Did you post a Showbiz thread in the wrong section?

Or are you trolling by making people think John Cleese has just died? (That's the usual assumption when a thread title just contains a name.)

He's either a bumbling idiot or Machiavellian manipulator of the global scientific community, depending on what point bolly is trying to make.

The law changed on racism, sexism and homophobia because there was demonstrable evidence of inequality and the adverse effect it had on victims. So, let's see proper hard evidence that psi research...

If you're still posting here in another 5 or 10 years, I can safely predict that you'll still be telling us the era of materialism is drawing to a close. It's always "jam tomorrow" with psi.

So that's a big NO!

You repeatedly take opinions from blogs, forums and other informal sources and then just cite them as if they're official condemnations. It's a very disingenuous way to debate.
