I dont like "split" so I'm giving this to Ras.
Not a skill advantage but maybe some dirty trick and cunning would grant him some advantage.

His win against Deathsroke is tainted by all the preceding factors I've since learned came to light

But

It's still more than the Black Knight has

But if Black Knight has a Handbook entry saying he's the most skilled swordsman on Earth, that will change EVERYTHING

Why do you insist on misrepresenting my positions to make them seem less reasonable than they actually are?

That's not a misrepresentation

You make it sound like I used Fandral's bio to overrule something from an actual story, which isn't the case. I actually brought it up to counter your claim that Balder was a better swordsman... a claim which, as far as I can tell, was based on nothing more than an assumption on your part. And while I rank evidence from stories above statements from bios, I'm afraid I also rank statements from bios above assumptions from readers.

You have autism

Not true. But even if it were true, it wouldn't make me wrong about any of the points I argued in the Fandral thread. This is just you resorting to a blatant ad hominem; you can't defeat my argument, so instead you try to undermine me by attacking me on a personal level.

I never use such tactics against you. I don't like you, and don't think much of you as a person, but I never use that as an excuse to wave away your arguments without addressing them.

Would anyone honestly bet the under if the O/U on HC members with some form of autism was 75%? We sit around and argue over fictional fights. We're all fucking weirdos.

That's just being a geek, or an otaku. Hardly interchangeable with autism. I doubt Oats genuinely thinks I have autism. It's just his way of trying to undermine me. I believe it shows poor character on his part though. Neurological orders like that aren't anything to joke about. If someone here had autism for real, only an obnoxious prick would ridicule them for it. A decent person would feel some sympathy. Ironic, isn't it? I, the person accused of having a neurological disorder associated with social impairment, am a more considerate and compassionate individual than the person who applied that label to me.

Apologies for the derailing the thread a bit, but I wasn't going to stand for Oats misrepresenting something I said, or casually using austism as an insult.

I'd offer an opinion on the match-up, but I really don't have much of one. More curious about how others saw it than anything.

This is literally what someone on the autism spectrum would post.

Definitely over. And I'm speaking for myself here, as well

Whatever. Ridiculing someone on the basis of them supposedly being autistic is a dick move. And that only applies moreso if the subject of the ridicule genuinely is autistic.
