In my opinion, forum-wise, it's not that new info, or old info revisited, is rejected. It's how it's presented and how doubters are treated that matters. This is beginning to sound like a broken record because too many of us have developed an emotional stance. An insinuating comment followed by a rebuttal followed by hurtful things like implying doubters are ignorant cult members, followed by mods locking followed by attacks.... good lord, let's ALL ease up just a little before we burn this place down.
After considering LODO it dawned on me that I've been taking measures to reduce oxygen since almost the beginning. I just don't go to extremes and I'm personally not a fan of adding chemicals that I choose to think I don't really want. But I have no reason to attack those who do, so long as they don't attack me. Why does this have to be a fight?
There's another aspect of this forum that seems to be ignored lately. This is the AHA forum... you CAN NOT prove anything. Except to yourself. Studies, technical data, pro examples, blind triangle panels, medals, tasting notes from Grand Master judges... all meaningless if you are trying to PROVE anything. Your only hope is when someone tries it for themselves and they like it. So how do you get them to try it?
Belittling berating hate speech doesn't work on too many people.
What happened to the slogan of the man who started this all? Relax, don't worry, blah blah blah
