"Proponents just have to do a better job presenting their case."

Nonsense. Proponents have done an excellent job presenting their case. Vested interests and people who are unable to see beyond their own preconceived notions refuse to see the mountains of scholarship and empirical evidence supporting conversions that has been presented over and over and over again. Clearly no amount of evidence will convince those who are determined to maintain the status quo at all costs, and frankly, it is offensive to suggest that the fault for that lies with proponents.

What you see as "bullying", is anger and frustration at the squelchers who refuse to engage in honest debate about this crucial economic issue. And yes, it is dishonest to stare at a mountain of evidence and sniff that it is "not enough" to convince you when the truth is that you simply do not want to be convinced.
