When Jimbo said:

Like I said, I'm really sorry you aren't hearing what I'm saying. Here is what asking a question looks like: "Hey, you said your wife would be at church this morning, but she isn't here yet. Is everything ok?" And here's obnoxious speculation: "Hey, you said your wife would be at church this morning, if she doesn't show up, you essentially lied." Given that there is no reason at all for you or anyone else to think that the Foundation '''lied''' about this, it was frankly absurd and obnoxious for you to even bring it up in this totally out of context way. I hope this is helpful to you in understanding what I am objecting to.--[[User:Jimbo Wales|Jimbo Wales]] ([[User talk:Jimbo Wales#top|talk]]) 08:05, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

The thread of logical confusion on that page is too horrible to contemplate.

I rather see it as akin to the Mad Hatter's Tea party.
