Too bad that only applies to /statements phrased in formal
logic/, not to everyday statements expressed in a human language.

Only someone who has run out of sensible arguments or a disingenuous
sophist would try to extend this so-called postulate the way Peter
and you did.

Really... if you *actually* believed that Peter's argument had merit
and he was not merely being facetious, I guess I rest my case
regarding tab users and their 'logical prowess'.

LMAO again.
