YOU said this is a comparison of 1941 Battleships and the prerequisite was they needed to sink a compatible ship to qualify for the comparison. Irregardless of how stupid and asinine that logic is if you want to stick to your fact pattern Duke of York is not a candidate because by 1941 it didn’t sink ANYTHING. GET IT?
Well if you’re going to name call, I’ll point out that it’s stupid to say I said things that I never said. And the correct terminology professor is to quote what I WROTE, becuase no one actually “says” anything on this website.
Point of fact - I simply pointed out that the missouri never sunk anything.
And by doing so attempted to make that ship less than qualified as in “a ship that does not sink another ship should not be part of any comparison.”
Never once did I claim it wasn’t a candidate on that basis. That’s your Stupid illogical conclusion.
No it’s more like you backtracking and editing some past posts that make your argument less rediculious.
How long is it going to be, before your scientifically observed temper tantrum goes over the top, and you lock this thread and edit my post, because you can’t handle the comments I WRITE on this website emotionally? NOT LONG is my guess.
The only one laughing at you is ….everybody.
And by your false logic, why not include the refitted missouri that fought in the first gulf war? I mean it’s the same ship right? By YOUR failed logic it should be included, because you’re not advocating any kind of “era” limit imposed on the ships discussed.
That would be too complicated for you because you are unable to just compare specs between ships because if you did, anything you said would have less merit as it does now.
THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU SAID. You said it had to have sunk a ship by 41.
Again - put your reading glasses on old man, I never WROTE that anywhere.
Excuse me while FACTS SHOOT DOWN YOUR ARGUMENT YET AGAIN: “This is a 1941 Matchup.”
You did write that ships that didn’t sink another ship should not count, but conveniently in your post here, you edited that out. Nice.
**The Missouri never sunk a ship. � Ever.
Her crew also ran her a-ground.
The reality here is that Americans sailors, are just not the same, or even similar calibe as British sailors. � You’re talking about 100’s of years of tradition, vs self grounding and friendly fire incidents.
If the question was, who would you rather have supporting your troops on the ground with shore bombardment, SURE the Missouri could be a better pick. � But British ingenuity is going to rule this day, hands down.**
THAT SAID. � The missouri shouldn’t count. � She didn’t even leave port until 1944.

I apologize in advance Worsham if your thread gets locked, or these posts get edited, Imperious Leader doesn’t have the cerebral fortitude to withstand legitimate debate, and the moment he loses ground, he goes for the heavy handed moderation option, to cover up his embarassments.
You might want to apologize instead to him by making up rubbish regarding Worshams ACTUAL BASIS OF COMPARISON, which is entirely different than your take. Be a good chap and let others debate the real merits of comparison.
to cover up his embarassments.
You must mean embarrassments?
Here is where you needed to cover gaffs…
