Well, you'll notice my quote was part of a fairly long piece debunking the particular piece of pseudoscience I was talking about. I agree with your point - those of us who understand why a particular idea is nonsense should take the time to explain ourselves, instead of just saying "that's nonsense" and stalking off in a huff. Otherwise we are only making the problem worse.
