It’s not a demand, or a challenge… just an opinion expressed, as if by a customer about an establishment they like for some things but dislike for others

Or as a first time guest in someone’s house saying, “its a nice house, but I don’t like the color scheme”. 

But look up one of PLaClair’s posts and signature line, he is a senior member.

Some people call that a “complisult.”

Out of curiosity… Without labels (right/left, etc), is there a specific stance/activity that CFI has pursued with which you disagree? While tactically you would not have singled out Wal-Mart (for example) you still agree with the goal of alerting people to junk science. What do you abhor??? And please, let the flies enter…  ;-P

Waiting…. you still here? I hope so…

I prefer “backhanded compliment”.

The OP has apparently lost interest in this thread. I wish he had provided links to those articles he found so horrifying, as I could not locate them. That is why I never responded to his post listing them, although I suspect I disagree with him on each point.

What, specifically, horrifies you about CFI, and why?

The logo. It looks like a sperm entering an egg. :-)

As long as it is the right sperm….or is it a left sperm!!  :lol:

Well, traveler, that explains why neocons hate Obama so much; he’s trying to make them keep their private jets for seven years instead of getting a new one every five years. That must be horrifying.

Yes, seems this is another one of those who has general thoughts but then decides to bolt when asked about specifics. Oh well…

I think it’s a good sign that the OP isn’t saying anything.  A lot of people (I’m sure you’re familiar with them) when their long held beliefs are challenged will double down and argue even stronger for their old beliefs.
