I understand your frustration. But what is the alternative then? Shut down the opponent (opinion) that you don't like with personal attack? Then why do we come and discuss any topic in the web? My point is please don't kill the messenger by personally attacking him/her, but try to kill the message with logic. If your logic is convinsing enough, then trust on people's judgement, they will agree with you.
For example, the thread started very well with Sujon, gatekeeper, Dr. Z, Special1 presentling from different angles before it went downward with personal attack by few and pretty much ensures that this fine topic goes to the gutter.
