To be sure, BrowserUk calls you out severely when he believes you are wrong.

Just for counterpoint, I didn't start out being quite so direct in my responses. Here are a few earlier posts where I attempted to inform him that he was providing bad information:

As you can see, I started out with gentle nudges and corrections. It was only after they were completely ignored that I gradually ramped up the directness of my replies.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?

    Please, do keep it up. A lot of times I about choke on my coffee going "wtf!?1" when I read his posts and then I see you've already called him on his vaguely theoretical bs and then I smile because you've saved me the trouble of having to do it.
