And that was not the portion I was ascribing the word liar to. That was the misinformed part. It suggests that you watched the crappy parts and missed the good. At the very least it insists that everything must be viewed prior to someone forming a personal opinion which is at the very least, just wrong. If someone watched all of season 1 and was thoroughly disappointed why should their opinion of the show's quality be less valid? Could it have gotten better? Maybe, but that in no way changes their opinion of it or the validity of their opinion. Might you take it with a grain of salt that they've on seen X% of a show? Maybe, but if someone watches 20+ episodes and it all sucks it's the height of foolishness to say they are not qualified to form an opinion on a show because they didn't subject themselves to the entire thing.
Now if someone saw one or two episodes and declared the show scholck I would agree with you but once you reach a certain point, say the first season of a four season show, and its been crap so far no reasonable person is going to blame someone for forming an opinion, "This show is crap," and walking on it.
To watch an entire series run yet absolutely detract it, is incongruous to a non-masochistically cognitive mind, but incongruity does not equate to dishonesty nor did I state it did.
Incongruity does not mean dishonest but it does suggest that something's not right. Incongruities are typically how lies are exposed. You're using soft language to try and make it seem gentler but in the end you're implying that the person of whom you speak is either a masochist or something is not quite right with what they're saying, aka they're not being entirely honest, aka they're a liar. You soften it up with pretty words but at the core you're calling someone a liar, though admittedly in the nicest terms and an oblique way.
Well, I suppose I could amend my earlier statement to, "...misinformed, a lair, or irrational." Would that suit you better?
Why should you be confrontational, I was not using persuasive linguistic devices or emotive and inflammatory terms like 'liar' nor implying such.
Because I am and because I rather despise double speak. You have an opinion, say it. Don't pull punches or try to soften it down.
