13. My experience also ... BUT

If I am making any claim that is remotely controversial or debatable, I usually give the most high-powered attribution I can find for the point of view I am proclaiming.

Usually for me, it would be in recommending one software system or approach over another, and I would tend to try to support my argument. That is assuming I feel I need to persuade someone of my POV.

I think the point of the OP is that this powerpoint clearly was not trying to persuade anyone - it assumes the audience is ready to buy into everything it is presenting.

Or it just indicates that the person pull the points out of their asses. Claustrum Dec 2021 #1
