What I'll never understand is why naysayers can't just be civil when they
disagree, but have to resort to argumentum ad hominem all the time..
indirectly accusing what they don't like by calling it "lies", dupes, fraud,
cheat, and so forth.. some of the terms I have heard recently from different
people, different places, different websites, but similar topics.

Let people do what they like doing, let people enjoy listening to what they
enjoy listening to and leave them alone. Seems reasonable to me. I'm just
an Idealist I guess.
