for bringing up the fact that people can't write at a high school level in defense of their beliefs...

The thing I am specifically critical of is the idea that someone who hasn't graduated highschool isn't worth of being engaged with in conversation on this site, a lot of pretty articulate people never graduated highschool. Regardless of how articulate someone is it's not really fair to assume someone is ignorant just based on their schooling, especially to strangers online where you don't know their experiences with the topics at hand. I am especially critical of saying that someone is invalid because I view highschool as almost more of an ideological machine then education, something that even in my limited understanding of zen seems inherently incompatible.
