Lots of people feel very strongly about their own opinions. I have in the past done so too, especially in regard to politics. Other issues too.
It does not seem it ever makes any difference, except, hopefully, when I donate money to what I consider a worthy cause. My all time favourite is to help animals. They are heaps better than any humans. More deserving. In my opinion of course.

As for Gish galloping, I think Susan is quite good at that too, equal to Ray.

I will leave it to them to have fun, banging their heads together!

GG.
