I actually have to agree that in a perfect world, it would have been optimal had society been warned earlier about what a despicable piece of slime Dr. Shermer is. Of course, I say that as just another typical internet coward, one who never had to face the career-destroying decision of accusing a person who not only holds a high position of stature and influence in my field of interest, but is also a lying, vindictive, litigious bastard -- and perhaps even worse, a decision that would attract the hostile, obsessive attention of oily little people everywhere, demanding to know every sordid detail however tangentially related to the incident, not as a way to determine the truth but rather as a desperate attempt to find any little fault in my behavior, so that somehow, some way this whole thing could be blamed on me.

Yeah, gimme some of that.
