    without also simultaneously offering a gratuitous insult when engaging others on the steward-to-steward communications protocol.

    •  Did you actually click on the link (0+ / 0-)

      and read his material?

      It truly is idiotic - that is a fact, not a gratuituous insult.

      Brings to mind the time Greenpeace proposed banning chlorine  - one of the most abundant natural elements - from planet earth.

      Or maybe he's not being idiotic, just flat out lying.  Maybe I should have called him that instead?

      Bottom line - don't you find it just a tad embarrassing, if not downright irksome, when environmentalists put out totally sketchy information that discredit the entire movement?

        "Bottom line - don't you find it just a tad embarrassing, if not downright irksome, when environmentalists put out totally sketchy information that discredit the entire movement?"
        Yes, it is embarrassing.....in a movement founded by a scientist, John Muir, for this kind of approach to campaigning and declarations to be happening.

        But, the only way to influence these groups is a steward to steward consult, which should leave out the insults....

        If you're trying to teach stewardship conduct, you have to do it by practicing stewardship conduct (and declarations).

        •  I still don't know where the perceived insult (0+ / 0-)

          comes in - I didn't say he was an idiot (he very well may not be in real) - just that he seemed like one based on the material he presented on the internet.
