Sharkforum: "Our contention is quite plain - it's better to be criticized for your stated positions than to be misinterpreted and ridiculed based on the assumptions of others. Our editors aren't told what to write, and they aren't censored when they choose to voice an unpopular view. What we're saying is this - interesting dialog comes from contrast. No one is as smart as everyone. SHARKFORUM is the brain child of Wesley Kimler."
