I wonder if skepticism is developing an image problem.
To those whose views are challenged by an evidence-based and critical approach, could it be that skeptics appear to be the "nasty party" in the battle of ideas?
Is it the case that to those whose cherished views are being questioned, skepticism comes across with Tebbitite stridency?
Do Woo communities now feel as exposed as those in industrial towns who were hit by "economic realities"?
Is skepticism getting a reputation for arrogance and smugness?
Is it enough just to be right?
