Re: Aikiweb as a "Big Tent"

Personally, as far as I can see part of the basic premise of a normal conversation or of a discussion forum (as opposed to, e.g., a scientific journal or a newspaper or something with a more narrow goal) is that people can and will be interested in what they're interested in, will believe what they believe, and will want to talk about it with each other, even when you are convinced or even _know_ that what they're talking about is Objectively Provably Wrong. That's life, that's conversation.
