Yes indeed. I seem to recall having noticed some of this very type of behavior on this list, perhaps even within the last few weeks. I seem to recall that some have even feigned offense at my use of the term, "bullshitty mystical talk".

Sorry to have offended, but I am of the firm belief that it never hurts too much to point out obvious things.
