That's an appeal to authority.  The discussion here has nothing to do
with my ideas, they are about Bruno's ideas, especially in Bruno's
answer to a question directed to him.

I also find it odd that Bruno suggests asking specific questions but
in the link I posted to sci.logic, there were several specific
questions.

Seems like it might just be easier to stick to sci.logic.  Less
politics involved.

How is that not trolling?
