That you choose to let somebody else speak FOR you, is also legitimate, but again in contrast to the idea of the dialogue-form implied in 'discussion'.
So using this forum basically as a pulpit will most likely result in critical opposition just on that point, where I am amongst the first to voice such criticism.
And a small personal comment. It's not all of us having the possibility or interest in relating to vidoes or considering this forum as a directory pointing to external 'specialists' debating other external 'specialists.
References to information backing up dialogue-points is another matter.
For a starter this post of mine is an opinion. Detailed factual debate may follow.
