If he wrote them here, then I've already refuted them, making the reading of
the articles a waste of my time. If you're referring to arguments along the
lines of "_FWD Car Quarterly_ writes that FWD is superior to RWD" then I'm
not going to bother refuting them, because they're not arguments, they're
Perhaps we should clarify exactly what I mean when I use the word
"argument." MS Bookshelf 2000 has several definitions for the word.
The first two are as follows:
1. a. A discussion in which disagreement is expressed; a debate. b. A
quarrel; a dispute. c. Archaic. A reason or matter for dispute or
contention: "sheath'd their swords for lack of argument" (Shakespeare).
2. a. A course of reasoning aimed at demonstrating truth or falsehood:
/presented a careful argument for extraterrestrial life./ b. A fact or
statement put forth as proof or evidence; a reason: /The current low
rates are an argument for buying a house now./
I'm using the second definition.

Restating your opinion is not sufficient to claim refutation. An
authoritative source to back up your claims is also needed. Unless
you are claiming authority (a logical fallacy anyway.)
He's providing links to other sources to back up his claims. Just
because you don't want to bother looking at them does not in any way
give your opinion validity (other than being your opinion, that is.)
And if all you have is opinion, then you're on equal ground.
We are both using the same definition of the word "argument." Now,
Google up those links he provided, and you're golden.
And now for the real question: why are we discussing drivetrain
layouts not found in very many North American Audis? (alt.autos.audi)
Implying alt.autos.audi is primarily for the use of North American Audi
drivers? I've just refreshed my newsgroup list, which now contains well
over 30,000 newsgroups (probably a fair few more - I can't see a total now)
and this seems to be the only newsgroup with audi in the title, so surely
it's relevant to audi drivers (or people with an interest in audis) all over
Ok, I don't think there are any RWD Audis being produced at the moment
(unless you count the Quattros, but some of the earlier Audis were, AFAIK.
Heh! Maybe I should have made that clearer - I updated the newsgroup list
from my news server,which contains around 30,000 newsgroups - I only read
about 15-20 of them, and only 5 or so very regularly.
