With respect, Darth Rotor, replacing Upchurch's name with Uppie can be construed as disrespectful and a violation of rule 0. Upchurch doesn't appear to have taken offence, but to others (well, me) it looks bad and reflects poorly on you. You should be able to state your case without going for apparent ad homs.
The social illusion reigns to-day upon all the heaped-up ruins of the past, and to it belongs the future. The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduce them. Gustav Le Bon, The Crowd, 1895 (from the French)
