Always trying to divert. Diversion is your only [lame] rebuttal.

That wasn't a diversion or rebuttal, just an afterthought.

You completely ignored the substance of my reply. In other words, by declining to answer my question and focusing instead on my note about plagiarism, you're the one choosing to digress. Here, again is the exchange:

Felix (to Lurker): You always run away giggling when confronted with your hatefulness. Does it makes you fell [sic] better to think that I'm "stewing?" Sorry, I'm not.
Cath: We have here the personification of the phenomenon of cognitive dissonance.
Felix: Really? What are the two conflicting cognitions -- opinions, beliefs or whatever -- that are being resolved in the above statement?

You made an odd accusation. Can you back it up? We know you can i a definition of "cognitive dissonance" from a website, but can you show that you actually know what it means?

Again, how is my remark an example of cognitive dissonance?
