85. my take, briefly
Obviously cs2 has an 'agenda' of expressing skepticism about the Connell story. I'm skeptical about the Connell story (I mean specifically the part about election fraud in 2004), too, although cs2 seems to personalize his skepticism more than I do. I understand that some people feel compelled to defend you; it just doesn't interest me that much.

In general, my own experience here has been that many people interpret skepticism as disruption regardless of the skeptics' intentions. It seems kind of silly to me. If someone is wrong, it's often easy to show how. And if someone is right, one can learn regardless of motives. That's how freedom of speech functions to promote collective learning, but only if people want to learn.
