We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

The idea that science is incorrigibly biased against "new ideas" is decisively rebutted by the rather breathtaking progress science has made."
I would say it is more like Max Planck said, that new ideas succeed not because the supporters have conviced the detractors, but because the detractors have simply died and a new generation has grown up that is "used to" the new concepts.
On the other hand, sometimes great and undeniable discoveries simply happen, seemingly by accident, and are more quickly incorporated.
