I don't know if this point has already been made. If not, I claim the prize for decoding Scott's message!
Over the last few months, he has posted a number of blogs describing how easily witch-hunts and smear campaigns take place over the internet through mis-quoting and quoting out of context. This is merely the latest of his experiments, which quite clearly prove his hypothesis as correct.
I wouldn't say the people posting counter-blogs are necessarily stupid, despite the quality of their posts; merely that they find the temptation of a fix of self-righteous indignation too much to resist.

How about the higher rates for car insurance that young men pay compared to young women? Statistics support this inequity, but I donít think anyone believes the situation would be legal if women were charged more for car insurance, no matter what the statistics said.
There actually is a specific point which contradicts this, and that is young women's health insurance. Yes, some young women are more likely to get pregnant, and yes, pregnancy costs... just like some young men are apt to race cars, and more apt to get into horrific accidents.
