Personally and just my opinion.....
You should refute, respond, deny ignorance, and do it when you feel you need to. As to "how"....as MA teaches and councils.....with tact, but
sometimes one must do it with a bit of harshness due to the fact that many believe so passionately in what they have for information......
I, on the other hand, do it selectively, based on how much knowledge I have combined with factual evidences I have found, other than the
internet.....the problem is, I have a hard time remembering to write down my citations for quoting from library sources....bad me.....not good.
Follow your heart and mind...it seems, at least in my experiences here, that when you refute too much, people tend to 'avoid' your postings and
such.....kinda like you have spoiled the party type of thing and now no one wants to associate with ya......
My gripe, as yours, is that it seems that alot of folks take internet information with great crediability and fail to check the sources and even then,
sources get called "bias", BS, etc......so, in a way....one must rely on the information found...key is to check or cross reference the information
given with outher sources to see just "how" factual thier information is......
Trust me...I've done the same, been there done that and had to learn this the hard way......
I think that is why I am more critical of some information posted on topic and on topics, in general. That belief that because it is on the internet
that it is the gospel truth.
