Error404/RS gets THAT from my post at http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=18840&perpage=6&pagenumber=12. He uses the word "indecisive" three times. That's three more times than I used it. Nor does the phrase "nothing but middle of the road" appear anywhere in that post or any other. My key statement went: "Being middle-of-the-road, or unaffiliated, or uncertain, or maybe moderately liberal, or inconsistent doesn't make you wiser or more objective, it just makes you middle-of-the-road, unaffiliated, uncertain, maybe moderately liberal, or inconsistent." I quite conspicuously did not assign any label to him. I gave him a spectrum of choices, with what should have been the obvious implication that I wasn't really sure which, if any, accurately described him. The point wasn't where he stood, or whether or not he had a consistent position, or even whether I agreed or disagreed with any particular stand of his other than his implicit claim to superior judgment and objectivity. The point was that defining yourself as in the "center" or near it, claiming that you're unattached or unaffiliated, or claiming that you strive for "objectivity" doesn't mean that your perspective or your particular arguments on any given issue are correct or, in fact, objective. There are even instances - in politics, in science, in everyday life - when the position that is thought to be "extreme" is the only moral or truthful position. Don't we all know this already?
