Using HyperList for social engineering

Here’s one HyperList user’s account:

There is this one girl with whom whenever I talk, we end up arguing and as usual girls are never defeated in an argument. This time, a few days back, I decided to plan out how to defeat her in an argument. Using the HyperList method, I planned everything. The list was around 3-4 pages big. Then I argued with her and yes bowled her out 🙂

I am glad to be of assistance 🙂

  1. I would have loved to show them, except some of them are almost abusive and some are kinda private. I will try to tone down the language and weed out the private parts, if it possible and mail it to Isene.

  2. How incredible it would be if someone were to write a HyperList for Rules of Discussion for the blog. Just imagine a clearly laid-out system that kept exchanges on a straight and narrow path that would lead toward “inspiring one’s opinions, beliefs, trusts and outlook” (to quote the previous OP) – it would have amazing potential! Especially considering all the philosophical questions and viewpoints that have come up on this blog over the last few years.

    I guess the basis of it would be the Logical Fallacies but not set out in such a way that they could be used as debate tactics, and of course it wouldn’t have the purpose of winning built into it. In fact, it would keep all such unintended purposes off the line as anything in that direction would be breaking the agreed-upon HyperList rules of the blog.

    I don’t see why this couldn’t be done – or why it hasn’t been done! But I don’t know if there is any other such blog or forum on the Net.

    If anybody could do it, it would be you, Geir, as I’m sure you know how to write a HyperList better than anybody, and you also know the Logical Fallacies as well as other pitfalls of discussion that you’ve observed in overseeing the comments all this time.

    However, if such a project is more than you can or want to take on, maybe you could set up one of those systems where a group of interested individuals, even at a distance, could work it out together. Would that be doable somehow, without having special technical equipment or expertise?
