I disagree.    With respect, I think Bill merely mentioned 
why he does not consider the reviewer an accurate source.

As a retired lawyer and college debate coach, I feel it is an
appropriate aspect of any argument to consider the 
reliability and expertise of the source, as long as it does 
not become an "ad hominem" attack on the author, and 
remains focused on why the source is inaccurate, or 
unreliable, etc.

I felt Bills post stayed within that criterion.

I do, also, believe Mark's missive is helpful as a 
strong reminder that we need to keep the discussion
within the bounds of fair debate on the issues, and not
devolve into attack on the author.

Just MY take.
