"you would see he was concerned about people wasting their time doing something that was not as effective as it could be. "
Concern is not what is reflected in that statement or his. Especially when the people on this forum are clearly having good results but it seems to be his and your opinion that his way is the authority on oil pulling. You can be offended if people challenge you on that point but it doesn't make you right.
Your point about respect is taken. I apologize if I have offended you or him in any of my replys. However, I would suggest to you that respect is a two way street. You can't demand it, you must earn it.
