First of all the reputation system does lead to class warfare. Unfortunate but that's the way it works.
The discussions of "you're not posting facts" comes from the folks who are addicted to stats...such as "don't tell me Adam Dunn is a bad fielder unless you can show me a stat of how many runs his fielding costs the team."
My advice: move on and don't post in that thread anymore.
