Me. For a good reason. On many occasions, I know things that are
drastically relevant and I keep my mouth shut, because the ideas
involved are:

1) Dangerous
2) Unpublished
3) Misleading without an extra 40K of explanation
4) Not backed up by experimental evidence
5) Likely to provoke a backlash
6) Aren't worth the effort of defending
7) Are beyond the ability of normal human beings to understand
8) Would provoke religious riots if explained

Got it?
