You have every right to linger on this, Robert. You have good reason and evidence to doubt Andy's interpretation and if others want to believe you're being biased, then that is their problem. Not yours. It's your right to defend your position. The problem with people who haven't had any experience with or exposure to academia is that they don't fully understand what it is to have a theory and to defend it. Or to defend a previously espoused theory that's become accepted as being "mainstream" knowledge.
