While I see the underlying message in your message you linked to..... doesn't the above qualify as ad hominem? I mean, just because he's Russian? And what's with the prejudicial "wallpaper paste bromide" remark?
"After you've taken your dry wallpaper-paste bromide or whatever you impoverished Russians are using as medicine in the ruins of your nation,
point your computer at http://www.badastronomy.com
- they'll *love* you in the
forums over there.
Sayonara, you frigging mental case."
No need to attack a people or group because one person is spouting nonsense or has been suckered in by a story.
