Hey everyone. This situation can be super frustrating and, because of the nature of this beast, itís easy to think that something is working, only to have the peeling start anew.
Weíve got to be able to debate this stuff without making it personal and getting angry at people. There seem to be only a very few people who have this problem and fewer still is the number who have found their way to this board. Our chances of resolving the peeling increase exponentially with the number of people who can collaborate and share experiences, so the more the merrier. I guess what Iím trying to say is that if you donít like something or some approach, just ignore it, maybe state your opinion about why you think itíll result in a dead end, but donít get mad. This is really hard to do, but itís in everybodyís best interest to react this way.
Also, history is rife with examples of scientists whoíve picked one side of some debate and then vehemently defended it, regardless of what new data might have shownóit seems to be human nature. Itís really easy to get personally attached to an idea, especially if itís something novel, but weíve got to approach this situation like mercenaries: even if itís a really great or even elegant idea, be prepared to adjust your position if the evidence begins to point in a different direction.
