Thank you for writing this.

It helps explain why the google guy's pile of baloney set my teeth on edge, and why his supporters keep accusing me of not having read it - they missed all of the insults and denigration that slapped me in the face from behind his "reasonable" sounding words.

I have been through several abusive situations in my careers, both tech and not-tech (all male dominated). Corporate bullies are often sexist, racist, or just plain abusive and use a lot of the classic abuse methods found in abusive relationships.

What I am trying to figure out is an effective way of responding to those people, like the ones who start off with "He provided *science* to support his views, where's yours?" (I told one such creep that I'd do a meta analysis of the published literature, with cites, and a point by point refutation for $10,000. Then I blocked the jerk.)
