I don't want to take sides on this , but an attack on scientific methodology is legitimate, and not personal. The recent attacks on cladism on this list were attacks on methodology - nothing wrong with that. Pointing out that someone may be using flawed basic methodology is not a personal attack.

It seems to be the feeling of some on this list that we should not examine - or discuss - basic methodology. Why?
