@exoteric: Agreed. Nobody's saying don't criticize, we're saying be critical in a thoughtful way, also known as shared critical thinking. Let's have the conversation, but let's do it in an intelligent way. Channel 9 is not smoke and mirrors - it never has been. Rather than pumping poison directly into the happy death star, why not pump some vitamins into it instead.
Two way communication is just that. I'm finding that the threads in question are meant to be one-sided. How do we have intelligent discourse here? That's the question. Negativity is poison. Constructive criticism is a wheatgrass shot. C
