Re: Can never watch UFC the same way again
I've been into direct conflict with Joe about some of the plain nonsense he puts out there, particularly the bogus science he claims to understand and the pseudoskeptic he is, at times, and I haven't gotten pinked once.
I even remember a time when I didn't lose my cool but he clearly had when I was pointing out the giant holes in AlphaBrain and everything about it and he came down pretty hard with some really terrible arguments and half-insults and there was even a post in the Tard Bin (where you go if you're pinked) that depicted Joe being a bit of an off-the-chain hot head in that discussion and throwing ad hominem out while I did nothing of the sort. I have a feeling he'd pink or ban be for a much lesser infraction than would ordinarilly be worthy based on my words against the complete bullshit that is AlphaBrain, and Mr. Marcus and how what they're doing is not only utterly unethical but dangerous.
I did get something of a compliment on one of his podcasts, which was... nice?
All-in-all, I think he's a good guy, doesn't have any particular illicit intentions but refuses to acknowledge the biases that he has and that we all have.
