@Marc: You said:
I would suggest that you leave psychological interpretations of where other people are coming from to the pro's."
I am free to state my opinion. If my opinion is not in accord with what you see as the facts just state the facts and move on. There is no need to try to suppress other opinions by appealing to authority.
FWIW, it's not an appeal to authority - he is
the authority, in this case.
Anyway, if everybody's free to state their opinion then why are you griping about Marc expressing his opinion?
