You of course have every right to post whatever you feel like (so long as it doesn’t violate Medium’s terms of service), but I have every right to highlight whatever inadequacies I think those posts have.

More generally, my experience is that a thoughtful approach (whether or not it includes some degree of disparaging the other side) has a much better chance of yielding some new understanding. Mutual fury is largely impotent to convey any insight, and thus is rather dull to me; I’d rather play a video game if I simply wanted to blast at things.

Anyway, the ball is way off the original court that I intended to play on, and I don’t think I have any more to say about this one.
