Is this word mess the definition you are referring to as being identical to the one I posted? If not, please repost your definition. If so, then focus and try to restate your thoughts more clearly. It's your definition of positivism we want, not your feelings about its adherents.
You aren't helping your argument by making your definitions personal.
