The EID-Marcellus crew are desperate people. They are playing catch-up, and they know it. As they are fueled and funded by the natural gas industry, nothing they have done to date - or will do going forward - will shock me. Their industry-standard "discredit, divide & conquer" strategy is older than I am.
What is shocking to me is the number of intelligent people that are getting sucked into playing their game. Don't you get it? This is what they want. Their playing field has no boundaries, and they write their own rules as they go along; all to their own benefit.
You cannot win a game with rules written on the fly by your "opponent" ( their choice of words - not mine ). Just by commenting, you validate to others that visit their blog that their
drilling drooling drivel has any substance. Want to drive them out of their skins? Cut the comments to zero. No matter how enraged you become at what they write - or who they appear to be targeting - save your thoughts and reactions for the appropriate place and time.
