Robert Fernandez thinks it is "remarkably inappopriate" to put the
phrase "*experts
**are scum"* in quotation marks as if it were a quotation from the
Signpost. No. This is a quotation, which perhaps he did not recognise, from
a rather long-standing and well-known essay, which discusses this
very issue and is a convenient and common way of summarising the attitude
exhibited in the article.

Does Robert have any views on the topic of this thread?
