I liken your response to those of some students who insist that their
perceptions are the only ones that count.

Dear John, the world is full of varying levels of experience, expertise
and backgrounds. You have a right to think we are a bunch of assinine
schmuchks, but it is afterall, only your opinion. Lest we confuse opinion
and fact and fall into the trap of those who believe their ideas are the
only ones which count - let the rich and raunchy tapestry of all ideas
co-exist and keep on hitting that delete key!
