    Then make the effort and call them on it. It won't change unless someone does.

    But distinguish carefully between theoretically incorrect and practically incorrect.

      That's my point. Any time someone spend "calling" bullshit cannot be spend answering questions. So, it's in everyones interest to not answer if you aren't sure about the answer. (Well, except for the ego and XP of the person who thinks "I rather post bullshit than keep quiet").
