So far wrong

Reynolds, again. When the linked post was new, it was nothing special. Someone posting elsewhere failed to understand what GR was talking about, did not see what was before their eyes, and went off on a critical tangent that is so far gone in arrogance and wrongness, so flawed at the base, that it is an example of something. So GR updated and linked. And — that post has comments, over a period of hours at this posting. None of the commenters has noticed anything wrong with the post. Astonishing. Reynolds mentions in his update only the flaw that the criticism begins with. The tangent is left as an exercise for the reader. A hint: it starts with the title (thanks to the poster over there for linking to the reference, which is obscure enough that I, for one, would not have recognized it as a reference without the cite) and involves projection.

Continuing Monday afternoon, the tempest in a teapot (it's a bumper sticker!) continues, with an unapologetic and arrogant update to the other post. Will GR update again? I can hardly wait to find out!
