Re: Post of the year
Seconded, and then some.

Dwise1 has an insider's knowledge and has been in on the debate far longer than almost anyone else I know of, if not anyone else at all around this site. Here he beautifully explains what the whole deal is about.

Seconded
Great detailed post by dwise1, glad someone else (and of course, he is not the only one, and with this I praise all) can step up and defend mathematics, which is evidently under attack by a few of the, to put it mildly, unenlightened.

What will they attack next? Obviously no form of knowledge or virtue is off the table. That is why sometimes, I just can't bear to look for a few days.
