Which is exactly the point: time and again you allow yourself to pass
severe judgment on motives of others, without having _any_ idea
whatsoever about the facts of the matter, just because you smell some

If you want your opinions to matter, first learn the subject, or ask.
_Then_ state your opinion, based on facts.

I assume that people who write their opinions know what they are
talking about.  It is your duty to make yourself familiar with facts
before you speak up, especially when talking about something that was
last discussed 7 months ago.
