Default I don't even like patchouli oil ... or hippies for that matter.

I should have refrained from using the loaded term "hippie punching."
I agree that the reactions were more nuanced than I may have suggested by my use of the tribalism tag. I hadn't intended a blanket indictment of your reaction either. So my apologies for not being more succinct.
I think that your criticism of Freddie's post as too broad is reasonable. But I don't share your sense that it was idealistic. He started an interesting conversation. It was more of a tweak than thesis, but valid enough to inspire a lot of feedback. I think we both like that part.
Also iirc, I read him to say that he is prepping for an academic career. His approach may find a better foothold in a classroom than the blogosphere?
