As someone who has been reading these boards for a while now without posting I'd like to register that I actually find the posts of people like Cort and his disciples far more upsetting than those of people like V99 and AWOL. But I expect that my views will be ignored and disregarded as they don't fit in with the ephos of this forum and the close knit clique that control things just the way they like it. I find Cort incredibly annoying actually. Am I allowed to say that? I read here because you do get good posts from scientifically aware people which help to explain things to me. What I hate is the blatant controlling of anything that doesn't toe the Cort line. If anyone dares to go against the Cort line, in jump the usual disciple suspects to offer their support and to smear those that dared to speak out, usually the "moderators", i.e secret police who, to my mind are just as guilty as those that they claim are rude and disruptive and upset me. So does the fact that these people upset many too on the "other" side not mean that they should be censored, told off, removed from the group? Why are they in the right?
Cort made many mistakes in this "article". It's not the first time it has happened. Does he not realise the amount of damage it can do? Frankly he's in way over his head. He's not the Messiah, no matter what he or his disciples might think, he's a very naughty boy, and someone who's in it to feed his own massive ego and career development. Oh and his ME is NOTHING like mine. Maybe that's why he likes psychobabble therapies so much?
I look forward to now being banned for speaking the truth and on the end of the disciples' own nasty posts. It'll be a record anyway, being banned after making just one post. Dissent happens for a reason, and Cort and your disciples, ARE that reason.
As to whether I call an article a blog or article or paper is not an important issue for me. I responded to the title question earlier.
