The most frustrating argument I had in recent times was a friend of mine who said Science and Opinion are the same thing, "Both can be used for anyone's agenda." He couldn't grasp the fact that science, known and valid science, has no agenda and is by its very nature neutral.
Sometimes on here I often see the same sentiment from some people just jumping into the hobby. They spend their time bashing the known science because it doesn't "conform" to their impressions. The ear is not a scientific tool. You can PREFER to like one speaker over another but your preference does not change the science behind said speakers frequency response, limitations, flaws, etc.
