I'm no "judge."

But, as a matter of opinion, how do you equate a statement about an accusation being an actual admission of "guilt?"

So, in your view, just because he even mentioned it, it's an admission of guilt?? ....AND a "Freudian Slip??"

I just don't see your justification for that.

In this same thread, Slick-Beast said to another poster, "You're a well-known Commie."

So, by your "justification," if that poster said in another thread, "I was accused of being a 'well-known commie," then that is also a "Freudian Slip" and an admission of guilt to you??

At any rate, I only gave the link to the other thread to show you WHERE Slick-Beast's statement came from...Yes, another poster DID criticize him so. ----And it may even be TRUE; but I disagree with you on you "judging" his guilt by simply referring to that criticism.
I mentioned you as a 'better judge' because it's an English question and you were formally trained in English.

If we use your example, "I was accused of being a well-known commie" is a different statement than "I was criticized for being a well-known commie." In the latter sentence, the person is communicating that they are in fact a well-known communist and was criticized for that reason. The former sentence has no such implication.

I say it's a Freudian slip because I doubt SlickBeast meant to imply that there. But that's how answering an accusation in the manner that SlickBeast did could be read as an admission of "guilt."

Thank you for the explanation/rationale.

I still disagree, though.

criticize
1. to censure or find fault with

2. to judge or discuss the merits and faults of:

3. to find fault; judge unfavorably or harshly.

4. to make judgments as to merits and faults.


accuse
1. to charge with the fault, offense, or crime
2. to find fault with, blame

Have you heard something call context? One sentence can have different meaning depending on the context in which it is applied. Being a petty and vain individual as you are, may be you should open a new thread in the grammar section to discuss the matter in depth.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
