When I was a kid, my father had a 22, a 30-06, and a 12 ga.
Anything else seemed like a bastard to me.
Now I am 59 and I have over 60 cartridges I shoot.
Now my father is 89 and still only has a 22, a 30-06, and a 12 ga.
If I see a 327Fed revolver on a gunshow table, I will likely buy it.
My father will not likely buy it.
The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
