OK, I couldn't suppress sarcasm in response to "Duh!" Bad me.

Anyway, I do sort of like the idea of a rogue's gallery. I think it was the Romans who had a rule of sorts, when one person in an intellectual argument resorted to ad hominem attacks, e.g. "you smell bad!" or physical blows "grr, I hit you now!" that person automatically was judged the loser of the debate.

That's not a bad yardstick to measure the debates re: single life, marriage and so on. Just look at the posts here and elsewhere, and see who's talking science and review of original data, and who's resorting to ad hominem attacks and strawman arguments.

Thanks Dr. DePaulo for your level-headed and pro-human research and articles, as always.
