORK HAS STOPPED SUCH PRACTICE
HE HAS CHANGED THE WAY HE ACTS
THEREFORE, HIS CRITICIZING KB AT THE PRESENT TIME
IS NOT HYPOCRITICAL
