Sciros, I did read the rest of your post and didn't want to comment on it for fear of carping, but I did find this troubling:

If you're [Spinoza] buddies with Ruse, then fair enough; at least I understand why you're trying to make sure people attack the ideas rather than the person.

You seem to suggest that ad hominem attacks are acceptable, or expected, unless someone in the room knows the person.
