Don, I sense that you are at boiling point at the moment because Gary and Scott are Authors of the Month and you are not.
But you can't - and never will be - author of the month unless you write your own book.
Take my advice. Lock yourself away in "purdah" and get all your ideas down in one tome. Then - instead of trying to rip down ideas which you say you don't believe in, and therefore which have nothing to do with your own work - you can present what it is YOU believe in to the world.
And hopefully then - when it's your time to shine - Gary and Scott won't spend that full month screaming for attention....
