    And watching some people here distance themselves from me because I can't explain my point of view or simply because it doesn't follow theirs due to the fact that I'm getting my answers from an entirely different reality, a different world to the one they were indoctrinated into. That's difficult... That's a downer...
    Yes, but anyone who doesn't agree with the consensus on this site usually gets criticised for that reason alone. Nothing new here.
