Sorry to infer that my first of the negative opinions of Bergman's profession opinions was not on your extensive quote list. One of your quotes referred to a poster as not being a professional, so go figure.
I think that's the point. We, none of us to my personal knowledge, are professionals with doctorate initials behind our name. We all can have, and say, opinions. We may try to sway people to our thoughts. That, as you have brought out, is free speech, discussion, argument, whatever.
Bergman is a professional - using his doctorate degree behind his name as his qualifications. I've read his opinions in at least one court case where he was called in as a professional expert witness. I, imho, felt his testimony highly negative and opinionated. So did the Court, btw. I'm sorry for not giving a reference, but I'm not writing under a professional title at this time. This instance, amongst others in his writings, is why I feel he's overly opinionated.
In the clicks given, Bergman, PhD, was the name given. He is a professional, he should be able to contain his professional detachment or go into therapy to resolve some of these issues more succinctly.
If he can't do that, he should write under another name when expressing his deep anger towards the Society (like me as in "waiting" and you in "AhHaH."
Then his professional work would be professionally detached and his anger could vent in private work.
Such as several professionals do on H20.
I do enjoy chatting with you, AhHah, as do others obviously do here. I've reread the posts - interesting thread. I really don't think anyone was trying to attack you or your ethics. Bergman just doesn't sit well with some people.
Man, you should have been around when Friend and SS were here!!!!Now, those were Attack Days!
