You don't seriously compare an american teenager to Sloman? His points, even though I may not agree with every detail, are as a general rule very well argued.
I'm glad that he takes time to cast doubt on stereotypical OT nonsense which now and then appears in this group. Kids may be readlng these posts, and would take all sorts of propaganda as actual facts if nobody countered. Having said that, I'm also glad that Mr. Larkin challenges Sloman's opinions, reasonably often fact based.
I said 'cast doubt' because nobody is under obligation to accept blindly any of the claims made by anybody.
Now I must get back to productive work and earn some more euros to be shoveled to Greece...
