With apologies to the mods.
Some of the 'logic' you have expressed in various posts is abysmal and demonstrates little understanding of the subject. Additionally you have avoided or otherwise shrugged off requests to cite your sources while simultaneously demanding other people provide references for theirs.
Also, anyone claming "I'm smart therefore I can be rude" (using words to that effect) is merely saying "I am rude". Nobody cares how smart you are or aren't. There are some extremely well qualified people in these forums and they tend to be some of the most helpful, polite and modest folks around.
Plenty of people, I should know I'm one of them, put their foot in their mouth on occasion or get a little off-topic now and again but common courtesy and a modicum of sensibility is worth a great deal.
Being right is great, being wrong is fine if trying to help and most of us (you included) fall somewhere in between. Being abrasive is another matter however.
