On the METAR board, I post study after study supporting my positions. They post isolated anecdotes that do nothing to disprove my position (but the anecdotes get tons of Rec's). They *refuse* to post studies that contradict my position. Instead, they insist that I am selecting studies that support my position. If so, they should have no problem coming up with studies that contradict me.

It really is truly amazing the extent to which some people will ignore reality in order to keep believing what they want to believe.
