Where exactly does he say that he is dishonest? And even if he did say so explicitly (which I very much doubt), wouldn't that be a classic paradox?

However much one disagrees with the ideas of communal property and piracy, someone else's belief in or defense of those ideas doesn't make that person inherently dishonest.

Diap's on firmer ground calling Giggleton delusional (though I'm not thrilled about the ad populum) because at least Diap's joking about the plausibility of his opponent's arguments and beliefs.
