The above is just further evidence of the type of liberal, irrational,
decadence and ignorance which has grown steadily worse over the past
decade, something which is reflected in usenet. Something to think on:

  'I have had neither the aptitude nor the temperament for
  debate, public or private, when confronted with  motives
  recognizably other than the pursuit of truth. If in discussing
  with a student I sensed that he was  animated rather by some
  ideological preconception, or by a wish to have been right for
  the sake of high marks or self-esteem, I make short work of
  the dialogue. A vast gulf, insufficiently remarked, separates
  those who are primarily concerned to have been right from
  those who are primarily concerned to be right. The latter, I
  like to think, will inherit the earth.'
  W.V. Quine
  The Time of My Life (1985).

and the list of papers and press links referenced in c.a.p on "what
works" (and what can be effectively managed).
