Response to cyberswede (Reply #26)

42. I don't find reply #5 to be snarky. Is that a group think thing that all must agree w/that?

Because someone dares to state (in a non-rude fashion) a direct experience or observation, that therefore all holds barred, and the gimps are let out? (ref. to Pulp Fiction)

He simply stated he found the site to be a group think place like a tea party place.

The obvious response to that is that...this is a progressive site, and therefore, there is a sort of group think to it. That's one of the bases of a site of like-minded people. That doesn't mean that varying opinions are not accepted, as long as they fall into a "DU" focus area, and even outside of that, as long as mainly the person is of a progressive mindset.

Now THAT'S how you respond to a serious criticism of group think. Not "Oh, yeah...well, your mama wears army boots! Take that!"
