This responded to a different site, but I believe it is equally
applicable on Radsafe. Out of respect for so-called academic freedom,
I'm not at all willing to reject Radsafe, but Salsman poses no such problem.
In this case, I again violated my own rule and did look at part of this
article. My rule, though frequently violated, is that as soon as I see
that attribution is to an anonymous source, I discard the article and
try to disregard its headline.
To me, the distinction between a lie and a mistake is monumental. When
one gives their name, they are willing to at least accept an obvious
responsibility. A leaker or anonymous source totally denies all such
responsibility. As also do the purveyors of such crap -- the games will
go on ....
It is only human overlearning through a lifetime of practice and
reinforcement that we respond so helplessly to words, regardless of source.
