You apparently missed my point, so let me spell it out more clearly:

Right or wrong, it is a good thing to ask questions and make statements that most people disagree with. Just because something is widely accepted as true does not make it so. Even if the masses are correct, questioning their belief can bring progress, both through the questioner learning about the subject of their question and through others questioning their own beliefs.

In this particular case, I had never really thought before about what I consider a "framework" to be and I am genuinely glad that Ovid asked the question and prompted me to think about it. That is why I thanked him, not because I was worried about his feelings - I assume that, like most of us here, he's mature enough that disagreement (whether reasoned like most of ours or steeped in ad hominem like yours) isn't going to injure him.

And I still haven't seen a definition of "framework" from you. Have you thought about how you define the word or are you just leaving it as a vague, undefined "I know it when I see it" concept? If you don't want to share your definition, you don't have to, but, if you haven't thought about it, then what are you getting from your participation in this thread beyond an opportunity to call people names?

    always something against "the masses", always something only he sees, always controversial
