No, you don't, actually, because you're not paying attention to what people 
say here.  I agree there is "syncategorematicity" involved in that 
distinction (the latter term being something of a placeholder without a very 
determinate meaning), but it is not operative.  You're being a fool, rather 
than a dupe (and when you're a dupe, all kinds of shit can happen to you, 
including being picked like this -- which is what the discourse here is 
designed to forestall, that is load onto syndicalists and other suspect 
types, which is something those kinda guys don't like to do 'cause they have 
other shit to do).
