    Defeats the whole purpose of a forum doesn't it? Brainstorming? Feedback?

    That's some irony right there.

    In a perfectly free system, which I hardly have a problem with, everyone's allowed to be just as stupid as they can muster themselves to be, but additionally, others are allowed to say "what an awful idea." Introducing control creates a smorgasbord of problems.

    Oh I agree. But that doesn't violate the "ad hominem" rule. Control is only meant to ensure that. Be it the law or in this case common sense.

    It really helps, when someone has an awful idea such as every one of lemons', to be able to say "Look at how awful this idea is, and it's unsurprising, considering his nine other awful ideas, all of which I will gladly show you now."

    Whom does it help? You mean the innocent, naive and discernment-lacking bystanders? Naive to be fooled by people like Lemons, but astute enough to be convinced by your assessments of his past ideas as proof (never mind subjectiveness and different opinions) that he's wrong?

    You're telling me you doubt that when someone makes a claim, but no one's there to deny it, that some people believe it?

    So deny it with reasons, not meaningless insults.

    I agree with your stance probably... I think lemons' ideas are usually quite simple and/or inaccurate. But, hey, he tries to think outside the box and puts his ideas on the line, which is more than I can say about 95% of the people I know.

    Of course you have a right to state your opinions, or state that a claim lacks validity. It's just that if you expect people to take you seriously, it's probably a better strategy to point out the errors in reasoning as opposed to throwing out insults like a cocky fourth grader. You let yourself get emotionally involved, which is silly when put in the context of your stance about emotion.

    No. Are you telling me you are not concerned as to why people agree with your theories just as long as they do? Isn't the whole merit in a theory making sense? Are you trying to convince the people who can't even "put two and two together" that you're on to something? Those people aren't really interested in what anyone has to say about psychology.
