"While most of you may not agree with his opinion, I would find it hard to believe that any of you would have found this forum very interesting without A Smith's input."

Interesting? Frustrating, more like, which explains the snark. If you're going to employ strawmen, repeatedly refuse to acknowledge evidence that runs counter to your argument, and cling to an ideology that has been debunked in the real world, you're going to get called out on it. That's what happened here. And I don't think A Smith was "attacked", but rather his opinions were undermined by humourous references to dead authors, etc. I thought it was a pretty civil response to his frustrating style of argument (and yes, it was his style not his substance that provoked, so let's lose that strawman too), but then I lead the charge, so I guess I'm biased.
