    •  The recent events have changed that... (0+ / 0-)

      ...which means now the burden of proof is on both sides. Telling one side that they have no right to discussion or raising questions is unethical, at this point.

      •  If you mean what you say (0+ / 0-)

        then you still agree that the commenter should provide proof for his side, not just hold to it as a default position absent proof from the other side.

        I'm not trying to shut down debate, just asking for more intellectual rigor in an argument than "prove me wrong."
