The analogy with Bozo the Clown makes no sense. He is not in the same profession. His job is to entertain and to make people laugh. But laughing at people who you think have incorrect views is very impolite and primitive and has no place in a civilized society. Unless you are a comedian.
It doesn't make them any more right. Only harder to prove wrong.Squarey wrote:Those crackpots are getting more and more cunning, aren't they...
Mocking downright silly pseudolinguistics (isn't that a pleonasm?) is a normal way of dealing with outliers.
Anyway, this used to be a topic about wrong linguistics, not about ethical decisions.
