necessary to go easy on her because no matter what I said or did, or any
of you say or do, I don't expect it to shatter her psyche. That's a real
compliment, but it doesn't mean I think she's perfect, or even good - it
means what it says, and nothing more.<

I didn't think this was an issue. Your sentiment was expressed clearly and understood by me, at least.

I thought that your comment on the expertise of others, and yourself, who you believe have studied rationality (thus, rational thinkers) was inapposite. I disagreed with this aspect of your post because of the reasons I stated and, especially, in my follow up post on "rationality with a little 'r'".
