I only look askance at those who cite their charitable work as a club to "prove" their superior knowledge of a particular facet of society. I admire Feuser for his work with the elderly..........and I'm sure he has far nobler motives than obtaining my approval.

I am not trying to "prove" or legitimize my opinions by throwing around "credentials". I mentioned it to provide specific context to the question of voter ID requirements.

I believe that I have seen examples where what seems trivial to us becomes a huge burden to many people in fundamentally different circumstances (age, health, personal background). The outright dismissal of this fact does touch a nerve, and I apologize if my reaction was too aggressive.

That's all.

From the man who used "junk science", the haven for disgraced tobacco company "scientists" as an authoritive source, comes this renewed commitment to careful research:

If you regard the regurgitation of other people's opinions by a rookie, as an authoritative piece of work on a complex topic, feel free to do so. Most people, including me, would not.


But you don't know what it is, do you, mrgybe?

No, the angry gnome feeds on the bits that are quoted by the few not-yet plonked posters. Only then does he look behind the curtain and cough up some vitriolic screed.

Don't be fooled. He reads them all.

His ego demands it.

His claim to have "plonked" certain posters is just another lie.

Not sure about that.... Why accuse the insane of being nuts.
