Noisy negativists

SETI: Silly Effort To Investigate

"There are four basic rules for the noisy negativists:

1. What the public doesn't know, I'm not gonna tell 'em.
2. Don't bother me with the facts; my mind's made up.
3. If you can't attack the data, attack the people; it's easier.
4. Do your research by proclamation; investigation's too much trouble
and nobody'll know the difference anyway."

--Stanton Friedman, from the Cryptic Knowledge podcast on BlogTalkRadio.com
