Congratulations! The number one spot is fantastic news!

Gives me a renewed sense of hope in the fight against the forces of ignorance and deceit.

It is interesting the the adjective "strident" is being used to modify the term academic. Perhaps this is an improvement to the term strident atheist.

Nevertheless, strident is an unfair media slur against vocal nonbelievers. Kind of reminds me of America when black civil rights advocates were, and by some still, termed uppity.

How about a more fair and positive term such as "passionate?"
