Refraining from calling you "sugar-booty" or anything as
inappropriate as that, why do you figure you might be naive
enough to think that after reliable people have been called a
million different forms of the words 'woo-woo', 'loon',
'crackpot', or 'idiot' over the last 65 years of UFO sightings,
why it's _still_ improper to call a spade a spade and say,
"debunker."

That's exactly why we never talk about racism in the US south.
It's not polite. That said... my heart bleeds for the trammeled
sensibilities of spooge-eating klasskurtxians, fraptious (sic)
pelicanists, reflex skeptibunkies, and inured CSICOPians.
Verily.

Lovely day, eh?
