    Sounds like a fantastic tactic to convince yourself the other person has nothing to say.

    Lemme try: "Black Swan was a good book, *but* these days Nassim Taleb seems a charlatan who likes to spout half-baked contrarian bullshit. " How's that?

    This guy is somewhat of a [crank](https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Nassim_Nicholas_Taleb). Not sure I'd want to quote him.

    Sometimes that makes sense, if the speaker is dishonest and using misdirection tactics, BUT qualifying a fact or recognizing someone else's position before disputing it is the only polite way to put it in context. I assume this guy was referring to something specific, not offering general advise.

    Seems like and accurate statement, but I'm positive it doesn't apply to me.
