Lea.......You are absolutely right. A couple perfect examples of the "steel trap" right here in this thread. I really like good rational discussion, but the name calling gets really childish. I think you've described well why so many feel the need to use negative labels instead of engaging in rational discussion.
I remember quite awhile ago the first time I visited this forum. One poster took it upon himself to take my postings and search the internet looking for source material where it could have been cut and pasted from. He found no such thing and concluded that I was being sincere and original in my thoughts. I'm no Einstein but I do enjoy reading and discovering for myself what I consider to be the truth.
Good Night.
