I encourage you to share your thoughts or arguments in the comment section under each blog entry.
As St. Eutychus says, “Play the ball. Not the man.” (I think a lot of the rest of his comment policy is good advice, too.) Seriously, I think you should stick to talking about substantive ideas, even if only for totally selfish reasons—if you start insulting people and taking everything personally, it makes you look bad, and makes your arguments sound less reasonable.
