Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ah yes, this much-vaunted Groupthink. This is a majority (if you insist on the caveat) progressive/liberal website. So, yes, there is a cw running in that direction, but within that broad statement there is a considerable diversity (and disparity) of views and it sure doesn't feel like I'm enjoying the warm glow of groupthink when I'm having my "dumb" opinions, "shoddy" evidence and "sloppy" thinking utterly trashed. Which seems to happen, on average, about once a week.

Of course a minority viewpoint has to prove their case, just the same as I do. But if, say, somebody wants to come on and suggest that the Iraq war has been a success on the terms bush claims, then you have to accept we're gonna greet it with a lot more skepticism than one we're more inclined towards. That's not an anti-right wing plot, that's human nature.
