Hey, I think this is a little over the edge. We have diverse people here with various backgrounds and mastery. As long as they tell their opinion, speculate, suggest, ask, etc. - everything is fine. After all, many great ideas were born out of pure speculations. Only when you INSIST on something, then you have to back it up by facts, or math, or logic, or at least anything discussable. So, when a clear claim is made, we can argue. And I frequently disagree and discuss with Nelson some his claims, trying to support my opinion by facts, math and logic. Also, when someone claims being somebody which sounds doubtable, you can ask and check, etc. to make sure that what was claimed is correct.

But I would not blame someone to that extreme for his PERSONAL opinion. I think, he is great philosopher with interesting point of wiev, and sure with great experience. And we may discuss his ideas, points, opinions, etc without going emotional (which is hard sometimes, I confess). So, please respect others otherwise we will just waste time by yelling on each other without sharing much.
