It is with regret that I must now moderate comments. I knew that my previous posting Anti-Science Propaganda would result in criticism from the anti-scientist crowd. I mistakenly believed that an intellectual exchange of ideas was possible with these individuals. However, someone decided that it would be appropriate to post racist hate speech in the comments. I would like to extend my apologies to anyone who has been offended by their inappropriate comments.
I am disappointed with the anti-scientists—the parental activists and the Scientologists. Frankly, I expected mature behavior and their ability to respond with thoughtful ideas of their own, perhaps even some facts. Instead, they could only offer yelling (typing in caps) and racist hate speech. If they ever get their Congressional Inquiry, I would hope they could do better (but I’m not holding my breath).
My comment policy is this—I believe in the intellectual exchange of ideas and am willing to post all thoughtful comments to my blog, including contrarian views.
