An interesting post, though with nothing very new. Brief discussion on Theory vs Fact at the bottom. Still worth a read, imo.

It seems like ever so often there's a hot new word for "lies".

When I was a kid it was "credibility gap". :mrgreen:

Feel free to plunge in.

Good article.

I don't mind that there's nothing much new.

I've been on courses where I've not learned much. Sometimes it helps just to reinforce and organise what you already know.
