Idea lasts.

No idea/opinion is absolute or universal.

If conventional wisdom is the rule, this is an exception.

If an authority blocked the site, that authority is frog in a well.

Monopoly of idea is fiction.

No idea is ever convincing to the free thinkers.

An opinion is an opinion; if you like it, use it; otherwise junk it.

We own up to our mind and idea; we owe nothing to other people’s mind and idea. Do you?

We agree to disagree.
